Other Origin(s):German
Meaning:Of France, belonging to the Franks; Javelin, spear
A short form of the lofty Latin Franciscus, Franc is a masculine name and alternative form of Frank, meaning “of France” or “belonging to the Franks.” This name stems from the German frankô, lending Franc the badass definition of “javelin” or “spear,” too. In English, being “frank” means to be open and honest—to express oneself authentically. If your little cherub is an open book who loves shining light on the truth, then you’ll know you chose right with smooth yet sharp Franc.
