It was traditional to add these three letters to the end of a boys name to turn it into the feminine version.

And sometimes the name would then just be shortened to ‘Ina’, resulting in a lot of ‘Inas’ all with different forenames. A little confusing at times.

In Scotland, ‘first’ names are know as ‘forenames’, and ‘last’ names as ‘surnames’.
