Hm, I'm going to say it's was a combo of Old English freo/frið "freeborn" and Germanic war "guard". (Such language meldings were rather uncommon, but certainly not unheard of.)

I'm not entirely certain of these elements, but I think the above's a good educated guess.

Incidentally, Hrothgar's just a form of Roger.
