Beylka, Bailka and Paika exist.
The first two are a pet form of Beila / Baila (Yiddish forms of Bella), and Paika is a Yiddish pet form of Puah. http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/view.jsp?artid=593&letter=P&search=puah

I also found Boyez & Boyas, Yiddish forms of Boaz, and Boym, a (weird) form of Bunim (Yiddish male name, from the French "bon homme", "good man").
