Toni is a given unisex name, used for both males and females. In Finnish, it is a male name, a form of Anttoni. In Bulgarian, Toni [Тони] may refer to either a male or a female. Tony and Toni have no separate equivalents in Bulgarian and Macedonian since the Cyrillic alphabet has one letter for both "y" and "i" ("и" as in Тони). In Hungarian, Tóni is also a male name.[1] It is sometimes a short form (hypocorism) of other names, such as Antonio, Antoine, Antonia or Antoinette. It is also sometimes a surname
