"My name is Astrid and I've always liked it. I was born in the Netherlands where it's a very popular name and pronounced. Uhstrid I like that pronouciation best as it should be. When we emigrated to an English speaking country we had some dumb pronouciations like Ostrich, Asstrid but they are just dumb reactions and truthfully those people can butcher any name. I introduce myself as Uhstrid and there's usually no problems." Apr. 13, 2016:
"My daughter's name is ASTRID and yes I just fell in love with it when I red the White Oleander book and then saw a movie.
I heard it before-there is a writter Astrid Lindgren who wrote "Pippi Longstocking".

On 29 August 1935 Queen Astrid's life ended so tragically when she was killed in a car crash, leaving behind three motherless children including the then-future kings Baudouin (who died in 1993 aged 63) and Albert II (the present king of Belgium since his brother's death). Queen Astrid was described as kind of like the "Diana" (as in Diana, Princess of Wales) of the Twenties and Thirties." Jun. 3, 2008:
