    Artemis: Boy or Girl?

    The title explains it really is Artemis better on a boy or a girl. I know it is the name of the goddess of hunting but as Artemis Fowl says its the Goddess of hunting so it could go either way (not the exact words as I read it two years ago but something along those lines).
    For a girl I would use the nickname Maisie maybe or a boy would just be Artemis.

    Girl. Even despite the Artemis Fowl character, I don't think you can ignore the fact that the original namesake is a goddess, not a god. I think it should stay with the ladies. Maisie is an adorable nickname by the way.

    The only reason I see it as unisex is I first heard the name in Artemis Fowl and of course he is a boy.
