Well that has never been a problem for people in everyday life. You get plenty of girls' names which are the female equivalent of males (or vice versa):

eg: Samantha/ Samuel; Henrietta/ Henry; Patricia/ Patrick; Georgina/ George; Josephine/Joseph; Michaela/ Michael; Christine/ Christopher etc.

And what about she/he or woman/man?

It's not like a female version doesn't hold any weight on her own. It's part of our human culture to have something like that.
