    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
    Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
    Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin

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

    Totally.

    Besides, Ant would be a totally ridiculous nickname.
