    Is Francis to Whimpy?

    We are due very soon and still have no boy's name.

    We want to be surprised, but also ready with names... regardless. We have a girl's name pretty much decided upon but the boy's name is still way up in the air. I've always loved Francis with nn Frankie. Since the new Pope chose the name Francis I can't get it out of my head. My husband has vetoed it for a fn and says it sounds to whimpy. Can I have some feedback on your opinions of Francis please! Thanks!

    Well, I don't think Francis sounds whimpy. What is his reasoning? It is kind of old fashioned and sounds strong to me. How about using it for a mn?

    Yeah, I think Francis sounds wimpy. Sorry. I know a couple guys with the name and they never go by Francis.
    Not expecting, just planning and building lists!

    Franklin, nn Frankie, is stronger. Granted, it's not the name of a pope....

    If you called him Francis, yes. But Francis nn Frankie is old school. I love it!
