  • "I like this name, it sounds like a very noble name and has been the name of several European monarchs. It sounds more dignified (to me) and less "rough" than Frank. But of course, it sounds very much like the girls' name "Frances."" Jun. 7, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I didn't really start using this name until after I graduated from high school. I only use it for my byline and use my middle name. I still have people calling me by my middle name instead since that's what my grandmother called me. I hate for people to call me "Frank" or "Fran". But, sometimes I introduce myself to women as Francisco (Spanish) or Francois (French). I have met others with the same name. It's prnounced as Fran sis." May. 7, 2008: Report as inappropriate
