Subject: Lucilius and Lucille.

I was wondering about something. The French have names like Camille and Cyrille, which sound rather feminine, but are often used for males. I discovered that there's also a Latin male variant of my name, which is Lucilius (he wrote letters to Seneca or something). Wouldn't it be logical if the French made Lucille as their variant of Lucilius, and used it for boys as well? I mean, if names like Camille en Cyrille are used for males, why can't Lucille?

I was wondering if there exist any records of Lucille being used as a male name, at least in France? Did any of you ever hear of that?

Thank you,
