The noble surname Asencio is of Spanish descent and appears to be of locative origin. Thus, the name is derived from a natural or man-made feature near to where the original bearer once dwelled. In this instance, the surname Asencio is derived from the Basque word "asen" meaning "blackberry bush," and the locative suffix "-sio." Thus the surname Asencio signifies "dweller at the place where the blackberry bushes grew."

Asencio Early Origins



The surname Asencio was first found in the northern Basque country, where the family was able to establish their "casa solar" and become an influential family.
