I first encountered this name in a booklet of baby names my mother had when she was pregnant with me 30 years ago, and it was listed as a girls' name. I even used the name for a female character of mine. I was really surprised when I found out that this is a traditionally masculine name, and as a result, I have a hard time seeing it used on a man.

Maybe this is very unusual, but I've always thought of this as a strictly feminine name. I didn't even know it was used for men until a few years ago.
