Name Meaning

English (North and West Midlands): habitational name from any of several minor places, generally named from Old English æsc ‘ash’ + mōr ‘moor, high tract of barren ground, marsh’. In the case of Ashmore in Dorset, however, the early forms show that the second element is Old English mere ‘lake’. This surname is also common in Ireland.
