  • I liked the name til I read you have a son named Franklin. I am sorry but I think they will get teased for "copying" the Roosevelts. I personally wouldnt do it

  • OP... I recognized it RIGHT away and I am not very good at history, or presidents or that kinda thing:( so to me, its obvious. What about going with a different presidents first name? Well I mean a president with a different last name!

  • lol. well i don't really like the names because they are president's names... i liked both franklin and theodore when i was pregnant with my son. there aren't many names i do like. i like lewis but my husband thinks it is so nerdy. i said and you don't think the name franklin is nerdy? he said not nearly as nerdy as lewis... soo... well i still have to go through a name book or something so maybe a new option will come up after that. ;)
