From the experts:
Freya, the name of the Norse goddess of love, beauty and fertility, has long been popular in the U.K. but is just beginning to be appreciated here. Freya could make a possible namesake for an ancestral Frieda. There is a Joseph Conrad novel titled Freya of the Seven Isles.
Freya has been one of the fastest-rising names of the past few years and is even more popular in England and Wales. We predict that along with the original Nordic spelling Freyja, Freya will continue its meteoric rise in the coming years.
A noted bearer was the explorer and writer Freya Stark.
