I'm jumping in and saying that I'm not overly fond of any of those names. There should have at least been something beginning with 'A'! :lol:
I would have loved something like 'Ace', 'Andy', 'Aloe'(! as in hello), 'Abe', 'Alice' ...... I could go on, but won't! :lol:
As it is, given the limited suggestions, I would vote for Frank!

If I had my druthers (what is a druther anyway?) I'd be voting again...for Timjuarando.....but then Timjuarando's not on the list...but it should be. Really.....serious....but awfully glad to see good support behind FRANK and FERNANDO!!!!!!!

Oh...and did you know spellcheck does not underline druthers but it underlines druther and spellcheck?

Kawfully bored or something!LOL

Avacado's are asexual. We need a male/female name like Francis/Frances Lesley/Leslie or Ashley.... Did you know Ashley was originally a male name?
