I wouldn't personally. The image that comes to mind is a sort of body builder type, and some of the shorter nicknames (Limpy, Oly) are not great.

Fabulous, but quite a lot to live up to I think. If you are a type A personality couple she will carry it off fine. If one of you is type B you may want a name with less overt expectations.

You'd need a big personality to carry off a name like that...

I see why people gravitate to it, as a less popular alternative to the very popular Olivia but I just don’t like it. The Limp sound is very pronounced and is thoroughly unappealing to me.

The name Olympia is wonderful and for sure underused. It's refreshing compared with Olivia. The Limp reference I don't think will actually occur naturally, i don't see it coming up.

I love it. I'd find it a bit odd without some Greek heritage but hey, not my baby.

Love it. Reminds me of Fortune's Rocks by Anita Shreve :-) Don't think you need Greek heritage either, particularly; neo-classical kind of names were pretty widespread in the Anglosphere from 19th cent on.

No, to me it's a railway station and arena in west London.

@alionthatneedscourage me too, that was my first thought, if I ever see that exhibition hall again, it will be too soon!

It sounds quite different in Greek as the emphasis is on different sounds...it's O-lim-BI-ya, as the p is a b sound in Greek.
