This is my middle name, after my Czech grandmother. It is a variant of Frida not Freda. It means "Joy" in Yiddish. I am a little creeped out that the site says it is from Elfreda meaning "elf straight." I am not an elf, neither was my grandmother.

My name is Frieda (short for Friederike), I used to hate it because I thought it's a name for an old lady, but I've grown to like it because it's not very common and I like both the Nordic and the Yiddish meaning.

The painter Frida Kahlo was half-German, and her first name was originally spelled Frieda. However, when Germany started to go Nazi in the 1930s, she changed the spelling to Frida to avoid any implied associations with the party and what was going on in Germany.

I detest this name to the end. For one, the first five letters, FRIED, makes me think of greasy chicken and French fries (I'm well aware that it's not pronounced the same way. But it is spelled the same way). My 7th grade teacher's name was Frieda. It suited her; she was 60. I can't imagine using it in the current time. It seems awkward.
