The phrase "bel ami" was grammatically masculine in Old French - as far as I can tell from a quick lookup, the feminine version would have been "bele amie." So - though I'm not a stickler for strict gender in names - there's more precedent to use this for a boy's name than a girl's.

I really love this. The nickname could be Bella, cool!

It sounds like they couldn’t choose between Bella or Amy so they combined it. Eurgh.

Please please please don’t do this to a poor little girl! I would absolutely hate being stuck with this name!

I don’t like the name Bella that much but I do like my own name, Amy. It looks as if they’ve combined Bella and Amy together. I don’t like this name because it looks far more dated than my own name, which is quite dated but beautiful like what Bella means.

They just combined the name 'Bella' and 'Amy' and it's an okay name.

A pretty unique name that isn't too out there. Cute meaning too.

Sounds kind of unattractive and dated.

Bellamy is a surname. Carried by many, including English Footballer Arthur Bellamy, American Actor Bill Bellamy, and British botanist and writer David Bellamy.
The fact that it is a surname means that as a first name it should be categorized as UNISEX. Bellamy Blake, from the book and television series The 100 is a good example of a modern male usage. Bellamy Young (whose real name is Amy) and Bellamy Novagratz are two female bearers.

A fictional MASCULINE bearer is the main character in the show "The 100" - Bellamy Blake.

Bellamy Blake is a major character in the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh seasons. He is portrayed by starring cast member Bob Morley and debuts in the series premiere.

Bellamy was manipulated into attempting to assassinate Chancellor Jaha at the behest of his political enemies, an action he later showed remorse for. He only did this because in return for shooting Jaha, he was promised a position on the dropship that would be sent to Earth with his younger sister Octavia on it. By posing as a guard, Bellamy was able to sneak on the dropship unnoticed. Bellamy was not part of the 100, although he quickly established himself as their leader once the dropship landed on Earth. Soon he took over alongside John Murphy.
