Elfrida Origin and Meaning

The name Elfrida is girl's name of English origin meaning "elf power".
The name of the mother of Aethelred the Unready was once common among the Anglo-Saxon nobility, and was briefly revived during the 19th century, only to be lost once again to history. However, with the recent revival of Frida and other clunky-cool vintage gems like Agatha, Matilda and Theodora, we think this ancient option could be worth a second look. And how cute would a baby Elfie be?
