Masculine forms of feminine names?
Feminine forms of originally masculine names abound, but what about names that turn this pattern on its head?

* I used Behind the Name as my source; I know, for example, that Nameberry has Cecilia listed as a "feminine form of Cecil," rather than the other way around, but BtN has Cecil being derived from Caecilius, which was in turn listed as a masculine form of Cecilia. A list of more potential candidates can be found here (though this list may not be 100% valid): http://www.behindthename.com/submit/...=m&operator=or
What do you think? Which do you like (or like best)? Can you think of any others?
