Edmonton’s first baby of 2015: Echo Frejya Grey

I haven’t seen many New Year’s baby announcements yet, but one of the announcements I have seen featured a rather distinctive name: Echo Frejya Grey.

Echo Frejya Grey Adams was the first baby of 2015 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. She was born to Kayla McEvoy and Jared Adams at 12:02 am on New Year’s Day.

Where did her three given names come from?

  • Echo came from the character Echo of the short-lived sci-fi TV series Dollhouse, created by Joss Whedon. “The couple agreed on the name Echo before she was even conceived, admiring the TV character’s strong personality and “take no prisoners” attitude.”
  • Frejya commemorates Iceland, which is where Kayla and Jared got married.
  • Grey came from the character Jean Grey of the X-Men comic series.

Frejya has never been in the U.S. baby name data, but Echo and Grey have.

Which of these three names do you like best?

  1. Did Freyja really fail to appear on those lists? There exists at least one other spelling (Freya — and maybe Freija).
