Name Meaning

1 English: habitational name from a place in the parish of Ormskirk, Lancashire called Aspinwall (also Asmall), from an Old English word æspen ‘growing with aspen trees’ + wæll(a) ‘stream’. There has probably also been some confusion with another Lancashire habitational surname, Aspinhalgh, the second element of which is Old English halh ‘nook’.2 According to Einar Haugen, the Norwegian family name Asbjørnsen has been assimilated to Aspinwall in America.
