"We wanted a boy" names
Someone pointed out in a baby-naming thread that giving multiple daughters feminized masculine names, like Josephine, Charlotte, and Philippa, can come across as "we really wanted sons" -- especially if the nicknames are Jo, Charlie, and Phil. Despite this observation, people keep suggesting such names as a little sister to Georgiana nicknamed Georgie, so I thought: why not collect 'em all in one thread?
So, the task: what classic feminized versions of male names can you think of? If they fit the category, they'll automatically have a boyish nickname, although there may be other, more girly diminutives as well (such as Fina, Lottie, Pippa, and Giana for the above set).
