Feminine Baby?

Feminine Baby?

Are the baby names inherently masculine, or do they have female counterparts too, such as un chiot --> une chiotte; un chaton --> une chatonne etc?

Bonjour B1,

They are masculine most for the time. It is quite rare to find feminine equivalents.

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
