Freya Name Meaning

Freya is a name that comes from Nordic legends. Freya is the goddess of love, fertility and beauty. The name itself comes from Old Norse and means "Lady". Freyja is one of the most prominent gods of Norse mythology. She is certainly the best-constructed goddess in Nordic legends. She is often portrayed as the “party girl” of ancient Scandinavia. When it comes to sexuality, she was a liberated goddess. The legends say four dwarves gave her a magical necklace in exchange for her sleeping with them. When worn, the necklace gave her a power that no elf or god could resist her. She was also a powerful fighter on the battlegrounds. He could shape-shift. Ultimately, she was the symbol of a strong woman until the Christian church tried to hide her and try to marginalize women.
