My name is Francisca and for a really long time I didn't like my name and just couldn't stand to hear it. But now I am truly in love with it and wouldn't change it!

Francisca, Francisca, hmm...? I think this name is a charming Hispanic version of its Anglophone cousin, Frances. I like the way it returns a sweet melodic tune that commences on a gentle note and concludes with a strong ending sound. A good name that will offer delight and many felicitous occasions for the bearer of this name.

This name is also used in The Netherlands, where it is a firm top 1000 name (for all ages). It was used most often between 1945 and 1968 (with 522 births in 1946 being the highest number), after which the name slowly declined in popularity. There were only 7 Franciscas born in 2011.

The Dutch pronunciation of this name is: frahn-SIS-kah.

A lovely name. Better than Frances or Frannie. And I think Frankie would actually be a nice nickname, although Frankie as a formal name is unacceptable.

Although I love this name. I don't like the nicknames Franky or Fran. They take all the beauty and grace out of the name. I think I'd go with Essie or Shessie - maybe even Cheska.
