It is a rare name. I have never heard of any like it.
The meaning is not known, according to Store Norske Leksikon: http://snl.no/Futrikelv
May be Futrik = futens rike = futedÝmme, the bailiff's land.
Elv = river.
Or perhaps the name is of Saami origin.
In Norwegian it does not sound like a topographical name.
