Sora sounds more feminine to me than masculine- it also sounds more like a middle name. It reminds me of 'sorrel', which is a term for a reddish-brown horse.
Saying that you can't name your child something Japanese is like saying you can't name your child Sarah because of the Hebrew origin; if you have that opinion, then I hope your child(ren) only have names like Wayne and Raven.

I love the name Sora! The name Sora makes me think of the main character Sora in Kingdom Hearts and the character Sora in Digimon. It suits both genders perfectly fine. :D I love that the origin of this name is Japanese as I adore Japanese names. ^_^

No thanks. I'd rather not have my name associated with a video game character. I do like Kingdom Hearts, but it would be kind of ridiculous to name your kid Sora after the main character, especially if you're not Japanese.

I think it's fine on either gender, unlike some other "unisex" names today. It sounds boyish and brave, and yet at the same time, it's pretty and soft. It truly is a unisex name.

It is a male or female name, my girlfriend who is named Sora is often mistaken for male if by just her name.

I prefer Sora as a boy's name but it is good as a girl's name. Maybe it's because it has grow on me since I have played KH.

Awesome name. I like it a lot. A friend of mine has a boy ferret with this name, inspired by Kingdom Hearts. I thought it was cute and can be a person/animal/boy's name.

I like this name better for a girl, but it's generally a good name for either gender. The meaning is very nice also.

I love this name, it is so cool. It is cool as a guy or girls name I think. I've heard of it on Kingdom Hearts as a guy and Digimon as a girl and think the name suits them both well. It is well-rounded for any gender.

I like the name Sora a lot. I first heard it as a female name in "Digimon" and later in "Kingdom Hearts" as a male name. I think it makes a much better female name, in my opinion.

Actually I am named Sora. It's a family tradition to name to first child (boy or girl) Sora. I'm a female but my cousin is a male and it's also his name.

The only place I've ever heard this name was on "Kingdom Hearts" and that character was male.

As for Kingdom Hearts, it isn't real life, don't apply that bearer to Japanese culture.

Sora also means fighter or one who goes to war. It means to go to war to save your country.

It doesn't seem like a very common name in Japan, but possible, I believe. Young people these days are getting into using different names, so you never know what trends might come up in the next few years. "Ko" is becoming a rather rare ending for female names rather than being practically standard like it used to be. Now it's more often "e" (ay) or "mi" or "ki" or "ka" or maybe "na" or "no".

I personally like the name Sora, but it can be used on men too. It is more common for females to have this name but keep in mind that it can a guy's name too.
