Frieda Origin and Meaning

The name Frieda is a girl's name of German origin meaning "peaceful ruler".
This traditional Germanic name hasn't been on the U.S. list since 1958, but perhaps due to the mythic power of painter Frida Kahlo, parents are beginning to show some interest in it.

The name has other several possible spellings,and in the UK, the similar-sounding name with style appeal is Freya, the Norse god of love.

A common nickname is the effervescent Fritzi.
