    Percy

    I have loved Percy for a boy for the longest time, but lately I want to use it for a girl. I'm usually solidly against boys names on girls, but I feel like Percy really works for either gender. What do you think?

    I saw a Persephone nn Persy/Percy on a television show, once, but she was a Nazi spy who died rather violently, so that's sort of tainted my image of the name. I personally prefer it on the gentlemen.

    I would keep Percy for a boy or... choose Persephone and give her Percy as a nn.
    All the best,

    I actually really like Percy as a girl's name. I think it would be an especially cute nickname for Persephone. In my opinion, it's sound would work nicely for either gender.

    What Misha said. Percy by itself is all boy to me. I would go with Persephone or Persis with the nickname Percy. What about Mercy?
