Could the "i" in Francis actually be an "e"....Frances is the feminine version of Francis.

One of the ancestors I am looking for is written on documents as "Francis" and even in one case as "Fanny". Family oral history has her name as Franceska. I am guessing it might have actually been "Franciska". She and her family spoke Slovak, does anyone think that would lead more strongly to one version of the name or another?
