Oaks were sacred in the ancient pagan culture; they were worshiped and considered to be a symbol of manhood, strength and nobility. Oak would be planted by the house upon birth of a son as a charm for a strong personality. In ancient Lithuanian songs oak is usually a metaphor for a man, so... basically, that's a particularly masculine name.

It is not Azuolas, it's Ąžuolas!
