Origin:British
Meaning:ash tree town
Hoping baby can stand tall and graceful like an evergreen tree is a goal among many parents. Giving your new little addition a name such as the British Ashtyn, meaning “ash tree town,” will help them to stand tall even at their darkest times. In Norse mythology, the ash was considered the tree of life as the first man was said to have come from one. Still to this day, in some practices, people will burn ash to ward off evil spirits for protection. So if you believe that baby Ashtyn could possess the same skills of keeping away the bad spirits in your life, this name would be a lovely choice.
