  • I think the name definitely sounds pretty. However, you're going to end up explaining how to say it to everyone. I was glad you put in how to say it, because upon initially reading the name I had no idea how to say it.

  • I think it is beautiful. Isn't it a flower. The only concern I would have is the kids in elementary school and their pronounciation.

  • no, I agree with the onethentwins. and it reminds me of flick a.

    why not just pick a pretty name and not worry so much about it being unusual. Some names aren't used much for a reason!

  • I like the classic version- Freya. It's feminine and strong.
