Hi Jennifer

My maternal grandfather's name was Odysseas, but when he came to the United States, he changed his name to Frank. On my father's side he had an uncle named Frank. I am not sure that there is a direct correlation between the name Frank and any particular Greek name. I always assumed that my grandfather chose the name Frank so that he could fit in with other nationalities in his business, but to be honest with you, I really don't know.

Good luck with your Greek family history research.
