    What does your name say about you?

    Frankly, i'm just Frank


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     FDMattioli says he's not a huge fan of Frank Zappa's music but he likes his penchant for odd behavior, which is another trait he shares with the famous musician.
    - mannynyc, CNN iReport producer

    Personally, i love my name. I am 21 years old, male, a music industry student, and i have some extremely radical views and i like to be creative. I like to be honest with people but not brutally honest, constructively honest. I like to do things that may seem obscure to others and i'm totally open about it. I am named after an amazing musician Frank Zappa and he was a pretty odd dude himself. My dad has a poster of him sitting on a toilet in his office, i'm not that out of the ordinary but i'm strange in my own way. My name is a big part of my identity and for better or for worse it will stay that way. I find, most of the time, it brings a good impression upon people. I feel it sounds sophisticated and welcoming. It's a common name...that you don't hear often. So it's almost nostalgic and comforting. I'll be Frank with you, i love my name
