Would you assume someone with this name was male or female?

Cote, it is Qismat in Farsi (my family are from Iran) so yes I suppose it is only Persian if the original spelling is retained - still love the word though!

Remus I will duly look into parrot ownership based on your feeling. If it's the only same way I can use the name I may just have to! grin

* sane way, ie not sounding not sane, which possibly I am not succeeding in grin

Never heard of it. But would think it was male.

Meerkat - Yes, that's what I mean. If you name your girl (I hope) Qismat, that will be reminiscent of your Persian heritage. Kismet is Turkish, not Persian.

By the way, how would you pronounce Qismat?
