Khalif (also Khalifa) has a very specific meaning in Islam: Successor to the Prophet Muhammad and leader of the Muslim government.

Since 2014, Khalif/Khalifa is the title used by the leader of ISIS/ISIL/the Islamic State.

It is also the name of the Sheikh of Abu Dhabi.

It is definitely a muslim/arabic name.

I've never heard it before.

Is it Ka-leef or Car-liff?

I like the first but not the second.

If you are Muslim, use it. If not, think twice.

As millymollymama said, if that name is part of your culture go ahead. If not I'd find it rather odd.
