Name Root:
*ansuz *bernu- / *berô > áss BJÖRN > Ǣsbiǫrn
This name is of Old Norse origin, composed of two elements: “áss” (heathen god, god, deity), from the Proto-Germanic “*ansuz” plus “bjǫrn” (bear, wild animal), and linked to the surname Ásbjǫrn and Asbjørnsen. In Old Norse, the symbolic form means “God gave me the strength as a bear.” Ansuz is deity belonging to the principal pantheon in Germanic paganism. In the Norwegian rune poem, “óss” is given a meaning of “estuary,” while in the Anglo-Saxon one, “ōs” takes the Latin meaning of “mouth.” Osbern Pinnock of Gloucester (1123–1200) was a Christian monk and English lexicographer belonging to the Benedictine order of St. Peter’s Abbey of Gloucester.
