Toth means slovakian, and the -th is pronounced as if the h wasn't there (not like the english th). some other nationalities that sometimes appear as surnames: Horvath (croatian), Legyel (polish), Nemeth (german).

The h on the end is an anachronism, often used in a surname, but not when used as an adjective using modern hungarian spelling.
