Hmm. No one has counted Franz Kafka yet.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) was a German-speaking Czech writer known for his bizarre writing style of complexity and inexplicable events. He gave his name to the adjective Kafkaesque, or marked by menacing complexity.

Kafka comes to mind whenever I hear this name, who also happens to be my favorite German-language author (although he was a Czech Jew). I would expect a Franz to be one of those people who can't be really talked about without pulling up Kafka, or something Kafkaesque.

(Kafkaesque is a term describing a confusingly complex situation, often involving surrealism and undefinable danger.)

Hahaha, I assumed 'Franz' was a French name because it sounds like how a French person would say France.

Fr-aw-Nz instead of Fran-ce.

My first ancestor of my name (which is German) was called Franzis,
I suppose it derives from Franz but am not quite sure.
