Other Origin(s):Finnish
Meaning:Cauldron of the gods; Protected by God; Step, pace
Askel is a masculine name of Norse origin. While it literally translates to “cauldron of the gods,” it can also mean “protected by God.” That said, there is reason to believe that it takes on a third meaning, that of “step” or “pace” in Proto-Finnic. So, Askel is more than just a name, it’s a heartfelt prayer to watch over your little one as they make their strides in the world.
