Meaning:Gracious, friendly
Holda is a feminine name of German origin and comes from the old word huld, meaning "gracious" or "friendly." It is a name that began to gain traction in the early nineteenth century thanks to the tales of the Brothers Grimm. Frau Holle, or Frau Holda, was known as the goddess of fertility and agriculture, and first appeared in the book Children's and Household Tales in 1812. She was a protector of women and children and was depicted as a wise individual who lived in the woods. Such a legendary figure may in some way inspire the gracious and friendly nature of baby Holda.
