Meaning:Elf power; Wise counsel
Alfreda is a feminine name of British origin. An obvious choice for those seeking a stylish vintage name with a magical meaning, Alfreda means “elf power” and “wise counsel.” Alfreda comes from the Old English names Aelfthryth and Aelfraed and may also stem from the German name Alfred. Despite its beautiful pronunciation and epic meaning, Alfreda has been in the shadows for several decades. However, this unique and lyrical appellation may make a comeback with the revival of retro names. The adorable nicknames Freda and Alfie make this name even more appealing, with Alfreda being a sophisticated and simply lovely choice for baby.
