Multiple Origins for the Surname Frederick



Frederick Early Origins



The surname Frederick was first found in Baden, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.The name is derived from the root "frid," meaning "peace," and may sometimes have been chosen as a translation of the Hebrew given name Shelomo, since the root letters are those of shalom, the word for peace.
