"A" is a feminine end of the names... It's an exclusively feminine name as much as Sasha!

Actually, diminutive names in Russian ending in "a" aren't always only strictly feminine. For example, Sasha is a diminutive of Alexander and Alexandra - it's unisex, but never used as a given name (no diminutive is in Russia). Vanya is a diminutive of Ivan - a strictly masculine name. Dima for Dmitriy - masculine name. Misha for Mikhail - again, a masculine name. Of course, diminutives like Anya, Katya, Nadya, Liza, Dasha just to name a few are diminutives of strictly feminine name, and are therefore strictly feminine diminutives. You get my point. Then there are unisex ones, which are few. Like Zhenya, which is a diminutive of feminine Yevgenia and masculine Yevgeniy. Sasha and Shura are unisex diminutives for both Alexander and Alexandra.

I definitely know that I am in the minority here, but I love both Sasha and Shura for a boy rather than a girl.

Ted Hughes, the English poet and husband of Sylvia Plath, had a daughter named Shura by his German mistress, Assia Wevill. At age four, Shura was killed by her mother, who committed suicide shortly afterward - in the same manner as Sylvia Plath, who had died six years earlier.

I love this name. I think it's funny but sweet at the same time. I would have loved to be named Shura. Every Shura I know is nice.

In Russian there is also masculine version of Shura - Shurik. Really famous bearer was Shurik from Russian comedy films, for example "operation i". The whole Soviet Union loved him.
