Haskin Name Meaning

English: from the Norman personal name Asketin, a pet form of the Old Norse name Ásketil (see Haskell). Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hUiscín ‘descendant of Uiscín’, apparently a diminutive of uisce ‘water’ (and thus the surname may be ‘translated’ Waters), but possibly a corruption of a diminutive of Fuarghus meaning ‘cold choice’. Jewish (from Ukraine): metronymic from Yiddish name Khaske, a pet form of Khane (see Hanna 1) + the Slavic possessive suffix -in.
