    Let's talk about Frederick

    Frederick is a name that's been creeping up on me for a while now. I love that it has such a long and distinguished history of use, I like the strength that Frederick has, and it doesn't have such a bad literal meaning either - "peaceful ruler." Even though I'm not a nicknamer, the possibility of Fred or Freddie appeals to me. What do you think of Frederick?

    It's one of my favorite names for a boy, and is currently at the top of my list. My favorite combination right now is Frederick James.

    I also like Fred, and Freddie is growing on me. Really I just like the strong sound of Frederick. I generally prefer softer names for boys, so this one is even more special in that sense.

    This is near the top of my list. The only thing holding me back is a personal association I have with it. But it's such a wonderful name that I'm very close to letting that go. As pp said, I love that it's strong and yet kind of soft at the same time. And I love Freddie as a nn. I have a feeling this will be one of those names that will see a resurgence now that people are seeking a normal but less common name with fun nn potential. That's okay though because no matter how many Fredericks are running around, it is a great, classic name that will never be trendy and will never go out of style.

    I prefer the spelling Frederic since it's connected to one of my favorite composers (Chopin) and I love it. I dislike the nicknames though.
