  1. We wanted something different as a name. We both scoured the Internet for baby names. Then, we looked up names from Norse mythology, since we we are both interested in that. We came upon the name Freya, a norse goddess of love. It sounded and felt just right for our little one.

  2. I love mythology so it was a good fit.

  3. Freya is the Nordic GODDESS of love war and fertility! It’s a STRONG name. She was known to ride her chariot with 2 cats pulling her! I chose a strong name for my girl!

  4. We had our son in 2015 and my husband named him, we decided ihat I would get to name our daughter if we ever had a second child. We had our daughter April 6 2019, and I’ve always loved the name Freya and our daughter just fits the name so well so we agreed and named her Freya

  5. My husband chose Freya. I love the name, it’s simple and uncommon but people often misunderstand when I tell them (hearing Ray-ah or Greta) or they mispronounce, saying Free-ah.

  6. I wanted a strong but beautiful name for our daughter. I loved that you don’t here it often either.

  7. Wanted a Scandinavian name to follow our heritage

  8. We wanted a strong female name that wasn’t common where we live (the US), that wasn’t hard for little hands to write, that wasn’t hard to pronounce, and we wanted it to have strong meaning. Our options came down to Tesla (Tess for short) and Freya (Fey for short). A name is the second gift we give our child, after their life, so we wanted it to be something she could be proud of, not a burden, not something that would just be another painfully common name.

    I love her name. It’s one of my favorite Goddesses (we dropped the j from Freyja so people would pronounce it correctly), it’s equally feminine and strong, like our girl.

    My only warning is that if you name your daughter after a strong, bold woman, they will very likely live up to the name.
