||meaning and or origin of the name Asphy by Juanita Millsap Robinson
that surname is very difficult, but i've thought of some possibilities myself (didn;t find anything useful on the web):
1) it is a variant of Ashby, which consists of ash = 'the ash-tree' and by = 'town', thus meaning 'ash-tree town'.
2) from the Moroccan placename Asfi, which seems to me very unlikely, but you never know for sure.
3) a variant of Ashfield, but also not the most likely possibility.
