If this is actually a real name?

Was browsing on another name forum and someone posted "Fraisine" which they said means "little strawberry" but it doesn't even seem to come up on google search as a word

Can anyone help me please, is this just made up?

Yes I can't find anything either. Maybe they misheard Francine and made Fraisine up? But why would you want to call your kid little strawberry? Sounds like raisin.

Apparently Fraisine was used in the 19th century. It sounds quite feminine and nice to my ears, not too different to Clementine.

haha Bendydick it was on a list of other french names and I just thought it looked interesting smile

Thank you for having a look, Pipilang, does it say anything else at all?

It does look interesting! Good point about Clementine, I suppose it's no different to that is it. Fraisine. Fraisine... I still mainly see 'raisin'! grin

It makes me think of fromage frais grin

Fraisine is a French surname. I did find that a French couple had it as a second choice for their DD but a French court banned them from using it

Their first choice was Nutella 😐

Thank you Amalfimamma! Think that's enough to put me off it grin
