I am white and so is DH, Is it wierd to name our daughter with a Japanese name?

I really really want to name her Hikaru (He-cah-roo) - shinning light. We also considered Chihiro (cha-he-row) and Satsuki (Saht-ski). We enjoy anime and love the Japanese culture but I am afraid it would look disrespectful or dumb to give out child a cultural name that is not of our own lineage. What do you think.
