I enountered this name in a book I read in fifth grade and loved it at first sight. I had never heard it before. It's so charming, so offbeat, yet so pretty. A Frederica could be a tomboy or a priss. The full name is really old-fashioned and adult-sounding, but it has easily accessable nicknames too. Freddi and Ricki sound good for a tomboy.
Frederica is the feminine form of Frederick.
