It's my nephew's name. He's generally known as Frankie. Nowt wrong with it

Makes me think of FDR, or the ghastly Franklin Graham (of Samaratins Purse).

Not for us!

It's my son's name! Only 4 months old so can't tell you what he thinks, but we have had nowt but positive comments. We call him frankie or frankels, but he could also use fin or flynn if he wants to. It does sound like a surname or an American name (and there were two presidents with this as a first name) but it is actually an old English name meaning free man. Obviously i'm biased, but i say if you like it go for it!

It's my DS's middle name, I love it!

I've already planned that if we choose Franklin I will call him Frankie 'Franklin' will be put on the birth certificate

I quite like it. Although not hugely keen on 'Frank', which he'd probably get called. Although I guess you could push for another nn (Fran? Frankie?)

Not keen I'm afraid. Frank okay, though not my cup of tea. Franklin

Thanx, dp suggested it last night at first I was like no!! But the more I think about it the more it's growing on me, still not sure yet!

No, sorry. It's a surname - and it's the man who ate his boots, and whose men almost certainly had to become cannibals too, if that bothers you at all!

On the list for this one if its a boy. Love it!
