Cool name. I believe it can also be short for Francesca.

Fran can also be short for Francine. The actress Fran Drescher's real name is Francine, not Frances.

In response to what CharlieRob and Surreal said, Francesca and Francine are variants of Frances in different languages, so of course the name could be short for those names. I believe that only Frances is listed because it is the English version of the name, and this site is written in the English language.
