If we like Frieda, what else might we like?

We have Nancy, Otto and Isaac already and would like the Germanic connection. Frieda the forerunner for this one but what else might we be missing? And does Frieda work?

I like it. I also really like Greta if that’s any good?

The Thunberg connection plays on my mind, but I love the name.

Oh I hadn’t thought of her (I know a Greta so the name is hers, if you know what I mean), but there are worse associations for sure.

We are both teachers and have encountered far too many Freya’s to use it, but a very pretty name!

These are very much my sort of name - I have a Greta, love Frieda (although I’d spell it Frida) and really like all your existing children’s names OP - Nancy was another one we considered for DD.

Also on our (not very short!) shortlist were:

Aster
Aphra
Merryn
Marin/Maren
Vita
Flora
Cleo/Clio
Helena (Lena)
Honor
Hazel
Stella
Annika

I LOVE Frieda and had a very dear aunt with that name. DH vetoed it though 😭

What about Enid, Margot, Astrid, Ingrid or Heidi?

Astrid, Liesel, Agnes all seem to fit your bill.

But Frida is great, what's putting you off?

Frieda is great and goes well with your other names. I would also suggest Elke and maybe Saskia.
