Ok, I have a baby nephew coming soon! and I get to name him! I want something unique and different! and I love coptic names!
but all I know is Cyril (kyrollos) and Pavli (Pola)
do you know where I can find some more coptic names? or do you know any coptic names?
if you want REALLY UNIQUE then go for ZEPHANIA
Stavros (Greek) - Cross
Youlios - Julius
Martiros - Martyr (there are people with this name :) )
Antonious - Antony/ Anthony
Arsenious - Arsenious
Look through the commemoration of the saints in tasbeha and the liturgy-- you'll find a lot more there.
personally i like:
Arsany (coptic version on Arsanious)
Antony (Coptic version of Antonious)
Anthony is also a very nice name, maybe use the french version of it: Antoine
Karas is also a very nice name (of a GREAT SAINT)
Bishoy is very nice Coptic name too (of Another GREAT SAINT)
Mena is also a very nice name...

You need to read Coptic and Arabic

there you go:

Mark. bibically, it means polite/shining. the roman term however, means: "God of war".
It happens a lot, even within the same language - some names are used for both genders, eg Charlie, Sam, Ashley, etc and as in your suggestion, Andrea is a feminine name in English and masculine in Italian. Serena is another name where the same applies.
