Francesca most likely derives from the Old Germanic word franko, which was a term used to describe “Frenchman.” As a variation of the Italian Francis, Francesca also translates to "free," paving the way for innumerable shades of individuality. Francesca bears a striking similarity to the faithful followers of St. Francis of Assisi—the Franciscans—who dedicated themselves to a life of humility and a love for all entities. Name for the patron saint of animals, Francesca is a beautiful appellation to celebrate easy living and an open mind. A name akin to a breath of fresh air.
