No, Constantine is not 'feminine"

KassemJ Says:


I don't see Constantine as feminine i absolute slightest. It such a strong, rugged, sophisticated, handsome name that is criminally neglected. I say go for it and give this name the respect it deserves.

I love Constantine! The new TV series with the eponymous hero character has made me love this name even more. Though I see that it may be "too feminine" for a boy's name, according to some people, I don't see the harm for softer-sounding boy's names, especially since people are having no compunctions with downright boy names like James, Ezra, Wyatt for their girls.
