Shay Honoring vs. James

The name Shay, for boys, is the Irish variation of James. I have been looking for a way to honor my Uncle James who died in a car accident when he was 16. But I want to use Shay for a girl. Do you think I can still honor my uncle by using the name on a girl?

My understanding was that name Seamus ("shay-mus") is the Irish variation of James and Shay is a shortening of Seamus, which I love. That said, I think a girl named Shay could certainly honor your uncle!

Irish variation of James, "supplanter". I left that part out. Just wanted to incorporate that.
