<< No same for male or female..
after all it's usually the last name that is a "dit". You don't
differentiate on a person gender with the family name >>

Hi Renée and Richard.

Renée, you're right, of course! However, "dite" shows up occasionally when
there is a variant of a female given name. For example: Judith dite Judique
Benoit (wife of Claude Leblanc) of Acadia.
