Meaning:Peaceful ruler
Boasting German roots and a vintage charm, the name Frederica is a worthy contender for those looking for a classic moniker for baby. Frederica is derived from the Old German Frithuric, composed of the elements friþuz meaning “peace,” and rīkijaz meaning “powerful” or “noble,” giving it the distinguished definition of “peaceful ruler.” As the feminine form of Frederick, this name offers a sense of regality, making it an ideal choice for babies destined for greatness. If Frederica sounds a bit too formal, it can be easily softened with sweet nicknames such as Freddie or even Erica.
