    Name Meaning

    English: from the Middle English personal name Askell with prosthetic H-, from Old Norse Áskell, a shortened form of Ásketill (see Axtell ). The personal name was also popular among the Normans, sometimes in the form Anskell (with ancient Germanic Ans- substituted for As-), which explains why the name occurs in post-Conquest England in counties not settled by Vikings. Its appearance as a surname is often disguised by altered pronunciations; metathesis of /sk/ to /ks/, spelled -x-, for example, has given rise to Axtell . The Normans frequently used the name in Frankish forms; see Askin , Haskin , Hasty , and Astin . For the name in the Isle of Man see Castell .Jewish (Ashkenazic): from the personal name Khaskl, a Yiddish form of the Hebrew name Yeḥezqel (see Ezekiel ).
