In this post, we do another concentrated look at a single data set, three tax rolls from Paris in 1421, 1423, and 1438. 370 distinct masculine names and 54 distinct feminine names were recorded in these rolls. There is one feminine name, Honnorée, which is a feminine form of a masculine name, Honnoré, but only the feminine is found in the data; otherwise, there are 21 masculine/feminine pairs of names. 5% of the masculine names have a corresponding feminine form, while 39% of the feminine names are feminized forms of masculine names. While the masculine number is nowhere near as high as it was in Florence, the feminine number similarly shows a strong influence of feminization.
|Masculine name||Number||Feminine name||Number|
 Neither Denisete nor Denisette are, strictly speaking, feminine forms of Denisot, but rather of the diminutive Deniset.
 Gervais itself doesn’t appear in the data, but the diminutive form Gervaisot does.
 Guillemette is not, strictly speaking, a feminine form of Guillemot, but rather of the diminutive Guillemet.
 Jehannet doesn’t itself appear in the data, but other diminutives of Jehan do.
 Perrette is not, strictly speaking, a feminine form of Perrot, but rather of the diminutive Perret.
