Frankie, the "free" man ...
Frankie is a loving variant of the first name Frank. It derives from the German tribal name of the Franks. In the early medieval Frankish Empire, the status of being «a Frank» became synonymous with that of a free man.
Well. And whoever is free, hopefully enjoys life, perhaps with some music? The Fiddle-leaf plant looked most likely to fulfil this task, for its leaves look like violins. Besides, it has that certain something that made it one of the most popular plants. The motto of men’s plant Frankie: «Have a good time».
Well-known namesakes are: singer and actor Frank Sinatra; rock musician Frank Zappa; architect Frank Lloyd Wright; and the band Frankie Goes to Hollywood.
