Most people will recognise this name as being the name of a flower. However, it has also been a popular name of saints and religious figures. Rather oddly though the name was often a male name rather than a female name. When did it change and why I wonder?

This of course then sets of a number of other questions about names. Johnny Cash famously sang about a boy named Sue. has there ever been one? Also what other names do you know that have changed from male to female or the other way.
