From the experts:
Astrid has been a Scandinavian royal name since the tenth century—and more recently in Belgium—but has never really assimilated into our culture the way Ingrid did. Many people associated it with the Swedish author of the Pippi Longstocking stories, Astrid Lindgren.
With the renewed interest in international names, Astrid might be worth consideration by parents with Norse roots.
Astrid is the name of the teenage heroine of Janet Finch's 1999 novel White Oleander and has appeared as a character in How to Train Your Dragon and the TV shows Fringe and Once upon a Time.
