Top 100 baby names number 54
I thought it would be fun to look at the top 100 boys and girls names from last year. I am doing a series on these with their meanings. Enjoy!
Today we have numbers 54 - Luna and Frankie.
This name comes from the Latin for 'moon' and has been popular in Spain and Italy for years before making its way to the UK.
Frankie (Old High German)
Frankie, from Frank, comes from the name of a Germanic tribe in the Lower and Middle Rhine, which eventually came to rule an empire covering much of Western Europe. Frank came to mean 'free' (as opposed to enslaved), which lead to the English adjective 'frank' meaning free, honest, open, clear, or generous.
