Where did the Spanish Asencio family come from? What is the Spanish Asencio family crest and coat of arms? When did the Asencio family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Asencio family history?

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."


Spelling variations of this family name include: Asensio, Asencio, Asenjo, Asentzio and others.

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