Nach P. Sipma (Artikel Eala Fria Fresena in Pompebledden 19/1948, S. 21-24, ist dieser in der jetzigen Form offenbar sprachlich verderbte Spruch im Altfriesischen nicht belegt. Er taucht 1588 zum ersten Mal als "eele ffrye ffryse" bei C. Kempius auf, dann 1617 als "Ela fria fresena/fresa" bei S. Siccama, schließlich 1686 bei S. A. Gabbema in der Form "Eela Fria Fresena". Er bedeutet wahrscheinlich "edler freier Friese" oder "edle freie Friesen". Das erste Wort hat mit der altenglischen Interjektion "eala" (Bedeutung "ach, wehe, oh") aus sprachlicher Sicht nichts zu tun.

And with modern West-Lauwers Frisian "Eala"?
