Upon first seeing this name I belived it to be a girls name. I now know it isn't, but I think it should be.

Yeah, it sounds feminine to me.

This is used as a form of Noah, so I'd say yes, it's masculine.

I know I beautiful girl called Naoise. It don't think it sounds anything like masculine.
-- Anonymous User  10/19/2007
As feminine as it sounds, it is definitely a masculine name, as Naoise (as is said) was the lover of Deirdre. If I remember rightly he was described as having long raven black hair, snow-white skin and blood-red cheeks (a desirable appearance apparently).

DEFINITELY a male name. And only given to girls by people who do not fully know or understand the name. Would be like calling a girl John.

I hate to see girls with this name. It shows no effort on the parent's part. They clearly just like the sound and don't care what it means!

Naoise is pronounced NEE-shə.

I looked this name up to find out how to pronounce it. It's actually quite nice sounding, but I also think it would sound fine if it was pronounced how it is written: Nay-oi-z.

I only know girls by the name of Naoise. Please add that it is also a girl's name.

I always thought this was a girls name, I only just realised that was wrong.

I know a girl called Naoise. No one spells it correct.

I personally think it's a great Irish name. Its spelling is foreign to an English speaker but well worth the trouble in return for having such a beautiful name.

I love this name and will forever treasure this name as nearly three years ago a girl in my class with this name tragically died while getting a bone marrow transplant. I love the name and more so I loved her. If you have this name I treasure you and your name. If you don't like this name I can't understand you. I plan to name a daughter I have Melanie-Rose Naoise in memory of her and because I absolutely love the name.

Wwwwwweeeeeelll then, some of you think very fondly of the name and others of you think I may as well have been called John. I came across this site looking for the meaning of the name. I am well aware of the (very feminine sounding legend) although I understand he was male, but c'mon, long dark hair and fair skin with rosy cheeks?... manly my mother done her research well and I'm not sure if everyone knows this but my name is pronounced neesha. The legend is clearly just that- a legend. I love Irish mythology as I live and grew up in Ireland. I am not ignorant and neither is my mother of the fact that this name started off male, but so did Tracy... and how many men do you know called Tiffany nowadays? Just because it was once a males name does not mean people are obliged to only use it as such. If you are on this site for baby names I must say I get a good reaction when people ask my name. To be honest when I tell people it's a male's name they usually think I'm joking. But then again, maybe my mother should have called me John.

For years and years and years John placed in the Top 1000 baby names for girls in the United States. Anyway to me Naoise sounds French and somewhat upper class. I view it as a feminine name.

The name Naoise means Warrior. Its origin is in the legend of Deirdre of Sorrows. Naoise is a warrior in the court of King Conchobar, he and Deirdre fall in love and elope to Scotland even though the King had claimed Deirdre for his own. Eventually, Naoise and Deirdre are promised that they can return to Ulster without consequence but it's a lie. Naoise is murdered, the King marries Deirdre and she eventually commits suicide.
It can be used as a unisex name and is spelled different ways accordingly.

I don't know why people are saying it's only males that can have it because of some legend. There are lots of girls named Peony despite the fact that the flower got its name from a male god. I view this as a unisex name. I especially see it as a girl's name since the name Neesha is a Hindu name meaning night time and it's mostly used on girls.

I think this name written can be any gender but the pronunciation of the name Neesha is the feminine form of the name and Naysha is the masculine form. I am sure of this because my name is Naoise and I am a guy.

I really get annoyed as I am often bullied for having this name. Everywhere I go is just another website with people screaming it's a girl name girl name, well I'm sick of it.
