Gender Neutral German Name

A nice international name?

A conversation which might have happened after a sneeze. Now I want to know if that word is truly gender neutral, since many words in other languages have gender (like table in Spanish is 'mesa' which is feminine). Per this site it is feminine, so I guess it's not truly neutral. But either way, it would not be a good name for a child. Maybe for a cat with allergies. Scratch that (haha), it would be an excellent name for a cat with allergies. Good luck with spelling that name on any forms though. I double-checked the spelling to ensure I didn't make a typo in the comic. 

L: We could name our kid Gesundheit - it's gender neutral.
M: Well, I agree with the second half of that.
