Beautiful name... but sounds a little bit feminine. No offense to anyone.

I don't see this name as remotely masculine and it's not because it ends with an 'a.' I'm more than fine with joshua, ezra and luca and misha being male names.

I greatly see Ilya as feminine. I prefer it for a female.

I think this name is lovely, and it seems to be particularly agender in my opinion. It has a very elegant, light sound much like many other forms of Elijah.

So pretty. It's totally not feminine. Nobody considers names such as Joshua feminine so don't consider this feminine either. It's a pretty name that I'm surprised hasn't caught on over here yet.

How immature are you that you judge names from other cultures by the standard of your own, and say "Oh this name is totally feminine"? Even when some of you have admitted that names like Joshua aren't feminine despite also ending in -a. Not everyone in the world has English as a first language, or even speaks English, so get over yourself.
