Reply to: Question about Greek names by Briallen
1. The paragraph means that you can make diminutives by adding -oula or -itsa to female names, and -aki to male names.
2. No idea.
3. The male equivalent is -aki or -ako (it says it right there in the text!)

If you want a more colloquial explanation of Greek diminutives, check out this thread:
