Princess Hockey Says:


This is a perfect nickname for Frances or Francesca. Please don't name the child Frankie...give them the elegant Frances and let them have options when they're older to use Frankie or Frances.

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.

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.
