The noble surname Asenjo 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 Asenjo is derived from the Basque word "asen" meaning "blackberry bush," and the locative suffix "-sio." Thus the surname Asenjo signifies "dweller at the place where the blackberry bushes grew."

Asenjo Early Origins



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