Hi, DH and I like the name Francesca but dislike Fran as a nn - a lot! Has anyone come across any nice nn's for a Francesca?

So far I have seen Frankie, Chesca and Chess/ie

I have a Francesca and she is mainly known as either Francesca or Cesca. I really dislike Frantoo but no one has ever called her that yet. The closest we had was her being called Frannie when she was a baby by some people we met on holiday. It sounded cute in an American accent so we let it slide grin

Have you ever seen Black Books?

There's an episode where Fran meets up with an old flame who has a gorgeous voice.

The way he says Fran will change your mind, absolutely!
