In 1967, a lot of men were named Tina! Tina is 100% feminine! There is nothing masculine, boyish, or unisex about it. Names that end with -ine and -ina are actually considered more feminine than names ending with -a or -ah, I think!

Tina is cute and elegant as a name. It’s even lovely as a legal first name itself. I picture a blonde haired, blue eyed, flower shirt and skirt wearing girl with braces who is a girly girl and she talks about Justin Bieber.

Trust me, Tina sounds masculine NOT one bit! For a girl, it’s beautiful and elegant. For a boy, it’s prissy and awful! I have some compassion for those poor men who dealt with having Tina as their name.
Tina was unfortunately given to 57 boys born in the US in 1967? This is a feminine name! Tina is way too over-the-top for a boy, well at least it was in 1967.

I know this is a feminine name and not a masculine! Name your son Tino. Tina’s male counterpart :)
