This name derives from the Old Norse name ÁslæikR, composed of two elements: *ansuz (heathen god, áss, god) plus lėih (joke, amusement, exercise, sport, dance, magic, music, melody, song). Ansuz is the conventional name given to the a-rune of the Elder Futhark, ᚨ. The name is based on Common Germanic *ansuz "a god, one of the main deities in Germanic paganism".
