Comments for the name Ask

Comments for ASK:

It's important to keep in mind that this name is NOT English and is therefore not pronounced like the English verb 'Ask' - the word 'Ask' is pronounced with a long 'a', like this: /a:sk/. In fact, since, in this case, the word (ie the name) is Norwegian, all English vowel-length rules and so on are utterly useless and obviously do not apply. Therefore, the given name 'Ask' is pronounced with a short 'a' and straight forward like this: /Ask/ and it consists of one syllable.

This name is still used in Norway and, while not exceedingly common, it's not uncommon either. It's generally very well liked.

In Norwegian 'Ask' means 'ash tree'.

It's also the name of several places in Norway.
