Not baby related so I hope it's okay but name related. For work related reasons I am having to choose between using the first names

Frankie or Duffy

My surname is a common colour

My family always call me Duffy but I'm not sure which to use. I have to use it on things I'm writing.

Any thoughts welcome (I should add I'm a girl not a guy)

Frankie. Duffy sounds a bit...made up, whereas Frankie sounds short for something like Francesca or Frances.

I agree, Frankie is better but WHY OP???? Are you in MI5? I must know!

Yes, Frankie, but we need more info op! This is too intriguing!

I suppose it depends which you feel more like.... a Duffy or a Frankie. (Not particularly helpful, sorry). For what it's worth, I quite like Duffy, reminds me of Casualty.

M15 I bet. Ha ha.

I wish it were as exciting as being in MI5 and not the boring reason it really is...

I'm doing some work for an agency who has someone on their books with the same name as me so I've got to use a different one. I've used my middle name Frankie and my family nickname Duffy for various pieces of work and I need to be able to use some in a portfolio hence the restricted choice.

I'd love to work for MI5 though (just in case they are reading this) q

Duffy - I'm choosing this for no other reason other than it is because the majority are picking Frankiegrin

Frankie..only because my last name is Duffy

How intriguing! Are you a hair stylist, they often have to have a stage name.

I prefer Frankie but if you're already known to people as Duffy then it makes sense to go with that. And I do like Stephen Duffy.
