An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancient Viking-Scottish name Ase is derived from the name Aassi, which is a Old Norse form of the Old English personal name Oswald, which means divine power. The original spelling of the surname Ase was Aassiesen, and this form is preserved in the Shetlands; many diminutive forms of the surname also exist. The surname was recorded in the Landnamabok (the Icelandic Book of settlement), as Asi.

Ase Early Origins



The surname Ase was first found in the Shetlands, where it is a form of Oswald.
