Oops! I accidentally wrote "Frigerator" because of how the Romanian word sounded :)

It's all right. Remember, English is influenced in part by Latin.

Frīgus is "cold" in Latin.

In Hebrew we say this as well. Does it exist in other languages?

Frigider was a famous american brand of refrigerators, maybe even the first, that's why people started calling the product by the name of the company (the word itself is english of course). Same case as of פלאפון in hebrew (:
