Fried Name Meaning

Jewish (Ashkenazic): from Yiddish frid ‘peace’. Compare modern German Friede, which was sometimes chosen as a translation of the Hebrew personal name Shlomo, whose root letters are the same as those of shalom ‘peace’ (see Solomon), although in most cases it is simply an ornamental name. German: from a short form of the personal name Friedrich.
