Leave it as a boys name for heavens sake. Use the feminine version if you want to have a variation of it.

The only frustrating thing about my name is the'spelling. I am actually quite sensitive to it. I loved my name when it wasn't common and now that I'm older and I hear younger people with my name, It'seems strange. It was so different for so long and now It's definitely more common.
