I've liked this name for quite awhile now. Looking for general thoughts about it (usable or not? I come from a heavy Italian background with some Polish, Slovak, and few others from my mom. However, I'm not married or seeing anybody steady so it may be too much if he could end "Gianfranco Smith" for example.)

I like the Italian flair of Gianfranco. I like many names beginning with Gian: Gianluca, Gianpaolo, Gianpietro etc...Gianni and Franco would be my favourite nicknames. And just suppose you married a Smith (one of the most common English surnames around), I think you would have to choose something more unusual as a first name.All the best,

I like Gianfranco. I don't think I could use it since I have no Italian heritage at all, but if you're Italian it's a very handsome choice. I voted for both Gianni/Johnny and for Franco. Johnny is a cute nickname you don't hear on little boys that often anymore. Franco is very cool, would age better than Johnny, and would probably be my first choice if you won't be bothered by the occasional James Franco reference.
