I don't understand why genders can't just share names. Why does it always have to be such a big deal? If you're worried about teasing, just change the spelling, like with Sasha/Sacha.

Spelling it Macen doesn't make the name any more appropriate for a girl, just Kre8yve and bound to cause problems. Pick a different name altogether.
