    Naming our daughter Frankie

    I’m due with a girl in 6 weeks and we know that we want to call our daughter Frankie. My grandmother’s name is Frances and we want to honor her but I am wondering if I am going to be calling her Frankie almost 100% of the time if I should even bother putting Frances as her name on the birth certificate?
    Should I just do it as an option for a more formal name once she gets older or is it more confusing to put a name that won’t be used frequently on the birth certificate?
    I am torn and I would like to hear other opinions on the subject!
    Thanks in advance!
    The combo will be either:
    Frankie Marion
    Frances Marion

    I'd probably just go with Frankie. It would mean she has her own name, separare from a relative while still honouring and I think nn names work fine, if they're the name you're always going to use

    Thank you for your reply!
    I agree, especially since my grandma Frances is very much still alive and we see her a lot I could see it get confusing at times with them having the same name.

    I LOVE the name Frankie! I think either version is fine, but would probably prefer just Frankie. Marion is beautiful as well, and if she ever really needs a more "formal" name she could just revert to that if need be.

    Thank you!! We really love it too. That’s a great idea using Marion if she wants something more formal. I think that would work out well!

    I'd name her Frances to give her more options throughout her life. Also, I see your son's name is Maxwell -- do you call him Max? If so, I feel there's more "symmetry" with Maxwell/Max and Frances/Frankie.

    Thank you for your opinion! That was originally our plan but I have just recently started to question it! My husband and I do not call Maxwell “max” but other relatives do on occasion and I assume schoolmates might in the future.

    I love Frankie! I named my cat Frankie and people also joke about how “human” a name it is, otherwise I’ve only received good feedback on the name. You really can’t go wrong!
