Gender: F Origin of Thomasina: English, feminine variation of Thomas

Though rarely used now that many parents would rather appropriate men's names than sweeten them with feminine endings, Thomasina does have some vintage appeal.

Thomasina Coverly plays a large part in the Tom Stoppard play Arcadia. And Thomasina also has some critter cred--Thomasina Tittlemouse is a Beatirx Potter character, there's a Disney movie called The Three lives of Thomasina, about an enchanted cat, and a Paul Gallico novel titled Thomasina, the Cat Who Thought She was God.

Another version is Thomasin, used for a major character in Thomas Hardy's novel The Return of the Native. She is commonly called Tamsin, the more popular short form.
