Frederick

Origin: Kenya
gender-male
Region Origin: Eastern Africa

Frederick is a masculine given name meaning "peaceful ruler". It is the English form of the German name Friedrich, which is derived from the Germanic word elements "frid," meaning peace, and "ric," meaning "ruler" or "power". The name has been adopted by various cultures, including Scandinavian, Teutonic, and American, and carries the significance of a peaceful ruler in these contexts. The origin of the name Frederick can be traced back to Old High German roots, where "Fridu" signifies peace or protection, and "rihhi" conveys power, wealth, or rulership. The Normans brought the name to England in the 11th century, but its popularity declined after that. The name has since been used by rulers of the Holy Roman Empire, Germany, Austria, Scandinavia, and Prussia.
