Fradel, male or female #general


Herbert Lazerow
 

Fradel can be either male or female. Alexander Beider, in his Dictionary of
Ashkenazic Given Names, puts the female version as a variant on Freyde, and the
male version as a variant on Freydman, meaning joy and joyful man, and both
probably a translation of simkha.
