[name]Do[/name] you think [name]Frank[/name] is usable these days? I quite like it and I think [name]Frankie[/name] is an adorable nickname. Is this too outdated (in comparison to vintage or old fashioned) to be usable?

If parents are using [name]Will[/name], [name]Jack[/name], [name]Ben[/name] and [name]Sam[/name] today, why not [name]Frank[/name]? Although I love [name]Francis[/name] and [name]Franklin[/name], I do think [name]Frank[/name] is usable on its own! I love the friendliness, approachability, simplicity, familiarity and even the meaning of the name. I would love to meet siblings named [name]Frank[/name], [name]Gus[/name] and [name]Nate[/name]. :smiley:

Yay! I agree on all counts. I;m definitely into the vintage nickname trend. I would love [name]Franklin[/name], though, too - but I also love [name]Edison[/name], and [name]Franklin[/name] and [name]Edison[/name] might be a tad much for brothers lol.

I like it and actually know a little 2 yr old [name]Frank[/name], a twin to [name]John[/name]. I think it’s very cute and wearable.

I agree. I think [name]Frank[/name] is usable!

I definitely think [name]Frank[/name] is usable. I know I’d love to meet a little [name]Frank[/name]. :slight_smile:

I think [name]Frank[/name] is pretty bad!

[name]Franklin[/name] has been in the top 5 for both our boys. The only reason we didn’t use it is because I really wanted family names. My brother, sister, and mother all loved the name and want us to have another boy so we can use it! [name]Frank[/name] is great - go for it!

The first thing my DH said to me when he walked through the door after work this evening was, “I’ve been thinking that I really like the name [name]Frank[/name]. It’s kind of a virtue name but without being so heavy-handed about it.”
