I don't think Kjellfrid is popular. I have never heard of it before and it is not among the top 100 Norwegian names.

Actually, when I looked at it, I did not even know whether it was male or female. Sigfrid is male, Ragnfrid is female so it is not easy.

The male Kjell is used in Sweden too and we pronounce it somewhat like "chell". And "frid" is pronounced as it looks or like "freed".
