Any connection with Fay? Interesting.
Freya is the goddess of love, death, beauty, fertility and war in Norse mythology, and the twin sister of Freyr. The name comes from Old Norse freyja meaning “lady” which comes from Proto-Germanic *frawjǭ (lady, wife of a lord) which derives from a PIE root word. There seems to be some thought that Freya and Frigg were once the same goddess (Frigg being the wife of Odin and goddess of marriage, childbirth, and the earth).
