Feminizing Hebrew names
I was wondering how to feminize male Hebrew names that end in -e, like Moshe or Arye. TIA to anyone who can tell me.

-i(y)th is another Hebrew feminine morpheme compared to the masculine -i(y) suffix.An example:
Jew < Yehuwdiy

Someone may have more of an answer, but -ah is the typical Hebrew feminizing suffix. It is seen in Deborah, Hannah, Sarah and Zipporah, to name a few. That is, when not part of -iah or -ijah.
