Frīgus is "cold" in Latin.
Oops! I accidentally wrote "Frigerator" because of how the Romanian word sounded :)
Although, it accepts fridge.
It's all right. Remember, English is influenced in part by Latin.
in the philippines, my grandma would often call fridge like that! i guess that was the only translation of fridge in tagalog
Does it sound like the brand name FridgidAir to anyone else?
Frigidaire. See my comment above.
Didn't have to downvote me, but ok
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 (:
Oh I see! thanks :) Shalom
