  1. Yeah I knew about this name already, that is what Japanese and male. To be honest, less common names at the bottom of the list will ALWAYS be more more popular for females since parents are likely to name their girls pretty much anything but will use more common names for boys – it’s a fact. Its probably why if a unisex name was #150 for boys and girls, I can guarantee you there were more boys named after it than girls.
    Anyway, Akira strikes me as male for some reason, so I’m up for it. On girls for some reason it seems a lot more cheesy and common.
