Can be a variant spelling of firth, which is like a shallow fjord. Or, equally, can be a cognate of words like Friede = peace. I'd be happy with either!

In that Paul Gallico novel, The Snow Goose, the heroine is Frith, and there's an ultramarathon athlete here in south Africa who is also a female Frith - admirable woman.
