English and Scottish: from the Middle English personal name Frebern (Old English Frēobeorn). Or possibly also from Middle English fre-boren, freborn ‘free-born’ (Old English frēo + boren), for ‘one born free, inheriting liberty, descended from freemen’, though the bulk of the evidence strongly suggests that the personal name is the usual source of the surname.
