I have a quick question. Although the Saint Augustine that we are familiar with was a man, wouldn't Augustine be a (French?) female diminutive of Augustus. -ine is a feminine suffix, is it not? Ex: Justin and Justine; Ernest and Ernestine.
I love the name Augustine for a girl (Mary Augustine Louise), but would never give my daughter a male name. So, what are the origins?
Thanks in advance, Rebecca
