"My name is Francine and to be completely honest here, I Hated my name growing up. Most people called me Fran, Franny or even Frankie.
As an adult now I can tell you that I absolutely love my name, and if anyone ever tries to shorten it with something cutesy, or even just "Fran", I quickly correct them and say "It's Francine" and smile." Jan. 13, 2009:
"I love it. It's a little unusual- but not in as bad way." Sep. 19, 2006:

"A mid-20th century relic which, unfortunately, is in limbo with Ethel, Beulah, and Mortimer - names popular in the early 20th century but themselves out of fashion now." Feb. 5, 2008:

"My name is Francene, spelt a little different & as an adult I absolutely love it!" Oct. 20, 2018:
"I don't see this as an Ethel/Beulah/Mortimer type name but more of a Jan/Judy/Arthur type name. It was popular around the middle of the 20th century, but these days parents prefer to call their daughters Francesca or even go back to the old-fashioned Frances (Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain named their daughter Frances Bean)." Jun. 3, 2008:
"When this name was popular in the 1950s, so were Jan and Judy, and Linda, Patricia, Denise, and Sandra - but Ethel, Beulah, Hortense, Irma, Eunice, and Bertha had fallen from favour by then. The male names Elmer, Adolph, Mortimer, Herman, and Wilbur had as well, more or less (Mortimer definitely had by that time and Hitler discouraged Adolph's usage without a doubt), whereas Arthur, Harold, Walter, Frank, Leonard, Albert, and Ralph were still quite popular in the 1950s."
