Fredrik Reinfeldt isn't a president, Sweden is a monarchy. He's our prime minister.

Fredrik comes from the word "fred" which means "peace", and the word "rik" which means "rich". The name is also widely used in both Denmark and Norway.

Although I'm sure this name is pronounced the same way as Frederick, I wouldn't choose to spell it this way.
