I have a Freya and I am from Western Canada which I don't think is that dissimilar from the Midwest. Pretty much no one has heard of it here but I don't think that makes it any less appealing. I haven't had any problems with pronunciation, people who haven't heard of it before sometimes pronounce it correctly and sometimes pronounce it free-ah but they respond to my correction and it hasn't been a problem. I think it is a beautiful name and have no regrets using it. It is very common in the UK so I think for North America it is only a matter of time before there is some famous actress or athlete who has the name and everyone becomes familiar with it. I remember 10 years ago telling my mother I liked the name Pippa which she thought was bizarre and now via Pippa Middleton she thinks it is charming. I think the same thing will eventually happen with Freya.

I think it's fairly straight forward in pronunciation and that the sound is so similar to familiar names that it's great for small town USA. It's such a likable name!
