Argh, I can't help myself with this name and its obligatory rant!
Esmé was first known to be borne by a male, Esmé Stewart (or Stuart), 1st Duke of Lennox: he was born in 1542 to a French mother (Anne de La Queuille) and an English father (John Stewart/Stuart, 5th Lord of Aubigny). Additionally, Esmé is by all accounts grammatically masculine in French; the proper feminine form would be Esmée (pronounced the same as Esmé; cf. René / Renée, Aimé / Aimée).
