So far I have:

Arîn

Medya



Do you know any other? Remember there was another name... But don't can't put my fingers on it...

Heeey - good one... I agree - I can imagine that Dicle could be used for both a girl and a boy...

What do you others think?

Dicle is the Kurdish name for the river Tigris...

Oh no! it is so confusing...! Whenever a new member writes "Hello ,my name is ..." I often don't understand if it is a man or a woman because I can't know all kurdish names, only some!
And now you are telling me there are unisex names, oh God!

In Italian in general things are easier: if it ends with A it is a woman (Giulia,Anna, Monica, Chiara, Federica,...) ,if it ends with O it is a man (Pietro, Franco, Paolo , Antonio, ..) .

Is there any rule in kurdish language to make me guess?

Why don't we put in this forum's profiles : M/F(male/female), as Shevin said?

In Kurdish usually girl names end on "a" - but there are exceptions like "Medya"... :)

Boy names don't end on "a" - but usualy like in Italian - on "o" or a konsonant (is that what its called?) - you know...

Vocal: A E U O I etc.
Konsonant: B C D F G H K L Q M N etc.

I think that is a good idea by the way... :)

But there are very few uni-sex Kurdish names... :P

I think there are many uni-sex names. but the thing is that some are only used for boys and others only for girls. like my name amanc is also uni-sex, but you will hardly find a girl called amanc. "Hozan" is also uni-sex, but I only know 1 female Hozan and many many male.
What if tomorrow never comes and you don't know how I feel?

Hmmmm... Interesting theory...

I came to think of another name which is used by both girls and boys:

Derya



But I never heard of a girl named Amanc... So I always assumed it is a boy-name...?

Hozan however is a name I've heard on both boys and girls :) Although in my eyes it is more masculin than feminin! :P



OH! I remembered another one while writing:


Ashtî

Okey - we need to put the meanings of the names in order to decide if they are masculin or feminin... :P

Hewjîn = Living together


Alan = Name of one of the Arian tribes


Shazwar? Is i Şah-ziwar? Or siwar?


If it is: Şahsiwar = King on horse/Şahê ser siwar...


Derya = Ocean/Sea/Lake


Aştî = Peace


Hozan = Singer/Poem/Artist <---- Most accurate translation?


Dicle = River Tigris


Arîn = Aryan


Medya = First Aryan-Kurdish Empire...



If you have any additional translations - feel free to add! :D

Sorry ,I 'm not sure i understood... is Awat the same as Hiwa? does Hiwa mean hope?
By the way, today I was going to ask the meaning of Hiwa and its spelling with persian-arabic alphabet :o and you have just mentioned it now :) Are you reading in my mind? oh God, I hope not :oops:
