The name FORTH is similar to names of FORD and FIRTH the crossing of a river.
It is possible that a family were 'given' the family name because of where they came from, eg I am JOHN from the ford crossing on River Thames' etc, this was when people didn't have a end name.
I understand it is common in England, I do not believe the 'FORTH' name is scotish.
