"We named our son Francisco and call him Frankie for short. We love it. I actually didn't think I would when we named him that- my husband insisted. But now, I am so happy because it fit him so well. It's common enough that people aren't thrown by it but not so common that we meet people all the time with it. Good, strong, classic name." Jul. 10, 2010:

"In terms of two Power Rangers-like shows of the early 1980s in Japan, Kagaku Sentai Dynaman (Scientific Squadron Dynaman) in 1983 and Chodenshi Bioman (Super Electron Bioman) in 1984, both were dubbed into English, in Dynaman's case as a dubbed parody on Night Flight, while the English dub of Bioman was aired in the Philippines, and the characters of Yousuke Shima/DynaBlue in Dynaman and Ryuuta Nanbara/Blue Three in Bioman were both renamed Frankie in the English dubs and both were watersportsmen, even though Blue Three is only mentally like DynaBlue but physically like...well, DynaBlack (full name Ryuu Hoshikawa in the original Japanese language version of Dynaman - but renamed Huba in the Night Flight parody dub) rather than DynaBlue because of DynaBlack's stealth tactics and subsequently those of Bioman's Blue Three."

"In the days before Power Rangers, two early 1980s TV shows that are part of the Super Sentai franchise in Japan (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was based on 1992's Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger which translates as 'Dinosaur Squadron Beast Rangers') featured characters named Frankie in the English-dubbed versions of those shows. For those who remember 'Night Flight', there were six episodes of 1983's Kagaku Sentai Dynaman (translating as 'Scientific Squadron Dynaman') that were taken and dubbed into English with hilarious results, and in the parody version (which featured among others all them Eurythmics, Huey Lewis And The News, Duran Duran, and Robert Palmer hits in the background during the fight scenes), DynaBlue's name was Frankie (his name was Yousuke Shima in the original Japanese language version). In the Filipino English dubbed version of 1984's Chodenshi Bioman (translating as 'Super Electron Bioman'), Blue Three's name was Frankie but his name in the original Japanese language version was Ryuuta Nanbara."

"Was in the U.S. girls' top 1,000 by 1880 and only entered the boys' top 1,000 in the 1910s, growing considerably in popularity to its peak in the 1950s, when African-American male singer Frankie Lyman of Frankie Lymon And The Teenagers and white American male singers Frankie Laine and Frankie Avalon were popular. Whilst having not featured in the girls' top 1,000 since the end of the 1960s (it was most popular for girls in the 1930s but still not in great numbers), it is still in the boys' top 800 but is not as popular today as back in the Fabulous Fifties."
