AS far as i know the Forth name comes From the firth of Forth area in scotland, and before that i believe our family name has a scandanavian beginning, a teacher from my school once told me my family name was from the vikings and i am pretty sure this is the case because my branch of the family has always had dealing's with the sea and the fishing industry in particular, it seem's wherever there is a inlet from the north sea you will find clusters of forth's there around the coastal area's, by the way i was also told the name Forth comes from the viking Thor, as in the Firth of Thor = Firth of Forth, i myself still live around the noth east coast of england close to a river, seems to be the pattern..
