Frankie is good for Frances but not for the lovely, elegant Francesca, to me.

Eliza1303 Says:


I think it’s cool and short but there’s just something I don’t like about it

Wittyusername103 Says:


This name sounds good on any age. I don't like Francesca or Frances but I love this.

cabosanmucus Says:


People seem to forget Frankie can be short for Frances or Francesca not Franklin. I find Frankie cute a la Sadie and Millie.

I love this name for a girl and hate it for a boy- it also reminds me of the magazine as well as being upper cute.

Catastroffy Says:


I'm sorry, but this name makes me shudder. I have a bad association with an unpleasant Frankie I knew, and even if I didn't, I just don't like it.
