I think Ignatius is more of a girl name and I would name a future daughter this maybe.

It's far too fancy for any child, his nickname would be Iggy.

I would love to name a DAUGHTER this since it sounds feminine to me and I think it is so cool how a saint was named Ignatius Loyola and my middle name is Noyola.

This name doesn't sound feminine at all.

Prewett, Ignatius
Husband of Lucretia Black and a paternal uncle of Sirius Black. Since Molly and Sirius are "cousins by marriage," Ignatius must be closely related to the father of Molly, Gideon and Fabian Prewett. Ignatius and Lucretia were childless. (Harry Potter) And the feminine form would be Ignatia.

I like it better as a middle name than a first name.

It's a wondeful name. A possible nickname could be Ignace.

This name is very unusual.

Might be a cool last name for a book character of something?

I love this name, and Saint Ignatius of Loyala was an awesome saint! He is the favorite of a Jesuit priest I am really close too, so it has extra personal significance too. If you don't want to use Iggy as a nickname, you could use Nate. It doesn't sound feminine at all! It's a strong boys name. Unique without being weird.

Cate Blanchett's third son is named this.

This is my first name and personally I hate it and think it is the ugliest name on the planet. Also, I really don't think this name is feminine in the slightest. It's just an awful name to have, please don't name your children this, they will hate you for the rest of their lives.

I think that this is a great name! It sounds classy. It is my little brother's middle name.

Pronounced "ig-NAH-tsi-uws".

Czech pronunciation is ig-NAH-tsee-uws.

This name is used quite commonly among the Dutch. The South African Dutch settler records contain many instances. The Dutch pronunciation is very different from the English being: I-KH-N-AH-T-I-ə-S.

Ignatius is a male-only name, as is any other name of Latin origin ending in "us." To make such a name into one that is female, replace the "us" with "a." Thus, "Ignatia" is the female form of this name. Anyway, neither is a bad name. I don't love them, but any real given name, like this, is to be preferred to something somebody pulls out of nowhere, e.g. Kaden, Nevaeh, etc. Or a surname, e.g. Hunter, Jackson, etc.

The name Ignatius was given to 38 baby boys born in the US in 2012.

My uncle was named Ignatius and I would love to honor him by maybe passing his name on to any future son I might have, as a middle name. It has a great meaning, and has a rich history, but it WOULD be a tough and heavy name for any little boy to pull off! The nickname Iggy is so cute though...

Also this name seems all-boy to me! It's been used for boys throughout history. The -s ending and the sound of it just doesn't sound feminine, and even if it does (for example, Ezra, Micah), the fact that it is a boy's name would make me not even consider using it for girls. Not a fan of boys-names for girls, most gender-neutral names, or girls-names for boys for that matter.
