Meaning of the baby name ASGEIRR.

  

ÁSGEIRR.  Old Norse name composed of the Icelandic elements áas, "divinity, god," and geirr, "spear," hence "divine spear."  Also spelled Asgjer (q.v.). (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

... Professor Zimmer, of Greifswald, refers Oscar to the Norse Asgeirr, gods' spear, ás being here the same as the Saxon ós... 
... The reference of Oscar to Asgeirr has more to say for it, but there is one fatal, or almost fatal, objection to the derivation: the a of Asgeirr is long, and would give óscar... (Transactions of the Gaelic Society of Glasgow, v.2, 1891-94).
