    Have never heard Женюля, but I have heard Женуля. Also, Женчик, Женок, Женуся, Женчанская. The number of ways you can change the name is limited only by your imagination.

    Спасибо за помощь, да моя мама меня называет Женечкой, и доченькой, и конечно Женей. (В её письмах)

    Женуля doesn't sound right at all to me...maybe cause I never heard it before, but still...I dunno I could be wrong. My dad's name is Женя, so I heard my mom call him a bunch of diminutive names,lol

    BTW Женуля is what I would expect somebody to call their wife if they were talking to her or about her lovingly...because the word is Женa(with small letter of course)...see how I see it is, if the word ends in a hard letter(such as a) then u would use an у, but if it ended in a soft letter, like я, then u would use the example I provided. I dunno that's just my theory on the subject,lol

    How about Misha? I know a guy named Misha and once I heard his mom call him something like Mishishinska.

    Hmmm, I'm afraid we're going to have to acknowledge that there is no universal rule about diminutives because to me Женуля sounds as a deminutive of Женя, certainly not of жена. (I'd say the latter would be женуся if anything). It looks like different people react differently... Maybe it's just me, but I automatically associate 'нюля' with something very...ahum...shall we say... French and X-rated if you know what I mean... It just has this sound...very provocative...

    Is it just the sound, or is there a particular association?

    I have a strong and constant association of an openly pornographic nature of a particular way of pleasuring yourself. It's not so much the sounds, I'd say it's the overtones really. It's difficult to explain as this is something I haven't quite figured out myself. I've had this association for yonks really. Maybe this is because I'm a bit synaesthetic, but I wouldn't know.

    There is some Russian blood in me... All you need to know is that I am a native speaker of Russian. (c) You need to know, because you need to know.

    Russian, male, from the окающий Volga region (hmm... Нижний Новгород?), living in St. Petersburg. 22-27 years old, 25 being my pick.

    Observation and deduction.

    Well done, bad manners. Excellent deduction... yet nowhere near apart from the fact that I live in St Pete. What made you think I was from the окающий Volga region? (I'm not.) As for my being 25, well, thank you, bad manners, I'm flattered. The truth is I'll be on the wrong side of forty soon. How did you arrive at such conclusions? I'm really curious.

    You must be older than 22, for you have finished your studies in the university. You are unlikely to be a lot older than that, given that you still boast of your education. A few other things, too.
