An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


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