Help. I can't work out how an abbe can be a female - when google translate tells me it means Abbot? Is there a feminine translation of abbe too?

The spelling of the name is feminine, though.

deborah wessels you think s/he married a Johannes in another discussion.

If she was an abbess then the French is "abbesse."
