opinions please. we only have 4 weeks to go!!
DH boycotted francis as apparently it's "gay". I know I know, but he hates the name. I love the nn frank / Frankie and saw Franklin mentioned.
Franklin George.
What do you think?

Love it. But I'm biased.

The only Franklin I know of is Billy Graham's son and is a right wing, bigoted, homophobe
I suppose it has the advantage of not being gay hmm but no, I don't like it! Sorry!

What an obscure one to know of! I only knew of Franklin D. Roosevelt

Love the name Franklin

Franklin not Franklyn. The y is unnecessary.

Really like Franklin spelt without the y.

Yeah, a bit obscure! Sorry, should have said he is the only relatively modern one! Think it is all the OCC threads, he just makes my skin crawl!

Love it. My DS is James Franklin. It's a family name on his dads side (he's American) and tbh I wasn't keen to begin with but love it now.

Didn't like it at first and then I read this and now I think it's pretty cool.

Definitely Frankl*i*n, not Franklyn.

Franklin is lovely name. I'm biased as it is DS2's name.

Spell it with the i though. My HV put it down with a y and I'm constantly having to correct things from the doctors, have no idea why she would assume a y spelling confused

Franklinstein.. Sorry.

Franklin! Hate when people try to be different and change a later!

i agree frankl*i*n.
TBH I wasn't 100% sure of the proper spelling but Franklin definitely seems better.
Might well be finally decided!
