Comments for ZHENYA:

My name is Zhenya and its not only a female name... In fact, most Zhenyas that I know are guys. It is a very popular Russian name for both females and males.

You list "Zhenya" as being the pet form of the Russian name Yevgeniya (the Russian form of Eugenia), but like Sasha and Shura it's a unisex nickname that's also used for Yevgeniy. [noted -ed]

I know that this name is really unisex, but I actually think of it as the masculine spelling due to a (female) Russian cousin of mine who spells it as Jhenya but once knew a Russian boy with the same name who spelt it as Zhenya. (The two names were pronounced the same, incidentally.)

Anyway, regarding the name itself - I like the way this name sounds, and it's interesting because, even though it's a diminutive, it sounds (to my American ears) like it could actually be the full form of a name in its own right. Although, if it WERE used as a full name, it would sound odd for a male to have the name as such. It makes complete sense if used the correct Russian way, though.
