Franklin


Learn about the name Franklin.

Speaking of Roosevelts! Franklin D. Roosevelt, our nation's 32nd president, was Teddy Roosevelt's fifth cousin. FDR helped the U.S. climb out of the Great Depression, created the Social Security Administration, and ruled the Oval Office for an unprecedented 12 years before succumbing to health problems in 1945. The first name Franklin has been in steady decline since the early 1900s, but that's what happens before a neat old name has a resurgence. Frankie, in particular, has a trendy ring to it as an up-and-coming girls' name.
