Name with adjective

Hello Swedish Learners, I have a question please. I have an office called (Free Bird), how to give the same meaning in Swedish? Is it right to say (Fri Fågel) or (Fria Fågeln)? Or some other form? Tack så mycket

Definitely Fria fågeln. Note that Swedish skips the definite article when you make a name out of an adjective + noun combination. For instance, if there were a native called White Horse in some old western, they would be called Vita Hästen in Swedish rather than Vit Häst or Den Vita Hästen.

Thank you very much for the prompt reply. I expected this to be different than English where I can use indefinite noun with adjective to form a general name. I think it is clear now. Great, thanks again.
