Name Meaning

English: from the Old Norse personal name Ásbjorn, composed of the elements ás ‘god’ + björn ‘bear’. This was established in England before the Conquest, in the late Old English form Ōsbern, and was later reinforced by Norman Osbern. The surname Osborne has also been widely established in Ireland since the 16th century.
