I know for boys there is Dror, and I love the meaning but not the sound.

For girls there is Herut, which would be really unusual, but again I love the meaning but not the sound.

As a big stretch, Moshe and any of the "out of Egypt" names tie in a bit with the concept of Freedom.

Any other ideas?

What connotation do you want to convey? Freedom from what? Freedom for what?
Is it named after someone?

I read a beautiful Hebrew poem about freedom (it used the word Dror) and was tempted to give the name Dror, but it just doesn't sound good to my native English speaking ears.

Shalom-freedom of feud
If you name yehoshua, with a nickname Shua then think of it as shortened from yeshuah.
Yehoshua- Hashem will help
Eliezer-also Hashem will help
Ezra-Hashem my helper

This is funny but I was thinking, there is a Yiddish girl's name Ratza- which in Hebrew can mean a run away. Or a will. May it be Hashem's will maybe. Or she wants to.....run away, to be free. Lol.

Lots of religious meaning, and also a nod to the national anthem.

Btw - חירות is a fairly common DL name among the Torani. Most of them are around 20 years old right now.

The name that came into my mind was Ovadiah. After all, that is the purpose of our freedom - to allow us to be ovdei Hashem.

Exactly what I was thinking. Freedom for the sake of freedom is not really a Jewish concept.
That's why I wondered what OP's motive was for naming after freedom.
