    I think of it as a unisex name, but leaning a bit more towards the female side of things (in the US at least). It'd be completely male if you were in Russia. I've known one male and one female Mischa (neither with any Russian roots), and it seemed natural on both of them.

    I know a male Misha (spelled like this) He is originally from Montenegro. I think this is a great name for men. I like it less on a woman.
    Latest list:

    Girl: Lulu, Eden
    Boy: Leo, Wallace, Grady

    Mommy to one sweet little boy who I loved naming Lennox Andrew Michael (Lex for short)

    Sorry, but outside Russia I think it has gone to the girls.

    Like Sasha/Sascha, the soft sounds and -a ending make it sound quite feminine by some standards.

    Same here! I consider it all girl...it just sounds like a girl name to me. Same for Sasha. I knew a male Sasha in college and thought it was so strange that he was named that.

    Yea, I think of mischa barton, and although I know it's traditionally a boy's name, it sounds feminine to me.
    -an Amelia from a time before 'Amelia' was in the top 100.

    Currently feeling:*Roseanne Amelia* or *Kamal Clifford*

    Girls: Rose, Juliet, Roseanne
    Boys: Beres, Kamal
