    Help please!

    One of my FAVORITE names for boys is Friedrich. Pronounced Free-drick. I love this name so much, but I don't get a good response for it. A lot of people ask if it's made up. It's a German name, but I don't even know if it is popular in Germany. Is this name usable, or will I have to sadly take it off my list? I really love it, but I don't like keeping names on the list that there is no possibility of me ever using. Advice?
    Jane, Vivian, Lydia, Annabeth, Tallulah (Lula), Florence, Virginia, Mabel, Risa, Eve, Eloise, Susannah

    John, Alan, Maxwell, Erich, Nathan/Nathaniel, Leo, Connor, Jack, Paul, Rieger, Francis

    "Any daughter of mine that wants to be a stripper, pole dancer, or porn star is going to have to overcome the obstacle of her dripping-with-intelligence name and change it herself to something creatively slutty like they did back in the good ol' days."

    If you love it, go for it. I have a friend who named her son Anders. When she told people the name, they were hesitant at first, but now it's SO him! It doesn't seem odd or funny and no one ever makes any negative comments about it. Friedrich is a genuine, honest-to-goodness name, which is more than many children will be able to say for their kre8tif monikers! If you keep coming back to it, it's the right name. Good luck!

    Made up?! It's such a beautiful traditional German name - the name of many kings!

    It's an elegant, classy name and if you love it you should use it. As soon as I read what you posted I thought of Little Women and the professor whom Jo fell in love with - Friedrich.

    Do these same people also dislike Frederick? It is probably just a difference in styles and does not have anything at all to do with the fact that the name is German. How do you feel about the nn Fritz? Do your friends and family like that?

    Personally, I like Friedrich and I'd use it if I didn't already prefer Frederick.
