I think it would be cruel to call a girl Frankie.

I think that it would be wonderful to call a girl Frankie. What a beautiful name for a girl! I can not think of a more beautiful name for a girl.

There's a little girl I know named Frankie, but my friend calls her "Franklin!" I think Franklin can be a girl's name if you spell it FRANK-L-Y-N-N-E.

Yeah, it could be possible to name a girl Franklynne, but I think it would be pretty to spell it Franqueline. :D

I think that this is a perfect name if you wanted the Frank name to run in your family. My Grandad (Frank) and I were very close. He died 10 years ago and I think this name would be such a lovely name to include when/if I have a daughter. This will keep the name of my grandad going and it isn't an old fashioned name.

My husband's name is Frankey and I think it's a strong and respectable name, although when you think of Frankey you probably think old old man but not me, I think young sexy marine who kicks butt, I think of my husband. He is a third generation Frank so he has that going for him too.

What a name! I'm from India, and there 'Frankie' means a mixture of vegetables and spices stuffed in a chapati (pancake).

Frankie Wilde was a famous deaf DJ, which he recorded the best tracks. :)

I love the name Frankie for a girl - when I think Frankie, I think a strong, independent, smart, but beautiful tomboy. Although if I had a daughter, I would probably use Francine, with the option of Frankie as a nickname, because the tomboy connotation might clash with a girly-girl.

This name is a nice nickname for Francesa. But ONLY a nickname, but not a real name.
jasmineenimsaj  2/14/2008
I hate this nickname on girls. They should go by Fran, Franny, or Francie, not this boyish nickname. The nickname is too immature for guys past the age of 15, so Frank is much better.

This name belongs to Frankie Foster, a character from the TV show, Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, which airs on Cartoon Network.

I am a girl, and Frankie is my name. No, it's not my nickname. (Almost everyone asks me if it is. XD) It's my real name and I'm very proud of having it as my name. I think it's rather unique for a girl, you know? :3

A famous bearer of this name is the actor Frankie Muniz.

I just love this name. Great for a boy or girl. Totally, do not agree with bean from India.
― Anonymous User  8/16/2009
I've never really liked this name to begin with, and I just cannot imagine it on a girl; unless she's a tomboy, it sounds too rough, too masculine. As a nickname, fine, but a given name it's just very butch.

What's wrong with Francine, Françoise, and Francie?
gaelruadh19  11/24/2010
I really like Frankie as a nick-name, although whenever I hear this name, I either think of a teenager wearing a fedora and smoking a cigar or an older guy behind a desk... Too much Godfather, I suppose :)

I'm kind of surprised- no one mentioned Francis 'Frank/Frankie' Sinatra I don't think. :3

The nickname Frankie makes me think of a little boy with shaggy hair and a shark tooth necklace... or Frankie Heck, the mother on The Middle.

Frankie was the name of the second youngest of the sisters (second youngest of the five biological sisters, but youngest of the four main sisters) in the television series Sisters.

I think Frankie is a wonderful name :)
Actually my older sister is named Franki (no "E"), and it suits her perfectly, even though she's a "girly-girl" it fits because it's cute. Just like her!
rydia_ff4  10/21/2011
It's okay, but it is a bit chavvy... especially for a girl. It sounds tomboyish too.
― Anonymous User  2/6/2012
As much as I like the name Frank, I don't care for this nickname. My unfortunate experience with a man who went by this makes it hard for me to picture it on a boy, but it sounds even worse on a girl. Whoever decided that Frankie was a girls' nickname must have been nuts.

'Minding Frankie' was the last novel that Maeve Binchy wrote. Frankie is a baby girl that is born towards the beginning of the story. Her first name is actually Frances.

My friend uses this as a nickname for Francesca. It's also my cousin's dog's name... I think Frankie is a cute nickname for Francis, Franklin, frank, or Francesca, but not very good for a given name.

One of Chris Wolstenholme's (Muse bassist) sons is called Frankie. I don't know if it's his real name or a nickname for Frank, though.
― Anonymous User  5/23/2013
It irritates me quite a bit that this is more popular than both Frank and Francis in the UK, not to mention used as a full name for girls.

My name is Frankie and I'm a girl. I love it as a name, its different and unique. I was named after my father cause he wanted a girl ( I have 2 older brothers). Most people remember my name right away 'cause its so different from other girls names. I was a tom boy younger and the name suit me well. Now, 16, it goes along just as good. People always remembered me because of my name. People always think Frankie is a nickname for Francis, Francesca, or fransica.

American actress and model Drew Barrymore welcomed her second child into the world today, a girl named Frankie. I don't think it's short for anything.

I think it is a great name for either a boy or a girl. I think it is fine as a given name or as a nickname.
heatherfeather  11/7/2014
To all those with a negative bias to the name Frankie as a girl's name. I'm reading that it sounds too "tomboy-ish", or it would make a "cute nickname but not a real name". You are all SO lucky to have me as your personal, anti-Frankie's-Not-a-Girl's-Name, Myth and Propaganda Buster.
My name is Frankie. Yes, Frankie. Not Francine, Frances, nor Francios. It is Frankie, and yes, I am FEMALE. I was named after my grandma AND my grandpa. To all you scornful haters, my middle name is Jo. So stick that in your pipe... So my name is a double masculine given name, to which, did I mention, I am PROFOUNDLY AND GRATEFULLY PROUD.
Let me describe characteristics of a real Frankie. I am unique, I am intelligent; with an I.Q. of 168. I am NOT a tomboy, however I am adventurous, I am funny with a great sense of humor, and I am ADORABLE, with beautiful red hair, sparkling gold eyes, and an infectious smile. I am a leader, not a follower, however I acknowledge someone other than myself may be better for the job than myself and will follow them. I have an even temper. I am an optimist, I am a dreamer, I am a conservationist, I believe in Obamacare.
I am a female named Frankie Jo.

For boys it's a good nickname but as an independent name it's ehh.
For girls it's an OK nickname but only for a young girl, once they get into adulthood they'll probably rather go by Fran or Frannie/Franny, but as an independent for a girl no way, and the same goes for Ricki.

I'm a female with the given name of Frankie Lynn, named after my father Franklin. I enjoy having a unique name.
shaw95  11/15/2015
My name is Frankie and I was named after a song called Frankie. I am proud of my name. I think it's a great name for a boy or a girl and I think it's good to have a unique name because it makes you stand out.

Frances "Frankie" Heck (née Spence) is the protagonist and narrator of the American sitcom The Middle.

I love this name for a girl! I think it's sooo cute and I wish it was my name.
I like this name for a boy too. It makes me think of my friend's dog and Frank Iero from My Chemical Romance; one of my favourite bands.
Livisnotonfire  11/17/2017
I am a male. Sometimes it stinks to have the name Frankie because 2/3 of people spell it wrong. Franky, I think it is a feminine name and Frankie is a masculine name.
