is conventionally a boy's name. The name Or is unisex, and it comes from the same root, and I have met girls named Ori
, which is spelled the same as Uri
My sister knows a girl named Uri
, but it's an exception to the rule, about on the same level as naming a girl James
or something. It's part of an Israeli trend of using boy's names on girls and vice versa; it's not a correct usage.
It's better to stick with conventionally female names for females in general, but I personally don't like Urit.Edit
: Although Or is not in the database, you can find it in the user-submitted names. It's definitely in the top 100 for boys, and used a lot on girls as well.
