Meaning:Of Astrid; Divinely beautiful; Of Astra; Of the stars
Calling all those with a love for lore! You’re sure to fall in love with ethereal Astride, a feminine name of Old Norse origin. This striking form of Astrid translates to “divinely beautiful,” and you can extend that to inner beauty, too. It takes inspiration from Astrid Eiriksdatter, a 10th-century queen consort of the Viking King Tryggve Olafsson. Forms of Astrid are super popular in Scandinavian countries, thanks to many royal figures throughout history who bear the name. It’s also shared with many fictional TV characters, from a fierce shield-maiden in Vikings to the daughter of Jan and Andy in The Office. Some also believe Astride shares roots with Latin Astra, meaning “of the stars,” adding to its otherworldly feel. Your Astride will have a beautiful soul that outshines even the brightest constellations.
