    What is the feminization of Etienne?

    Hello,

    Was wondering if anyone knew the feminization of Etienne (Etienna? I don't know if that looks right?!).

    And I am not so keen on Estephanie

    Thanks!

    It is a french form of Stephen. So any feminization of Stephen would work.

    Behind the Name lists Etiennette as its female version.

    It's not actually from Etienne (which has actually been on my boy's list before), but Etain is a possible honouring/similar name you might like. It is the name of a beautiful fairy from Irish mythology who was turned into a fly/butterfly (according to Nameberry), and although the meaning - 'jealousy' - isn't very nice, I think the sound is lovely. It's also sometimes associated with the Celtic sun goddess, apparently, as well. Good luck - Stephanie is always another option.

    I went to college with an Etain and I always thought it was a beautiful name.
