Several of the streets in this area have Scottish connections. Nearby Athol and Gower Streets bear the names of a historic Pictish province in Scotland. There were a number of prominent members of the Fraser clan who were Lords of Lovat.
I don't know whether this Fraser Street was named after one of them, but you may be interested in hearing about Simon Fraser, the 11th Lord Lovat. In 1697, he kidnapped and forcibly married his father's widow, Lady Amelia Murray, daughter of John Murray, the 1st Marquess of Athol. For this he was sentenced to death. However, he supported the Government against the Jacobean uprising and was given a pardon. Later on though, he took part in the 1745 Jacobean uprising and his sentence was re-imposed. In 1745, at the age of 80, he was the last man in Britain to be beheaded on Tower Hill in London.
