Mei is also used as a masculine name in Chinese. However, it's more common for females. So, I think that the "Gender" of this name should be changed from "Feminine" to "Feminine & Masculine". Some evidence for this is that Mei is also used as a name element in unisex and masculine Chinese names such as Meili, Meiling, Meihua, Meilin, Meihui, Meiqing, Meichun, and Mei-sun.

My Chinese name at birth was Mei Qing 美清--It's traditional for the father's father to choose any grandchild's name but I'm only half Chinese and on my mother's side so her father named me.
