Boy names with soft/feminine nicknames

I’ve always loved the names [name_m]Ambrose[/name_m] nn [name_f]Rosie[/name_f] and [name_u]Lawrence[/name_u] nn [name_u]Laurie[/name_u]
I want to ask for suggestions for any more boy names that have nick names that are perceived as soft/feminine :))

I really enjoy names like these!
[name_m]Alexander[/name_m] “Sasha”
[name_m]Stellan[/name_m] “Stel”
[name_u]Elliot[/name_u] / [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] / [name_m]Elio[/name_m] / [name_u]Elijah[/name_u] “El” “Elli”
[name_u]Franklin[/name_u] “Frankie” (more unisex though)
[name_u]Francis[/name_u] “Francie”
[name_m]Isidore[/name_m] / [name_m]Isadore[/name_m] “Izzy”
[name_u]Judah[/name_u] “Jude” (also unisex)
[name_m]Marius[/name_m] “Mari”
[name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] / [name_u]Nikita[/name_u] / [name_m]Nicanor[/name_m] / [name_m]Nicasio[/name_m] “Nicky”
[name_u]Florian[/name_u] “Flo” “Florie”
[name_m]Raphael[/name_m] “Rapha”
[name_m]Ruben[/name_m] “Ruby”
[name_u]Sullivan[/name_u] “Sully”
[name_u]Valentine[/name_u] “Val”

I’ve always liked [name_m]Albert[/name_m] or [name_m]Alan[/name_m] nn [name_u]Allie[/name_u]

I really like both of them and have never thought of [name_m]Ambrose[/name_m] nn [name_f]Rosie[/name_f] before! I also think [name_u]Lawrence[/name_u] nn [name_u]Wren[/name_u] would be lovely :slightly_smiling_face:

Some ideas:

[name_m]Alistair[/name_m] - Ali/Ally/Allie
[name_u]Charles[/name_u] - [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] (I know this is obvious and not normally seen as feminine but I think it’s soft and gentle so I’m including it)
[name_u]Elias[/name_u] - I love this name when pronounced the “European” way (eh-lee-us), so nn Elie/Ellie
[name_u]Julian[/name_u] - [name_u]Jude[/name_u] or [name_u]Jules[/name_u]
[name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] - [name_u]Nicky[/name_u] or [name_u]Nico[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u] - [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] (love this one)
[name_m]Reuben[/name_m] - [name_u]Rue[/name_u] or [name_u]Ruby[/name_u]
[name_u]Rowan[/name_u] - could also be either [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] or [name_u]Wren[/name_u]
