This is my name. Many people think it has astrological meaning but it means "the divine power of god". I am a very strong minded person.

Astrid Lindgren is a wonderful writer of children's books, the most famous of which is Pippi Longstocking (but the best, in my opinion, is Saltkrokan - Seacrow Island).

This name is very pretty. I will name my children this name.

This is my mother's name and to me it's a very strong and beautiful name. It's also the name of one of my teachers. I'd like to use it one day because they are both very strong women who I admire.

Astrid Kirchherr is the artist and photographer who got to know The Beatles during their time in Hamburg. She took the famous photographs of them there, styled their hair in the "moptop" hairstyle and designed their collarless suits. She also dated Stuart Sutcliffe, at that time a member of The Beatles.

Astrid grew on my from the first time I saw it in a naming book. Then after reading a book with a heroine named Astrid it grew in me even more. From another source I heard that Astrid is Greek for "star". I can't confirm it but I do like the idea of it meaning "star". To me it looks like Astrid could come from the word "astroid" even.

It's getting to be a rather popular name in Denmark. I like this name because it's a little more special and interesting than...let's say Emma (I believe it's the most popular name in Denmark right at the moment). No offence, Emma's around the world!
-- CB_DK  6/2/2006
Astrid's a cute name, and it's different, which is great. :D
-- Surreal  9/24/2006
It's spelled differently but we could also consider the delightful Brazilian vocalist, Astrud Gilberto, as being associated with this name.
-- Anonymous User  3/31/2007
The pronunciation depends on the area. In Norway the d is silent (like in Ingrid and other related names), and it's pronounced more or less AH-stri ['astrý].
-- Silje  4/28/2007
Honestly, this name repels me. I would never name my child this, but others can.

Astrid, queen of the Belgians, lived from 1905 to 1935.
-- deroest  11/25/2007
The "ast" part of this name makes me think of stars (because it means star in Greek). It sounds like a name for an ethereal princess in a fantasy story.
-- Pippin  3/15/2008
Pronounced AHST-reet.

After seeing the movie White Oleander, I fell in love with the name Astrid. I consider using it for one of my own children someday.
-- katherine24  8/3/2008
I loved this name until it became the butt of a stupid joke on "the Office." I can't get the association out of my head now.
-- MoonAgeDaydreamer  10/26/2008

I don't know if this counts for a famous bearer or not but still. Kylie Minogue played Astrid Peth in Doctor Who's 2007 episode "Voyage of the Dammed". She was a waitress who, lucky girl, got to kiss the Doctor.

From 1980 to 1983 there was in Spain a child musical group, Regaliz, composed oftwo boys and two girls. The name of one of the girls is Astrid.
-- alberto  5/28/2009
This is such a beautiful name. It's powerful, yet still feminine at the same time! Another thing I love about this name is how it's unique! I would totally use it as a middle name, but as a first name would still be beautiful as well! (:
-- RosePetals016  6/24/2009
In German Astrid is pronounced AHS-trit. [noted -ed]
-- mafiosa  8/6/2009
This is a really coolio name. My only problem is that is starts with Ass. You know, "Ass-strid". On any level, I still love it!
-- baileymarissa  9/12/2009
Jan's daughter in The Office tv show. Michael thinks its Astird.
-- maged  10/3/2009
I think. I think that I would use this as a boy name. It sounds so masculine to me.
-- baileymarissa  10/27/2009
Naming your son Astrid is equal to naming him Eleanor.
-- Anonymous User  12/5/2009
Astrid is a gorgeous name! It's definitely one of my favorites, and it's uncommon, which makes it even better. This name would perfectly suit a rebellious girl with original, rock 'n' roll style.
-- XxproudrulerxX  11/28/2009
I love this name; I think it sounds really elitist without being too snobby, and in my name book it says that this name means "divinely beautiful", so in my opinion it certainly lives up to its name! :)
-- walesgal92  12/19/2009
I love this name. It's strong, it's memorable, it has a great meaning - really, you can't go wrong with Astrid. It's definitely in my top ten.
-- TheDreadedSockMonkey  12/30/2009
But it's one letter off from astroid.
-- Aureliano  2/26/2010
I love this name, I worry, however that it might come across a bit pretentious to call a child Astrid though. You know like I have this idea of her as a cello-playing artist from birth but it's certainly unique and it's a classic name.
-- northernlight  4/2/2010
This name is pretty. I like the fact that it's not overly feminine.
-- Chrila96  10/20/2010
I love this name. I want to use it because it has a great meaning, beautiful sound and it's a perfect blend of my Norwegian and German heritage if that makes any sense. I don't want my child to be called "Asteriod" though.
-- Chrila96  10/26/2010
I'm clearly in the minority here, but I do not like this name at all. It literally sounds "spacey" to me, not only because of its seemingly astrological association but because it just sounds weird to me.
-- Meadow  12/19/2010
Astrid is the name of a character in the movie "How to Train Your Dragon." She is my favorite character and I love this name.
-- missreader  12/28/2010
This name is stunning. Everything about it is stunning. It has something very strong about it, whilst not losing any beauty to it. One of my favourite girls names. :)
-- xsai  5/21/2011
Astrid was the main antagonist in the book Blood and Chocolate. She was described as a "foxey, bitchy vixen."

Astrid Steele is the name of a former porn star played by Jennifer Jones in undoubtedly her bizarrest movie, the 1969 trash Angel, Angel, Down We Go (aka Cult of the Damned).
-- alberto  6/26/2011
I was nearly named Astrid (because of the similarity to the Greek word for 'star'), but my mother hated it. It's a shame because I love the name and it's fairly unusual here.
-- the_awesome_elf  1/8/2012
Please note that the meaning of the Norse adjective fríðr is "beautiful" in the original sense of "beloved", thus the meaning of the name ÁSTRÍÐR, and therefore all derivations, is "she who is loved by the Gods". The meaning stated takes away the spiritual part of the name. It's my own name and been doing research about it for 15 years.

What a pretty name! My name is Melissa and I hate it. I wish my parents named me this.
-- MeinNameIstMelissa  6/12/2013
This is my middle name - I've always been very proud of it, maybe because both my grandmother and grand-grandmother wear it too, and I love them dearly. To me, it always felt like a very robust, sturdy, but yet elegant, name.
-- Sunsetdancer  9/26/2013
Astrid is the name of a character in Skyrim, she's the leader of the Dark Brotherhood.
-- pepper256pasta  12/24/2013
What a wonderful modern-sounding name. It being the name of the creator of Pippi Longstockings just gives it good vibes. I saw on a list that Aster is an upcoming name in America... I prefer Astrid. I found this name from a movie where a beautiful young girl had this name and I fell in love with its international sound, its history, and its rarity in the US.
-- stephanja  1/23/2014
This is a beautiful name and is pronounced Ah-strid. It reminds me of a heroine/fantasy princess. Thank you!

Astrid has always been my favorite girl name. Its nice that it doesn't sound overly feminine without being a unisex name.
