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.
