This is where the name Ashley comes from.

Not precisely. The 'Ash' part of Ashley comes from this Anglo-Saxon origin, but the 'ley' comes from a totally different word ('lea' or 'legh' I think are older forms but I'm not sure of the original) combined with the 'ash' part to make a grove of ash trees. But yes, this is an early form of 'Ash.'

In the Celtic Tree Calendar, the Ash is the tree designated for the time between February 18 - March 17 and symbolizes Prosperity, Protection, and Healing.

If you pronounce it in Norwegian (or Norse) the Æ will be pronounced like the "a" sound in man. This will not make a very pretty name, as the Æ sound in the Norwegian alphabet is concidered kind of ugly. Here in Norway, the alternative "Ask" (AH-sk) is used as a name.
