I'm Frances and I like my name, but I hate it when people think I'm a guy and spell it with an I- I'm pretty sure that any other Frances (when'the name Isn't popular) has had this experience! I'm 12, so it Isn't just old people who have this name, though I AM named after my great-aunt..

I love my name...and tend to correct people who spell it with a I, since that is usually used for men named Francis. Although I have a namesake...and they used a I! That's ok. I am named after my father who was Frank. I never met a Frances that I didn't like, and there aren't many who I have met. There is a Frances buried close to my father.

My name is Frances and I absolutely love it. I'll be honest and say that I wasn't thrilled about it when I was a kid and attended school with all the Jennies, Stephanies and Britannys, but now I really appreciate the uniqueness of the name.

They still think I'm a female. When at Doctors office they look confused when only Im the only one in the office. I just smile.

Only older woman here are called Frances. Nicknames tend to be Fran,Franny,Francie,Fancy.

I never liked it. It doesn't have a ring with my last name. I hated it more when I found out my father named me.(another'story). I don't mind being called Fran, Francie,even Francine but DON'T CALL ME Frannie. When I was a kid I got 'Francis the talking mule' from the movie.

My older'sister's name is Frances. She is like her name: unique and old-fashioned. Now she is a grandmother and have six grandchildren and they cal her Granny Franny. But no one else calls her other way than Frances. No diminutives, no other forms, she's just a Frances for all the people besides her grandchildren. And no one calls her Francis.

The reason the 'older' generation has no idea what you are saying is that "Jaylen" is not a name.

I'm a Frances and I love my name...until it gets shortened to Fran, Fan, Francie, Fannie, Frannie, Frankie, or any other corruption. And yes, it is often misspelled with an "i". I thought I was the only one with that name until I became an adult. Then'there were two other where I worked, and three othe's in my club!

I'm 17 and I live my name, although I do have It'shortened most of the time to Fran. However this is mainly because my best friends name is also Frances and we have been friends since we were four and our birthdays are actually around two weeks apart. We also found it weird how of all the people in our area we two of the'same name ended up going to the'same school and being the bestest of friends! Although I will admit that when I'meet people (even if they don't know my best friend) I tell them my name is 'Fran', mainly because I'm so used to that name now I suppose.

I am a Frances too. I hated my name growing up. It was an old persons name and not pretty. I wanted to be called Abigale but I wasn't allowed to change my name. It didn't help that my middle names are Norma Louise! I have now excepted and grow into it.

I'm Frances and i love my name. Not man people have that name and you cant ever get mixed up with sum1 else:D

1/1/2022 5:11:42 AM

I dont here of many people called Frances, think that it is a lovely name for a little girl, also sounds good for a grown up. Its a classic, very tasteful. UK)

My name is Frances and I think it is a very pretty name,but 90 percent of the people spell it like a boys name. I hate it when some people pronounce it Franches and I quickly correct them. I love my name and think it is pretty because my mother'said I was a beautiful baby and deserved a beautiful name.

My grandma's name was Frances and I would name a daughter Frances if I have one. I like family names because whether It's popular or unpopular, it doesn't matter!

9/16/2021 3:46:12 PM

My name's Frances. i've never really liked it much. Everyone calls me Fran, which I kind of like. Some people call me Frankie, like all my best friends. Which I love a lot. I wish people would call me Frankie more often! It really annoys me when people spell it with an "i" like a boys' name. But luckily it doesn't happen very often! :)

9/9/2021 10:50:06 AM

Frances is my name and lots of people call me Fran and Frannie but what I hate the most is Francie or Francine I HATE it. And I also hate when people spell it the boy way Francis but besides that I really like my name its tomboyish and I hang out with boys most of my time so I like it.
