    I was just looking at Fritz yesterday too. =] I like it. Initially it makes me think of a squirrel or cat, but then I think of a cute young man. If people saw it on a boy I think they'd get used to it and some of the associations would disappear.

    I think the nn Fritz is definitely ready for a come back, even in the states!! I'm not sure whether it's ready to come back as a stand alone name though... I like Fritz (prefer Frits-see note) a lot! (NB: I'm American, but my father was from NL and I have many Frits's in my not too distant family tree).

    Ooh, Franz is kind of cool!

If he or his family had a strong connection to Germany, I'd say it could work, but otherwise I would find it odd on an all-American boy.
    Yup, I'm from the US. I do have some German heritage (along with English and Irish), but my family on both sides has been in America for many, many generations. Thanks for your input!
