Frida is Friday with the y.
-- FairyGirl  7/27/2006
No, Frida is Friday withOUT the "y." Which is totally irrelevant.

Artist Frida Kahlo, who wasn't exactly the prettiest person in the world, which is why I will never name my child Frida.
-- Anonymous User  1/12/2007
Oh, like that matters! I think this is a very pretty name and Frida Kahlo was an excellent artist.

How can anyone think Frida Kahlo was ugly!? I think she was beautiful!
-- Caprice  6/29/2007
Frida Kahlo was half German and originally spelled her name Frieda, which is the German version. In the 1930s, with Nazism on the rise, she started to go by Frida.

Oh, who cares what she was, who cares how good she was at what she was, I don't like how she looks, wah!

Frida of ABBA! I love that band. It's not the prettiest of names, but it IS admirable.

A cartoon character from the cartoon TV series, El Tigre is called Frida Suárez.

It sounds hopelessly old-fashioned and grandmotherly. It makes me think of rather kooky and unattractive old women, too.
-- slight night shiver  5/25/2008
I think I've got an great grandmother with this name. My father says it all the time, for no reason, i.e. "What's for dinner?" "Frida." or "I'm going to go watch the Frida now," not to mention calling everyone in the family "Frida." So, I don't think I can ever use it, or hear it, without laughing.

I love this name! It probably has a lot to do with my love for Anni-Frid "Frida" Lyngstad of ABBA. For months, I wanted to name a daughter Frida, or use it as a middle, but, for some reason, it slipped off of my list. I think I'd still quite happily use it, but as a middle, which is an issue as it's hard to find first names that fit.

My first name is Frida, and I guess I like it enough. But I'm not sure of the origin - one theory is the one Caprice posted, the other is that it is from the word "frid" meaning "peace".
(I'm Swedish, and frid in Swedish means peace, as in peace of mind.)

FairyGirl - ouch. I was bullied from ten to thirteen years of age because of that.

In some instances, Frida may be a nickname for Frederica.
-- vomiting  1/9/2011
Frida Gustavsson is a Swedish model and an amazingly beautiful girl.
-- MarthaMyDear06  8/1/2011
I love the name Frida because it reminds me of the character, and my favorite character, from the show El Tigre, Frida Suarez :D as SuicuneGem mentioned.
