I think it is wonderful that you want your new baby to know about her heritage. But being a Chinese person myself, I think it is difficult for children to grow up with a "different" sounding name that is hard for people to pronounce, it makes them feel a little singled out. Mulan is a great historical figure and definitely someone to admire but perhaps it might be better if this was used as a nickname instead.
