Etymology[edit]

From a Spanish-Visigothic given name. The first part of the name, froi-, probably stems from a Germanic noun *frau-, as in Old English frēa (lord). The second part of the name probably stems from the Germanic diminutive suffix *-ila, as in Gothic *𐍅𐌿𐌻𐍆𐌹𐌻𐌰 (*wulfila).

Fruela is a variant of Froila.
