I've been thinking about Freya lately What's your opinion on it? I love the myth connection, plus I'm in the States so it isn't very popular. It makes for a stronger, more substantial alternative to Faye, which is also lovely.
What kind of name would you pair it with?
I was thinking:
When it's in first place, I think a middle with a strong consonant beginning (L, C, S, M, R, B) is better, since the -eya ending is so soft.
In the middle spot, I think it sounds better if the first name ends in a vowel, to balance the consonant-heavy Fr- beginning.
What do you think?
Any and all ideas, opinions, an/or suggestions welcome

I love it! It's on my list and it's so soft, girly but strong as well. I love the Norse mythology tie it has and the fact Freya is the Norse goddess of love, beauty and fertility! It's popular where I am (England) but I don't care anyway, and considering you're in the US where it's not so much, it'll be a refreshing name to see there!
Freya Charlotte is lovely. I also like Freya Madeleine.

I like Freya, I have it as a middle (but spelt Frejya). I really love Freya Guinevere, Freya Beatrix, and Freya Charlotte, although that might be because I love all 3 middles too. With Freya as a middle, I quite like Silvia Freya. I also think Magdalene Freya (part of my combo) or Freya Magdalene could be nice, and Freya Evangeline popped into my head for some reason.Wholock | Historian | Biochemist | Single Pringle | Teenberry (18) | Future mummy 😏Dreaming of...
