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, reaching 330 in the US Top 1000 in 2016. In England and Wales, Freya is even more popular, reaching Number 21 in 2015. 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.
