Is male name Iri [Iri] too feminine?

That name s pronunciation is [Iri].

Iri means wolf in Korean and I m Korean.

Is that name is too feminine in America or Europe?

    Names that end in "a" are surely feminine sounding, due to European language influence.

    When a name is totally unfamiliar people don't make the same assumptions. They will see that you're foreign, and won't be surprised if you have an unusual name.

    Don't worry about it.

    Lots of men's names end in -i, like the Russian name Yuri, or Garry, or even Harry.

    For most Americans (the vast majority of whom know nothing about Korea or Koreans or names...), they would have no reaction as to 'feminine' or 'masculine' at all as far as your question goes. They will probably not even recognize that a name is involved in choosing those three letters. They would 'draw a blank', as we say in America...

      From a "western" point of view, actually from Britain, Iri simply looks strange, simply not European or English-speaking American.. For me it has no serious gender characteristics, though I might assume that it is male, because it is short, and has a male-feeling vowel.
