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