Francisco Pizarro was a Spanish conquistador who helped conquer the Incan Empire, but for some reason I kept mixing his name with Vasco de Gama's and got Francisco de Gama. (Which sounds pretty cool, if you ask me. Any de Gamas out there need a baby name?)

This is my boyfriend's name and I absolutely love it. It's very masculine and powerful. It's also easy to pronounce.

Reminds me of the movie Elf when Buddy meets a guy named Francisco and he's flipping through the pages of a book going "Francisco, Francisco," :D.

I think that this is becoming a less and less popular name within Spanish society. This is just a guess from a football fan, but I've seen players named Francisco go by Isco, Paco, Juanfran, etc.: not by their given name Francisco though. Maybe it has something to do with Francisco Franco?

My father and great grandfather both have this name though my dad shortens it to Frank which bothers my grandmother to no end. She finds the name perfect just the way it is and doesn't see why he would want to shorten it. My father keeps telling me he would love me to name a son after him one day. I do love how this name sounds but I always have problems trying to remember how to spell it. So yeah I really do love this name and most likely use it as a middle name if I ever have a son.
