This name has always sounded female to me. It must be the 'Zara' beginning and the 'a' ending.

In Friedrich Nietzsche's classic philosophy tome, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Zarathustra is the central prophet. He left home at age 30 to live in the forests and caves in seclusion, until a decade later he returns to the land of the humans, brimming with wisdom and joy. He espouses various ideas such as the death of God, the transitioning from animal to man to superman, and the concept of the superman as the one who has surpassed all of the inhibitions of modern man.

It is a beautiful name. For me, it’s kind of hard to get past the association with Nietzsche’s work. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but you may see it as one if you fundamentally disagree with Nietzsche’s thought.

More like a bit of a feminine name, with the a at the end.
