Overheard a name today...

Probably a little TMI, but... I was in a public restroom today when I overheard a mother chastising her fussy toddler, Franklin. I exited the stall to find a woman with two absolutely beautiful little girls. That's right. Franklin was a girl. Thought some of you might appreciate that one. ;-)

  • One of my niece's multiple middle names is Frankie. It's not short for Francis or Francine or anything at all... It's legit... Frankie. Poor girl has three middle names. Her first, second, and fourth name are all male names... These poor kids, man...

    I was also excited over Franklin...until I finished reading X_X
  • Awh :( I was expecting a little boy Franklin too
  • Aww Franklin is such a cute name for a little boy! I don't understand giving a girl a name that masculine. At least if you name her Frances you can call her Frankie but she has options when she gets older.

    Well, I didn't think to ask. Maybe that's it. That would make it all better!  8-}   ;)

    I'd guess there's a 90% chance on that one. I mean if it ends in "lynn" that totally makes it a girl's name, right?

  • We have a friend "Frankie" short for Francesca...I also like the name Franklin (for a boy) but hate the nn "Frank" which is why that and so many other names are out for us...finding a name for this little man is driving me crazy.

  • Definitely a let down. I love Franklin/Frank on a boy.
