Liked feminisations of disliked original names

Do you care for [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] but kick [name_m]Charles[/name_m] to the curb?
[name_f]Fancy[/name_f] [name_f]Francine[/name_f] but flee from [name_u]Francis[/name_u]?
[name_f]Adore[/name_f] [name_f]Alvina[/name_f] but avoid [name_m]Alvin[/name_m]?
Then this is the thread for you!

What are some feminisations that you like but don’t care for the original masculine name? [name_f]Do[/name_f] you have a specific reason?


Thomasin! I also like [name_f]Thomasina[/name_f]. I absolutely abhor [name_m]Thomas[/name_m].


I love [name_u]Louise[/name_u] and [name_f]Cecily[/name_f], but I am not at all a fan of [name_m]Louis[/name_m] or [name_m]Cecil[/name_m].


I love [name_f]Benjamina[/name_f] & [name_f]Adamina[/name_f], but don’t really care for [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u] or [name_m]Adam[/name_m].

Josephine but not [name_m]Joseph[/name_m]!
[name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f] but not [name_u]Gabriel[/name_u]! (Not sure if this is a feminisation though)

I actually do love [name_f]Francesca[/name_f] and not [name_u]Francis[/name_u], not sure if this is really a feminization but it feels like it is.

Aviva and not [name_u]Aviv[/name_u]

Samira and not [name_m]Samir[/name_m]

Noelle and not [name_u]Noel[/name_u]

Victoria and not [name_m]Victor[/name_m]

Jane and not [name_m]John[/name_m] (but [name_m]Jack[/name_m] on a boy over [name_f]Jacqueline[/name_f])

Isadora over [name_m]Isidore[/name_m]

Victoria but not [name_m]Victor[/name_m]
[name_u]Louise[/name_u] but not [name_m]Louis[/name_m]
[name_f]Carla[/name_f] but not [name_m]Carlo[/name_m]
[name_f]Manuela[/name_f] but not [name_m]Manuel[/name_m]
[name_u]Andrea[/name_u] but not [name_m]Andrew[/name_m]

Lets see…

I like [name_f]Cora[/name_f]/Coraline/Cornelia/Cordelia but not [name_u]Corey[/name_u] or [name_u]Corbin[/name_u].

I like [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] (love [name_f]Clementine[/name_f]!) but not [name_m]Clement[/name_m].

I like [name_f]Georgia[/name_f], [name_f]Georgina[/name_f], [name_f]Georgiana[/name_f]…I don’t hate [name_u]George[/name_u], but am at best lukewarm on it.

That’s basically it. I have a lot more the other way around!

I like…
[name_f]Victoria[/name_f] but not [name_m]Victor[/name_m]
[name_f]Georgia[/name_f] but not [name_u]George[/name_u]
[name_f]Harriet[/name_f] but not [name_u]Harry[/name_u]
[name_f]Amadea[/name_f] but not [name_m]Amadeus[/name_m]
[name_f]Mattea[/name_f] but not [name_m]Matteo[/name_m]

I feel like in most cases, I either like both or dislike both! So these are the few exceptions (there may be more, but off the top of my head this is it)

Josephine and [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] are my top two, I think.

I’m the other way around! Haha

Yes, a million times, yes :joy:



Jane, not [name_m]John[/name_m] (but I like [name_m]Jack[/name_m] for a boy)
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f], not [name_m]Charles[/name_m] (but I like [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] for a boy)
[name_f]Juliette[/name_f], not [name_u]Julian[/name_u] (but I like [name_u]Jules[/name_u] for a boy)

I forgot about these 2! [name_u]Antonia[/name_u] is so much nicer than [name_m]Antonio[/name_m]/Anthony and [name_f]Gianna[/name_f] is so sweet while [name_u]Gianni[/name_u] is just meh. I also like [name_f]Alessandra[/name_f] over [name_m]Alessandro[/name_m].

I think I might be the other way around, or like both…

Henriette is stunning, whilst [name_m]Henry[/name_m] is fine
[name_f]Victoire[/name_f] is lovely whilst [name_m]Victor[/name_m] and [name_m]Victoir[/name_m] are quite ugly
[name_f]Severine[/name_f] is far pretter than [name_m]Severin[/name_m] or [name_m]Severus[/name_m]
[name_f]Marceline[/name_f] is enchanting, but [name_m]Marcel[/name_m] is not
[name_f]Apollonia[/name_f] is gorgeous and [name_m]Apollo[/name_m] is fine

I’ll take the gorgeous Wilhelmina over the basic William any day! Thomasin is beautiful whereas Thomas is… meh. And while I don’t hate Bernard, Bernadette is way better, in my opinion.

[name_f]Johanna[/name_f] ([name_m]Johann[/name_m] is okay)

I am extremely fond of [name_f]Alanis[/name_f] but [name_m]Alan[/name_m] is a different matter entirely!

I’m not sure I hate any original form of a feminization, although the closest would be [name_f]Antonina[/name_f] or [name_u]Antonia[/name_u] vs. [name_m]Anthony[/name_m]/Antonio. I do like [name_m]Antony[/name_m] though?

I do prefer [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] and [name_f]Georgina[/name_f] to [name_u]George[/name_u], though, and slightly prefer [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] to [name_m]Charles[/name_m]. I like [name_f]Giovanna[/name_f] more than [name_m]Giovanni[/name_m], but [name_m]Johannes[/name_m] more than [name_f]Johanna[/name_f], and [name_u]Gianni[/name_u] more than [name_f]Gianna[/name_f]. But [name_m]Jack[/name_m] more than [name_f]Jane[/name_f]? [name_f]Jane[/name_f] more than [name_m]John[/name_m] though lol.

If [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f] counts as a form of [name_m]Cecil[/name_m], then I do vastly prefer [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f] to [name_m]Cecil[/name_m] lol.

I have to say I’m not a huge fan of most feminizations, though—I like [name_u]Augustine[/name_u], [name_m]Adam[/name_m], [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u], [name_m]Louis[/name_m], [name_u]James[/name_u], [name_m]Thomas[/name_m], etc., more than their feminine counterparts.
