@Isaac How Jewish is he? How do you differentiate between degrees of Jewishness? Sorry. Couldn't help it.

comment The male name Yona
Please note: My prior comment makes a lot of debatable assumptions. Another example is the name Simcha, which is grammatically feminine.

comment The male name Yona
The coincidence of grammatical gender and gender of the signified person when it comes to naming after pre-existing animals or objects isn't necessarily meaningful. Male ostriches, for example, are also b'nos ya'ana, and it would therefore not be problematic (for grammatical reasons, irrespective of aesthetics) to name a baby boy Bas Ya'ana.

@Alex I think that is an answer to the original question at least as much as it is a comment on yydl's.
