Has anyone ever heard of the "dee" sound added to the second syllable of a name as a German diminutive? A teacher of mine mentioned this, and used a classmate, Ilan, as an example, saying it would become "Lan-dee." He went on to talk about a girl in his family known as Boldee. I didn't catch the full name, but I assume that means it goes for either gender. I'm guessing it would be like "y/ie" in English.
Any fluent German-speakers out there who can confirm or deny this?
