Personal Impression
A total "mean girl" name. It doesn't help that it actually rhymes with "mean." And it also has a harsh sound to it. Not a good choice.

A sweet, feminine name that rolls off the tongue nicely and isn't overused. It also sounds good on all age groups. You can't go wrong with Francine.

Classy and underused, Francine manages to be both strong and elegant. It works easily in English-speaking countries whilst retaining the whiff of the European. An unusual alternative to Frances, Francesca or Françoise, it travels well: the late Princess Francine of Montenegro was born in Morocco.

This is a nice name, I can picture a cute little girl with it, but one of the characters on the children's TV program 'Arthur' is named Francine, so I would never name my daughter Francine. Also, I feel like it would be more accepted if you were European.

Francine Hughes, the woman who set a fire that killed her extremely abusive husband, and was exonerated. A feminist heroine to some.

I'm going to give this name to my daughter because it sounds so sophisticated and isn't being overused. This name also is flexible because it can be shortened to Fran. Most people in my families, including myself, have sophisticated or/and rare names so I gotta pass it on!

After some researches, I found out that "Fran" comes from the Teutonic and the meaning is "Free", although Francine is a French/English name, but the meaning is the same.
