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."
