Derived from Icelandic ást meaning "affection, love, devotion" and rós "rose". This is a modern coinage, perhaps inspired by the similar name Ástríður (the Icelandic form of Ástríðr), in which the first element is a form of Old Norse áss "god", which in proper names becomes Ást- when it precedes the liquid r (this according to the Viking Answer Lady).
