To the comment about Ashley and the significance of ash trees: The ash tree has a tremendous significance in Norse mythology. The Norse believe that Yggdrasil (portrayed by an Ash tree), connected all of the "9 worlds", and that the first man, Ask (which means ash in old Norse), was made out of an ash tree. It was also commonly believed in Europe that snakes were repelled by ash leaves. Ash trees have also have many medicinal herbs. So, in Europe, ash trees signified a source of healing, origin, and protection, meanings which could easily be passed onto the name.
