To my knowledge, it is becasue of how they lay. Both front and back paws fully extened... they look like a frog.

I think it could be because French people are called frogs. There are several reasons on the net as to why they are call frogs. Which one is right, I do not know.

OK thanks, I had heard that too, but didn't know if it was true. Frog legs are good too.
