Francisco is a ♂ male name.
Francisco is a Spanish and Portuguese variant of the Franciscus and is of French origin. The Italian Saint Francis of Assisi was originally named Giovanni, but after a journey to France, his father gave him the name Francesco. This is the origin of the Latin name Franciscus and the Spanish and Portuguese form Francisco.
Francisco means “Frenchman”, “little Frenchman” (from Italian Francesco, originally from the Germanic tribe of the Franks) or “free man” (from Old French “franc” = free).
