[Northkeep] Regional Names--Hrith

I believe the H is supposed to be silent so it is pronounced Rith-mark. It could 
be one of those breathy sounds that changes the R. Not having heard anyone 
speaking any Old English with the proper inflections I am not sure.
But because it is there I am sure some people will use it, either way it is a 
cool sounding name that can hold many meanings.

Not sure if there's any relationship, but there's an East Indian name Hritik or 
Hrithik which is the name of a Sage; and means also: Intelligent Person; From 
the Heart (there's that Heartland thing again :-) )

Is the "H" pronounced or is it silent as in the names, Hroar?
