Why كَيْفَك? Isn't Shadi a female name?

One Shadi I know sports a beard.

I see. It seems it's a male name in Arabic and a female name in Persian...

Yes Shadi is a male name in Arabic.

كيفك؟ = ?how are you

But كيفك is not a formal way, it's a slang language, the correct one is كيف حالك or كيف الحال
