I always thought that 'Vanya' was more feminine than masculine. Because of this, and my strange logic, I think it's a very cute name~!

I also thought it was a feminine name. Mostly because I kept mixing it up with Valya.

It is also used as a female name here in Bulgaria. I know it from way too personal point of view. That's why I never use my real name /the one we're talking about/ anywhere on the internet. It is a nightmare to be a girl having a name that's known to be used as short call for russian boys. Especially if you hate Russia in your guts.
