Think you know what your name means? I used to think I knew mine. But I was wrong...

FRANK: Literal meaning: "Keep refrigerated, eat within three days."

History:
Created by Act of God exactly three hundred years ago next week, the name Frank was originally used spitefully to refer to warriors who died during drill practice, before eating a big cream cake.

Famous Franks:
1. Frank ap Oily-Oaf, of the generation which fondly remembers those funny pirate hats; ghost-writer of Oscar Wilde's neighbour, Tom's offensively illustrated autobiography, I WAS MONTY'S THUG;
2. Frank Frewsy, belittler of bungee-jumping; first holder of the office of Royal Gadget-Smasher;
3. Frank Proms, populariser of the methods of Judge Dredd; ghost-writer of The St Winifred's School Choir's leatherwear catalogue and autobiography, TOOT-A-TWANG-TWANG;
4. Doctor Frank Dots, who's never forgotten the deckchair-cum-hat;
5. Frank S'Ess-Nootlooter, aroused by a popular music band made entirely of soap;
6. Frank Jesus ("The Uncanny"), once saved by the definitive manual on drowning; ghost-writer of Charles Hawtrey's religious handbook and autobiography, I LOVE MY FROG!;
7. Frank Marl ("The Terrible"), haunted by an image of some thing or other;
8. Frank Staplegun ("The Blue"), champion of the right to use between nine and fifteen scientific principles; first holder of the office of Queen's Own Loan Shark;
9. Lady The Miss Frank Macaulay, first victim of Britain's standards;
10. Frank Frote-Lilly Li, who lost a fortune on Spandau Ballet.

Typical Frank motto:
"A week is a long time on fire."
