Frid is a Scandinavian (Norse) surname, derived from the name of the god Frey (Freyr) - same derivation as the day of the week (Tuesday -Tws Norse god of the sea, Wednesday -Wodin/Odin father of the gods, Thursday - Thor's day and Fri day - Freyr) (Names of the days of the week).

Frid is often translated from modern Swedish as meaning peace.

Frid features in the sagas as the name of a Valkyrie and the modern (English) spelling may derive from the old Norse rendering of Frið.
