PHOENIX
Gender: Masculine & Feminine
Usage: English (Modern)
Pronounced: FEE-niks
From the name of a beautiful immortal bird which appears in Egyptian and Greek mythology. After living for several centuries in the Arabian desert, it would be consumed by fire and rise from its own ashes, with this cycle repeating every 500 years. The name of the bird was derived from Greek φοινιξ (phoinix) meaning "dark red".

Love it or Hate it?! Male or Female?!

I could see it on either sex. It's not really my style but I could see it on someone else's kiddo.

Seeing as I live near Phoenix and work in Phoenix it's just a city name to me, I had a little girl at work named Phoenix though...she kinda made me like it, but I wouldn't name a child Phoenix especially if I lived in Phoenix! It's just ok to me, I think there are far better place names and/or mythological names.
