Meaning of the baby name ASKETILL.

  

ÁSKETILL.  Old Norse name, composed of the elements áss (sing. of aasir), "divinity, god," and ketill "cauldron, kettle," hence "divine kettle."  Also spelled Ansketil, Askjell, and Asketyl.

... So much progress seems to have been made that Thurstan, probably soon after he became archbishop, put the canons of Hexham under the rule of a Prior.  This officer was a member of the newly-introduced Augustinian order, and came into the North from a famous monastery at Huntingdon.  His name was Asketill, and he presided over Hexham till he died on the 18th of March, 1129-30. (The Priory of Hexham, Raine, 1863)
