I love this name. I think it's funny but sweet at the same time. I would have loved to be named Shura. Every Shura I know is nice.

Ted Hughes, the English poet and husband of Sylvia Plath, had a daughter named Shura by his German mistress, Assia Wevill. At age four, Shura was killed by her mother, who committed suicide shortly afterward - in the same manner as Sylvia Plath, who had died six years earlier.

I definitely know that I am in the minority here, but I love both Sasha and Shura for a boy rather than a girl.

"A" is a feminine end of the names... It's an exclusively feminine name as much as Sasha!

Actually, anon user from 4/4/2015, diminutive names in Russian ending in "a" aren't always only strictly feminine. For example, Sasha is a diminutive of Alexander and Alexandra - it's unisex, but never used as a given name (no diminutive is in Russia). Vanya is a diminutive of Ivan - a strictly masculine name. Dima for Dmitriy - masculine name. Misha for Mikhail - again, a masculine name. Of course, diminutives like Anya, Katya, Nadya, Liza, Dasha just to name a few are diminutives of strictly feminine name, and are therefore strictly feminine diminutives. You get my point. Then there are unisex ones, which are few. Like Zhenya, which is a diminutive of feminine Yevgenia and masculine Yevgeniy. Sasha and Shura are unisex diminutives for both Alexander and Alexandra.
