Hi! I was wondering, what are some girls names, that when shortned, or nicknamed, turn into boys names, or masculin sounding names. I know Sam/Samantha, obviously. Heres another one: Cole/Colette. Most people I mention that to are liek "Wait, Cole/Colette? What? OH, I GET IT KNOW! Why hadn't I thought of that."

I'm rambling, arn't I?

Well, Thanks in advance,



So, thay can chose. I hated colette, until i figured out Cole (thnks to sweet life of zach and cody).

I was just wondering.
