To be honest, it’s not surprising that Frank has taken a nosedive in popularity. Except for singer Frank Ocean and when Michael Bublé introduces a Frank Sinatra cover, you don’t hear many mentions of the name these days. But that could change if parents get tired of other monosyllabic, oldie names, like Sam and Jack, and want a friendly and unpretentious name instead. Frank was derived from a type of spear used by Germanic tribes in medieval times, which means this name is sharp.
