Frances isn't a wearable name for a seventh grader. Or a twenty year old. Or a toddler.
Pick names that'll work all throughout your child's life.I'm just another one of those teenaged, name obsessed writers floating around here.
My future children:
And if I don't have a boy and a girl, in that order...

Frances a less wearable name than say, one of the names in your signature (not one bad word about them, just an example)? Sure it's an old-ish name, but it's not nearly in the same "don't age/do well" category as Rainbow, Serenity or Dolly for instance. I know a Frances, sure the name is pronounced differently in Danish, but I've known her since she was sixteen and it has always suited her perfectly well - both as a sixteen year old and now, as a twenty-five year oldZelia/Elja • Nineteen • Name and history nerd from an early age • I have a blog.

Leo and Phoebe is my favorite pairing. Frances and Leo is very nice as well. I loved the suggestions of Hugo and Oscar.

Thanks everyone for your great suggestions!
mischa: I love Leo Raphael, Leo Jasper, & Leo Peregrine. I pratically love all your Frances mn suggestions, I can't choose a favorite. Iris and Jack are really cute too, plus I'm now considering Hugo since not only is it a great name but it honors my dad in a way (he goes by Hugh).
davisellu: So many lovely suggestions! My favorites are probably Persephone, Josephine, Flora, Octavia, Honora, Pearl, Hugo, Lucian, Florence, and Theo.
thatkathryngirl: I'll keep that in mind, thanks!
shvibziks: OMG I love your twin combos! I hadn't liked Agnes before, but Agnes and Leo sound adorble together! So does Flynn and Ottilie. I love Leo Helios, Flynn Illyrio, Flynn Leonidas, Agnes Ophelia, and Agnes Heloise. Also, I agree with what you said about Frances; it's not like I'm naming my daughter Pixie or Moon Unit.
maewynmannix: Personally, as someone who knew a Frances growing up, I think it's extremely wearable at any age. If she didn't like her name for some reason, she'd also have a plethora of nicknames to choose from: Franny, Frankie, etc.
southern.maple: I agree with your thoughts on Frances
Thanks for your suggestions everyone! I have so many options to choose from now I'm open for any other suggestions, comments, advice, etc.
