Gia... For a guy?
Gia is the name I thought of for a boy character who is going to be in an upcoming comic of mine. He is a short, black-haired guy who shows very little emotion, and often comes off as depressed. But when I looked the name up on Google I found a site claiming it could be applied to both genders, but when I looked it up here it said that is was a female name. I do like the name, and I do think it would be sort of fitting for my character, and of course since my comic will be a work of comedy there could be some funny gender-confusion problems, but I just wanted to know if it might be a little over-the-top.~Top Three Names~

Depends on the time period and genre. If its set in modern day, I would think it to be really odd on boy.Ravenna Mireille | Johanna Aithne | Philippa Alizae | Dagny Blythe
Saoirse Giselle | Freja Gillian | Andromeda Roseline | Hazel Olivine
Leonardo Atlas | Eleazar Ike | Dmitri Orion | Alaric Lincoln | Edgar Jericho
Wendell Byron | Alden Sparrow | Raphael ?

I could see it working as a playful nickname for a couple (very) Italian names. Note that it would probably work best if Gia was said the Italian way (Jyah) vs (Gee-ah). You might consider any of the fuller names:
Gianmaria (if gender confusion is something that you're after, you may want to consider this traditional male Italian name)
Gianni (though this is a short form of Giovanni)
Giannino (another short form of Giovanni, occasionally used as a full name)
Gionata (another good one for gender confusion, this one is the Italian form of Jonathan)"Don't try to be modern, it's the most old-fashioned thing there is," - Attilio, The Tiger and the Snow

I think it could work, maybe as a nickname for a longer name such as Giancarlo, but also as a full name. If you want, you can always explain it as "he was named after his grandmother" or something like that.
