I had a co-worker younger than me who is named Paulette nicknamed Paulie. I quite think "ette" names are cute, I mean apparently Juliette is popular now.

My name is Paula. I used to wish I was called Paulette, as I thought it was the prettiest feminine version of Paul, along with Pauletta. I think the description on here is kind of unfair. It's attractive enough.

EvaThyssen Says:


Pauline is so pretty! And I love Paula, but with my Spanish pronounciation: POW-lah.

Michaela Says:


I think this is delicate and frilly. Lovely, but I prefer Pauline or Paulina. I also like Pauleta! I disagree with the pp, I think the feminizations are very accessible, and very distinct.

Poppy Says:


Ugly. Along with Paulina. Paul is just one of those boy names that cannot be feminized.
