    I really prefer Chessie or Cheska, even Franca, but Frankie is cute too.

    My aunt's name is Frances and she's called Frankie. I think it's cute on a girl.

    I love Frankie but had Francesca and Frances. I think the name is overly complicated and ugly looking/sounding. I would name a daughter Frankie without a longer form.

    For the longest time I hated the name Francesca because of how unappealing Fran/Franny is. I still very much dislike Francis/Frances, however, Francesca as a whole has grown on me a bit. I'd most likely never use it because I have other names that I prefer, but if I did, it'd be as a middle name. Frankie is actually cute, but not my personal cup of tea. I'd say go for it.
