The prestigious French surname Ascencio is a proud sign of a rich and dynamic ancestry. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in France were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. As well as the names of the saints of the Christian Church, many of the most common French surnames are derived from personal names of Germanic origin. They derive from the language of the Franks, who controlled France between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries. The name Ascencio is derived from the Old French forename "Ascelin", which itself comes from the Germanic name "Adalin".
The surname Ascencio was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France, where this ancient family has held a family seat from very early times.
