Frank is not the right name for a little boy. It makes me think of an old grandad hobbling around with a walking stick.

Frank is in the same family as names such as Henry, Frederick, and George. All classy and sophisticated names in my opinion. I'm tired of the fluffy names that have been so popular the past 5-8 years. It would be refreshing to see baby boys with good strong names.

"So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright" is a song by Simon and Garfunkel. It appeared on their album Bridge Over Troubled Water (released in 1970)--very fitting, since the song is a veiled goodbye to Art Garfunkel from Paul Simon, and Bridge Over Troubled Water was their final album of new material.

The tribe of the Franks as mentioned did not only settle in what is called France / Netherlands (this was West Franken) but also in nowadays southern Germany (this was Ost [= East] Franken).

There is still a German region called Franken with its regional capital city of Nuremberg. The Franks of today do not like to be called Bavarians, even if they live in the federal state of Bavaria.

I really like this name. It sounds very dignified and intelligent. I have a friend with this name who is around my age. I've known a number of other young guys named Frank, so I don't see it as old-fashioned at all. And I think Frank is better as a full name than as a nickname; if anything it's long been more common than Francis.

I see absolutely nothing wrong with naming your little boy Frank, or Franklin, or Francis. I personally would really respect a parent who chose to give their son a name like this, especially in modern times with all these ridiculous and irritating names being given to children. Frankie makes an adorable nickname, too! It's really quite sad how all of these classic names have been dropping lower and lower in the charts. If you're considering naming your son Frank/Franklin/Francis, I say go for it! :)

My father, the son of Italian immigrants, was named Francesco at birth, but has gone by Frank since he was a kid. I know a lot of people consider the name 'middle aged', but I think it's adorable. It reminds me of my father, one of the sweetest and most hardworking men I've ever met. My sister named her son Frank after our dad in 2007, but I would've probably given the name to my first son if she hadn't beat me to it. My nephew goes by Frankie, which could be one of the cutest nicknames ever :) and when the time comes, he'll have a mature and classic name to go by, unlike many of his peers. I think this name is definitely due for a revival!

Frank was my Grandfather's first name and is my brothers middle name. While some may say it's old fashioned, if I have a son I wouldn't hesitate to give him this name. I think it's a strong name, that unlike some of these strange 'modern' names will suit as well when they are an adult as a child, (though as a child would probably call him Frankie more often than not).
-- Kimbo_anna  8/24/2013
Grandma's middle name was Frances and her brother's first name was Francis (he went by franny) he named his first son eugene francis which happens to be a fave cousin of mine. I gave birth to twins and named one Francis Eugene and the other Dahlton Edward. I want my boy to go by Frankie as a kid and Frank as an adult. It is so strong and versatile! I hope he loves his name, I have been trying to find out how men named Frank feel about their name. Any Franks out there I would love to hear your opinions.
