Reply to: Is there a feminine form ....... by Wandering Shadows
According to the OED, Douglas used to be a proprieraty name for an axe in the US a couple of years back. According to the same source, the word axe itself made it to the English language via the Old Teutonic "Asha" which itself is related to the Sanskrit "Aksha" and the Greek "axis".

So *Asha*, one could argue in a convoluted manner, could be a female version of Douglas :)
