It's also the name of the Nordic goddess of fertility - Freja, and in Denmark, Norway and Sweden friday is named after her "fredag" - Freja's day.

Depending on where you are in the world, Freja will be pronounced as frey-ah, frei-ah, or fre-jah. Despite the potential confusion, I think I prefer Freja to Freya.

It is Fray-A. It is modern Danish spelling, which makes sense there.

Is it pronounced Frey-JA or Frey-A?

This is a top pick for us if #4 is a girl. Frieda is also a top contender. We'd like to honor my grandfather, Frederick, and my lovely mom, Freddie Kay, by naming our last little love after them. If a boy we'll have a Frederick.

the model Freja Beha Erichsen made me like this name but I think I like the spelling Freya more. I'm not brave enough to use it as a first tho :(
