Frances Given Name Meaning & History

GENDER: Feminine, USAGE: English, PRONOUNCED: FRAN-sis. Feminine form of FRANCIS. The distinction between Francis as a masculine name and Frances as a feminine name did not arise until the 17th century. A notable bearer was Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini (1850-1917), a social worker and the first American to be canonized. Origin Latin: From France, free one; feminine form of Francis. — This name derives from the Medieval Latin “Francus / Franciscus”, meaning “Franco, belonging to the people of the Franks”. In turn, the name derives from the Germanic “*frankô / *franka”, meaning “javelin, spear”. Ultimately the name is a derivative of the Proto-Germanic “*sahsą”, meaning “knife, dagger”.

Franks, in medieval times, were the only people to enjoy the rights of free citizens, the term “frank” taking the meaning of “free man, sincere or truthful”. The term was then associated with the proper name since the ninth century. Originally it refers to a Germanic people, who derived their tribal name from the type of axe they used. The Francisca (or Francesca) is a throwing axe used as a weapon during the Early Middle Ages by the Franks, among whom it was a characteristic national weapon at the time of the Merovingians from about 500 to 750 and is known to have been used during the reign of Charlemagne (768–814).
