Dear all,

I would be very grateful if someone could tell me what the diminutive "Masha"/"Macha" stands for when it is NOT given to a woman but to a man.

Kind regards.

I don't know of any Russian male name that would have such a diminutive.
In case of "Polish" names Machabeusz has such a diminutive form (Masha=Masza), apparently:

dzieci.pl/word,Machabeusz,imie.html?smgputicaid=610dca

Diminutive name Machabeusz
The most common diminutives are
Machab, Machabi, Machasz, Machabeuszek, Masza, Maszi, Besio, Beusz, Beszek, Uszek

Machabeusz

Is that name Polish? It looks like a Sorbian name if anything...

Semitic.

The only really Polish names (in origin) are the Slavic ones, you know ;)

she would have have gone to Russian forums if it was about Russian name

for sure it's not about that name, nobody is named like that even if the name exists in the calendar :-)

Well, "Masha" in case of a woman is a Russian diminutive, not Polish, so I thought I'll make it lear for GoldenSummer.

for sure it's not about that name,

I'm just sharing the info, Wulkan.
I don't know why the OP is asking this question so I share whatever I can find.

It could be, for example, someone's nickname, and not a diminutive form of a name.

nobody is named like that even if the name exists in the calendar :-)

True, but, on the other hand, some parents can be very "creative" about their children's names so you never know lol
