    I'd stick with the Shay spelling. People might start pronouncing it "Shee" if you spell it Shea.

    Its an Irish name isn't it? Nice :)

    I only know a girl called Shay so I wouldn't use it for a boy.

    To be honest, I think it sounds a bit too "urban" for my tastes. Might just be me though...

    there was a boy at my school called it but it was his nickname cause his last name was a weird one to pronoun lol ..
    i agree with lili24 .. shay for a boy and shea for a girl :) looks right anyways :)

    I have known 2 Shays and both are girls. I am not against it for a boy's name, just tend to think of it as a feminine name.

    Totally agree with this, the Shay just looks more masculine and Shea quite feminine x
