Instead, the couple opted to cast their net a bit wider and be open to other letters. That’s when inspiration came from an unexpected place. “I met this young boy in L.A., actually, and I said, ‘What’s your name?’ and he said, ‘Chosen,’” Brooks recalled.
The young man got her thinking about the meaning her child’s name would have and so she told her fiancé, “I want a powerful name.” He suggested Free. “I said, ‘I like Free!’” Brooks remembered. “So we started doing some research and there’s this Nordic goddess [named Freya] and she stands for beauty and love and all these nice things.”
They decided to add their own flair to the goddesses moniker. “We decided to add two ‘E’s and give her the name Free, because I just want her to live her life that way. I’ll put her in check if I need to, but I want her to have the freedom that she deserves to have,” she explained.
A cute name with a deep meaning? We’re all about it.
