An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The saga of the name Atling begins among the Viking settlers who arrived in Scotland in the medieval era. The name Atling 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 Atling 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.

Atling Early Origins



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