We've finally found a boys name we love: Frankie. The problem, though, is that we don't want to use Frankie as a full first name. Someone here suggested Franklin to us, which we love. We're thinking about using it as a middle name and calling him Frankie. What are your opinions on Franklin? Do you automatically think of Franklin the turtle/do you think that's a problem?
Also, we were thinking about Wren Franklin, Camden Franklin, Leo Franklin, Griffin Franklin, Eleazar Franklin or Lleyton Franklin as full names, and almost all of them end in -n, as does Franklin. Do the similar endings make them sound bad? Which is your favorite?Mama to Avery Charles, Henry Eli & Maeve Charlotte

Love the name Franklin! I would suggest using it as a fn, but if you want to use it as a mn, I say go for it! The nn Frankie is adorable, by the way.
Wren Franklin: Not fond of how Wren is considered unisex.
Camden Franklin: My favorite combo from your list! The endings are slightly different here, because it's -en and -in.
Leo Franklin: I prefer Leo as a nn, so I would go with Leonardo/Leopold Franklin.
Griffin Franklin: Although I love both names, the -in endings just doesn't work for me.
Eleazer Franklin: Sounds good together, but Eleazer doesn't fit in with Avery, Henry, and Maeve.
Lleyton Franklin: Lleyton also does not fit in with your sibset.
