Celebrity Baby Names: Drew Barrymore’s New Daughter

Congratulations to Drew Barrymore and her husband Will Kopelman, who just welcomed girl #2. Joining big sister Olive is Frankie Barrymore Kopelman.

Frankie is a more casual nickname for name-on-the-rise Frances (or the more Italian Francesca) which means, “free man.” Actresses Amanda Peet and Mia Farrow and rocker Nikki Sixx also used Frankie for their daughters, either as the formal name or as a nickname, though traditionally, Frankie’s been more often in the boys’ column name wise.

I’d probably pair Frances/Frankie with something fun and a little more feminine in the middle spot. I like Ramona, Jane, Belle or Charlotte.

Olive and Frankie seem like a cute sibling set, don’t you think?

What do you think of the name Frankie? Would you go for the nickname or a more formal version, like Frances or Francesca?
