The only Shai I know is a girl.

I know someone called this, but paired up with another name. Shai - Leigh. I think it's really nice.

Like many other Hebrew masculine names, Shai has also been given to some girls in recent years.
The above poster mentioned the name "Shy-Leigh" - the "li" suffix means "for me" and is added to many names - therefore Shai-li means "gift for me".

Pronounced "shy".

The only person I have ever met who has this name pronounces it like Shea (shey).

Shai is also the concept of Fate in Egyptian mythology. Therefore you could use this name as a replacement for Karma or Destiny. Because the Egyptians saw Fate as being without specific gender (sometimes they called it male, sometimes female), you could use this as a genuinely unisex name.

Another form of the name is Shia, borne by actor Shia LaBeouf.

Shai was an early 1990s R&B band. Their biggest hit was "If I Ever Fall in Love" in 1992, which also is one of the songs with the 3rd longest time (8 weeks) at #2 on the Billboard charts without moving to #1. They are tied with Deborah Cox, Brian McKnight, and Mario Winans for this record.

My name is Shai. It is pronounced like Shay, Shea, rain, pain, may, bay, Kay.. long A sound... etc... The r&b group pronounces it as the Asian culture would pronounce Thai, Kai, etc.. Either way is acceptable but I would start off saying Shai as, Shay, or Shea... if you are referring to a person... P.s. I know more females with the name "Shay" than male counterparts which are usually named "Shea". The females that go by "Shay" are usually, but not always, using it as a nickname or a shortening of their real name. People with the true name of just Shai, however, are very few and far in between. In all my years, I've never met another Shai. I do love my name and am proud that I am so unique. Which in itself, truly is a "gift".

I love Shai.
It is a beautiful Hebrew name.
Its sound has something serene.
It is simple and very nice.
