Good point, I'd guessed you'd have already searched but thought it worth a mention.

I've just read today's email newsletter from the WDYTYA magazine site, and I'm pleased to see that not only have you posted your query there, but you've already had some positive responses, so continued good luck with that !


You ask about the meanings of the names Franz and Fritz,
Franz is a common German or Austrian equivalent of our Francis, it's apparently associated with a male who is "attractive. suave, talented". Francis means "of France", and was originally a nickname of St Francis of Assisi.

Fritz is a pet form of Friedrich, or our Frederick. This is derived from the Old High German Fridurih (ruler of peace), a compound name composed of the elements frid (peace) and rik (king, ruler).
