Frakeen /frækín/ (male)
This name may sound vaguely foreign to North American ears, but good luck figuring out from which country it hails! Since the name swept the globe in 2009, many experts have tried their hand at tracing the lineage of this ubiquitous gem only to see their efforts inevitably end in frustration. Here at World’s Best Baby Names, we’re happy to let the name’s origins remain shrouded in mystery. In fact, we think the mystery is half the fun! Even if this wasn’t the case, however, this would still be a snappy name with a modern slingshot structure to please even the pickiest parent.
