Anya. I would think Freya would more open the kid up to being called (french) fry etc. Of course kids can make an insult out of *any* name…

mrstodd2bee :  Yeah, seriously. In my middle school, kids found a way to make fun of any name someone had… Like even if there wasn’t a rhyme the mean kids would make one up even if it didn’t make sense. So unless it’s something super obvious, I don’t think there is any sense in trying to play middle schooler and make up mean rhymes for possible names…

I’ve always been very fond of the name Freya. Anya is lovely as well, but between the two, I’d go with Freya every time!

The Freya name is going to be the new Jessica of our kids generation. I had a million classmates names Jessica In school growing up. I know 5 friends and friends of friends who have gone with a Frozen movie name for their kids and frozen 2 just came out… so I’d skip those names, But if you love names like that you will love this woman’s YouTube Chanel. She does tons of videos on baby names that are slightly unusual and unique. I love her. 

Some ive heard that might be your style 

– Anwyn ( a few spellings I’ve seen)

– Avalon

– Aurora



– June

I’m in the US and Freya sounds very weird to me. Anya for sure.

Anya all the way! I am another fan of the Anastasia movie.

I am not a fan of the name Freya.

Anya!  Freya is the company that makes my bras so that’s all I can think about when I see that name.
