It would definitely be more helpful if it were possible to filter by gender. Is that possible to do right now? If so, how do I do that?

I tried to do that also but I couldn't. You can only filter them by schoo, However, there are schools that are for for males or females only.

Most schools are filtered by gender, but there are a few that are unisex. This is truly the only way to decipher. When looking through the database, I just kind of search for the names (first) that are close. It is more difficult with certain names to immediately be able to tell gender, but other names you can pretty much rely on instinct (i.e. Miriam, Marjem, Mariem are all feminine looking and sounding where as Moische and Moshe are more masculine sounding). I know this isn't a very good explanation, but I hope it helps a little!
