Origin: (Latin, Italian)
Pronunciation: (fran-CHEHS-k-ə , fran-CHESS-kah)
I was watching Mrs. Eastwood and Company a T.V series following Clint Eastwoods wife and daughters. One of his daughters is name Francesca and in the past I have seen and heard this name a few times. There is a store at the mall near where I live that is named Francesca's. The meanings are pretty and the story about the 13th Century Francesca reminds me of the another story Tristan and Isolde which is like a British version similar in many ways to this tragedy.
