The ancient origin of the name Frost was found in the irishsurnames.com archives. Meaning 'the son of Frost', Frost is a baptismal name from someone of an icy and unbending disposition or who had white hair or a beard. To the same class of name belongs Snow, a great favorite in Scandinavia. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland, Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout the above islands. Examples of such are a Henry Frost, Norfolk, and a Robert Frost, Lincolnshire, who were recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England, in the year 1273. A Johannes Frost and Dionisius Frost were recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire in the year 1379. A John Frost was recorded in the ancient 'Close Rolls', and in Scotland the surname was recorded in Banchory-Devenick, in the year 1819.

In Ireland this name and its variants were introduced into Ulster Province by settlers who arrived from England and Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century. During the 'Plantations of Ireland' in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries Ireland was colonized by the English Crown with this period marking the end of Gaelic supremacy in Ireland. This period brought an influx of settlers into the country but, unlike the earlier Anglo-Norman invasion of the twelfth century that resulted in a full integration into Irish society of the new arrivals, the same never occurred with the Ulster Planters who maintained their own distinct identity.

It is also found in East County Clare.The Frost family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Frost descendants.
