Feminine names for a son

I told my psychologist some time ago that if I ever have a child I'd prefer a boy and I would choose one of these beautiful names:

-Sakura(A japanese flower name that also mean flower growth);
-Crystal(sounds masculine to me - Here in Brazil Crystal is a masculine substantive);
-Sabrine/Sabrina(The most beautiful name I ever heard);
-Yasmine(Very beautiful as well - it's a flower name too);
-Karen/Karine(sound gender neutral to me);
-Aida/Ada(seens unisex to me)
-Elize/Eliza;
-Samira;

What do you think?What could be the consequences of putting a name that seens obviously feminine to most people in a boy?Would it be an issue here in Brazil?What about in the United Kingdom, which I think it's a less sexist country than Brazil?

I also read in several articles and forums that nowadays many parents are giving traditionally masculine names to their girls, so why couldn't boys have traditionally female names as well?

I have just had a girl and my OH wanted Ellen Rose, which I didn't go for. Had we had a boy, I would not go for a famine name. At school their were two boys, one was Kim and the other was Leslie, both had the mickey taken.

James is a nice name for a boy, it isn't a manly name however, it can easily be changed to Jimmy. Jimmy is more laddish than James.

social suicide, especially in latinamerican counties.

think 20 years from now, and a woman (or man) being with him and being aroused and loving his strong body, and calling him by his strong male name.

Why it would be a social suicide for him to have such beautiful and rare names, no matter what name is?

He might be the target of bullying at school, I actually had a classmate before he is a good looking guy and his name is too feminine. It's Zia Nicole, my teacher actually thought he was kidding when he introduced his name.

As others have noted, he would definitely be bullied at school. Very unfortunate, but true. And maybe even more so in Brazil.

Very true, but we all know this is not the same thing. Society discriminates against men big time here, and other ways too. Ask yourself what many people's reaction would be to a women wearing pants vs a man wearing a dress? Or a woman vs a man wearing a thong swimsuit? Obviously reactions SHOULD be the same for all of these, but they are not. Doesn't make it right, so I would never criticize you for choosing a feminine name. But do be aware that your boy will carry a burden as a result.

Karen is a great name for a girl, not a boy, I really like the name Karen.
