    Honestly, I don't think it's that bad. Certainly no worse than names like Merit, Noble, Zealand, Fable, etc.

    My first thought was Ayn Rand's book by that name--which is a sort of weird connection to have since the book is very heavy handed.

    I'd consider it more feminine because of the options for Ann/Annie, Emme/Emmy
    Livy/Lucy : Geneva/Gwen : Coralie/Alice : Noelle/Eve
    Eli/Bennett : Jude/Zane: Luke/Leo : Levi/Phineas

    I think it could make a nice word name. It seems more masculine to me.

    Totally.

    Besides, Ant would be a totally ridiculous nickname.
