Comments for FREDERICK:

I can't believe no one has commented on this name. I really love it, although I despise the nicknames Fred, Freddy and Freddie. Can't say why, I just do. Such a strong and handsome name, though. Love it!

I hate this name. It reminds me of a lumberjack or a hillbilly. Anyone who would use this name has some serious issues.

This website is to be used for mature discussion of names, not wantonly abusing classic, historical names and saying you prefer Ryleigh or some such abominable trash.

It's one thing to have a personal distaste for a name. It's another to say someone who would use it has "serious issues."

Frederick Trottveille or whatever is in Enid Blyton's mystery collection which I have read quite a lot. He's nicknamed Fatty.

This is one of my dad's middle names and he hates it. It's hard to imagine a baby being called Frederick. Freddie for me, is an ok name.

I actually rather like the name Frederick. Very classic. I don't much like the nickname Fred for it, perhaps due to negative associations, but Freddy is sort of cute.

I love the name Frederick and think that Fritz is a cute nickname instead of Freddie or Fred.

The first person to comment took the words right out of my mouth! This name has really been growing on me lately.

I love the meaning of this name, but I just don't think that it sounds very good. It's just not very melodious.
-- Luanna  1/13/2008
I completely agree with the first comment on this name. I also agree that Fritz is a cute alternative.

(Probably) the full name of Fred Weasley, one of the twins in the Harry Potter series.

I can't stand the name for the simple reason that it's the name of insufferable jerks and despicable men that I have heard of over the course of my life. The worst of the all is Fred Phelps. I'm not exactly a fan of Fred Thompson either, and the dimwit Fred Durst has surely ruined the name for those who care little for politics but have a good taste in music. Thus, I associate the name with insufferable idiots, sorry. This is also the name a Finnish singer has gone by for a long time, and he just so happens to be a misogynist, racist jerk.

I love the name Frederick! It's such a strong, solid name, and it has a nice meaning too. Don't mind the nickname Freddy or Freddy, but Frederick is best as it is.

Fred Astaire and Phyllis Livingston Potter have a son Frederick Austerlitz, born 1936.

I don't mind the name as it is- a good, strong name- not great but still good. I have to say though, I adore the nicknames for it, especially "Freddy."

Captain Frederick Wentworth is the romantic hero in Jane Austen's novel Persuasion. He only makes me like the name more.

I like Fred and Freddie for nicknames. Fred makes me think of a 1920s guy in a nifty hat at a jazz club, for some reason.

The American chess champion Frederick "Freddie" Trumper is one of the three leads in Benny Anderson, Tim Rice, and Bjrn Uvaelus's musical Chess.

I like this name, but I absolutely adore the nickname Freddie, probably because of Freddie Mercury, the ROCK GOD!
-- lillyanna  12/19/2009
I think the name Frederick is a spectacular name. Don't let it die out, please! I like Frederick Charles.

This name is such a stereotype lol, honestly the only way someone named Frederick would be taken seriously is if they went by Derick.

There is also a character in 'Sally Lockhart Mysteries', a series of books written by Philip Pullman, called Frederick Garland.

I call my hamster Frederick, because of him! I love this name!

Can't believe no one has mentioned Frederick Douglass. He was a slave who became a famous abolitionist and wrote a very depressing autobiography about his life.

Frederick Law Olmstead (1822-1903) was a famous American landscape designer. Along with his partner, Calvert Vaux, Olmstead designed New York City's Central Park and Prospect Park, Niagara Reservation at Niagara Falls (the oldest state park in the US), Vanderbilt's Biltmore Estate, and many other famous sites still in existence today.

Between Olmstead and his sons, who carried on the landscaping design business after their father's death, they designed the grounds of over 300 university and college campuses, including the University of Chicago, Yale, American University, Bryn Mawr, Wellesley, Stanford, and Cornell.

Not the biggest fan of this name, but I'd be much happier to see a little boy named Frederick than Brayden or Liam or Tyler. The nickname Freddie is adorable!

The middle name of my grandpa. Not a fan of first name usage but it would make a really good middle name with a fn that ends with an "n" :)

Captain Marryat (1792-1848), the famous writer of sea novels, was a Frederick. Great name.

Frederick sounds nerdy to me or something. I don't even like the name Fred, so common and boring. Frederick makes me think of a girl in school who had this as a last name.

Also, the nickname Freddy? Really? Oh that's only the red-headed horror of a doll that kills people.

The name Frederick is very strong and masculine. I love the meaning of this name. The nickname Fred or Freddy/Freddie is cute. :)
-- LoveHeartKawaii  10/21/2014
I would have liked this name if it weren't for that brat I met in high school. He was one of the people that made my life a misery back then. If I would have met another Frederick though, I would assume he's not the same kind of brat. So, I have mixed feelings about this name.

This name has grown on me. I've recently gotten into vintage-type names, and this fits the bill. I also go to school with a Frederick, but we call him Freddie. He's really smart, articulate, and funny, so I guess that's part of the reason I like the name.
