kolektorka Says:


Whether you see this as a boys' or girls' name is more down to culture. Where I come from almost all names that end with "a" are girls' names. This sounds like a variation of Esra and Azra (both traditionally female names) and so this one will always feel girly to me. Although I don't mind it as a boys' name either, especially after reading about it's history (and I personally don't care whether a name is boyish or girlish, I care only about the way it sounds to my ears).

There's also a Turkish girls' name, Esra. This could be a variant.

All male to me. This is one I wish the boys could just keep, it's amazing and handsome.

Dipper Says:


Eh, I like it better for guys personally. Probably because I am 100% biased towards feminine boys' names. I love 'em.

paulapuddephatt Says:


It always sounded more like a female name to me, too. I don't like it for boys.
