Is 'Allegro' a male or a female ?!
dhia hassen

when you hear 'allegro' do you think of a male or a female , is it a 'malish' or 'femelish' as you see it ?

Eric Johnson

When I hear "allegro", I think of music and drawing bitmaps, not maleness nor femaleness.

Edgar Reynaldo

Neither it's a tempo. Quick, and lively - allegro

If you mean is Alex the Alligator male or female, you'd have to ask Johan Peitz

Chris Katko

It's gender fluid.

Neil Roy

It's a library. A collection of 1's and 0's. That's it.

Chris Katko

Next you fascists will be telling us binary is only two numerals.

Eric Johnson

Next you fascists will be telling us binary is only two numerals.

Don't you mean "only 10 numerals"? :P

dhia hassen

I am talking about the name not the library , is the name malish or femalish from your point of view ( i know no one wants to answer this XD ) .

Elias

That's like asking if "fast" is male or female. "allegro" is just the Italian/French/Latin word for "fast".

Some languages apply a random gender to every noun though, for example in my native German each word is either he/she/it. In that case the gender of just "Allegro" as an entity would be "it", the gender of "the Allegro library" would be "she" but for example "the Allegro source code" would be "he".

random gender

If I recall correctly (99% unlikely) in highschool some of my friends were taking French 3 and discussing how the genders in French are basically like phallic representations. Your foot is a man because it goes inside a female shoe. And then how it breaks down because you have a foot, in a sock, in a shoe.

Elias

In German it's mostly random, both foot and shoe are male :p

dhia hassen

Ops ! so its really gay there ::)::)

Bob Keane

Maybe it is like the French computer.

Neil Roy

Don't you mean "only 10 numerals"? :P

You win the thread! ;D

Anyhow, you all are debating the gender of a non-existent entity. You really must be bored!

I wonder if Allegro would make a good name for a human offspring... :-/

Append:

Apparently, according to namesberry.com, Allegro is female, and there's a derived name "Allegra" which is also female.

Allegro

...

Gender: F
Meaning of Allegro: "brisk, sprightly"
Origin of Allegro: Italian

...

ALLEGRA is a delicate ballet-dancer name; ALLEGRO, which means a fast-paced movement in music, is stronger and more vibrant.

Can't say that I have... can't say that I want to either! 8-)

There are some things in life, I just don't need to know. ;)

bamccaig

Pretty sure alligator's sexual organs are tucked under the skin. :P Before you get weird on me, I used to watch the Crocodile Hunter (the late Steve Irwin) like every week. :P Firstly, I don't think you'd be able to tell gender if there was Alligator hentai (well, unless the hentai style gave it away somehow), and it probably wouldn't be very disturbing to see either. Then again, I take that back, I'm sure it would be cringe-y.

So according to namesberry.com , allegro is a female , and i knew it already , because the name looks like a female one , allegro is a women , and beautiful middle-aged woman , and we are happy for that :p

So according to namesberry.com, Allegro is a manly female? :-/:o

Allegro is a manly female?

That sounds gay. And I think Allegro is a killer train, a train that's killing people.

Chris Katko

I think only half the word is gay. The gay half. The other half is straight.

Wait. What the hell are we talking about?

Neil Roy

Okay, found an image of a female alligator... Alexa maybe? ;)

Well, that's all, folks; I've now officially seen it all. Thanks, Neil. I can stop using the Internet now. That's a wrap. :o
