Comments for the name Amédée

Comments for AMÉDÉE:

I am surprised to see this name listed as masculine. It seems feminine to me and on other sites it lists this name as feminine.

I checked and Amédé is masculine while Amédée can be both. It's very rare, quite old fashioned. Kinda nice too.

As a genealogical researcher with a lot of French ancestry, I can tell you that Amédée was not an uncommon name in 19th-century Louisiana. Although the double-e ending of the name is feminine, it seems to be the preferred spelling. I have yet to come across a woman with this name. My great-grandfather's brother was named Amédée, and was the manager of the family's plantation when he died unexpectedly in 1862.
