When I was doing a project at university on place names I remember reading that Frith is an Old English word meaning furze which is another word for gorse, a prickly bush found on heathland (and The New Forest among other places). There is a place called Fritham which has a lot of gorse bushes around there. I've heard Frith as a surname, but not as a first name.
