Name Meaning

1 English: from the Norman personal name Asketin, a pet form of the Old Norse name Ásketil ( see Haskell ).2 Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hUiscín ‘descendant of Uiscín’, apparently a diminutive of uisce ‘water’ (and thus the surname may be ‘translated’ Waters ), but possibly a corruption of a diminutive of Fuarghus meaning ‘cold choice’.3 Jewish (from Ukraine): metronymic from Yiddish name Khaske, a pet form of Khane ( see Hanna 1) + the Slavic possessive suffix -in.
