You all (commenters in general) think putting a y in -son or virtually any name that ends with n makes it "feminine" but you don't think changing an E to an A makes it "feminine". It's goes both ways of wrong!

Misspelling a boy's name does not make it feminine.

Sigh, this really annoys me. Seems like a misspelling trying too hard to be feminine.
