Freyr/Frey is indeed the name of the Norse/Germanic fertility God (Vanir not Aesir). Freyja/Freya is his sister. I pronounce the name as indicated in Kveldulf Gundarsson's "Elves Wights and Trolls" which says "final r - in modern Icelandic spelt and pronounced - ur. In old Norse the vowel should ideally, but need not, be shortened to as near nonexistent as your mind and mouth can manage". So Frey-r. The name means "Lord"
I am a Norse Tradition Pagan and have a statue of Freyr on my altar. I would warn you that most representations feature a large, erect phallus in the manner of many fertility Gods. Thus: www.wyrdsway.com/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=136&ccSID=78897aac25b045edb4e4e4d94e74e496
