Meaning of the baby name FRITHSWITH.

  

FRITHSWITH.  Variant form of Anglo-Saxon Frideswide (q.v.), meaning "peace strength," from Old English frið "peace" and swiðe "strong."  Also written Frithuswith.

... Our own Saxon saint, Frithswith, strong in peace, was the daughter of the Lord of Oxford, in the eighth century. She lived in a little cell portrayed in a modern window of the cathedral at Oxford, and became the saintly patroness of the University and Cathedral, where, by the name of St. Fridiswid, she reigned over Alma Mater, till Wolsey laid hold of the church and its chapter for his own splendid foundation of Christchurch. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
