Meaning & Origins

Originally male, but now an increasingly popular given name for girls, this is a transferred use of the surname, which comes from any of numerous places in England named with Old English æsc ‘ash’ + lēah ‘wood’. It is recorded as a given name in the 16th century, but its wider use was probably inspired by Anthony Ashley Cooper (1801–85), 7th Earl of Shaftesbury, a noted humanitarian who inspired much of the legislation designed to improve conditions among the working classes. It became one of the three most popular girls' names in North America in the latter half of the 20th century, with a wide variety of spellings.
66th in the U.S.
English: from a Middle English pet form of the female personal name Emma, introduced into England from France by the Normans, among whom it was extremely popular. The name is of Germanic origin, probably originating as a hypocoristic form of women's names with a first element ermin ‘entire’.
