    Acelina of Derelei - PICTS, French and Germans... and Italians


    Acelina: <Old French. A(s)celine < Continental Germanic. Azilin < Azo; DECN has themasculine form ACELIN. [Aslin]

    Acelina: 1195 Aslin

    Ascelina: 1195 Stanfield; 1205 Waterfield; 1207 (W); 1210 Gravatt; 1214 Aslin; 1228 (S:Æðelgifu)

    Ascela might be related to Ascelina:

    Acelina (also Acelina, Acelin, Ascelin, Ascelina) derived from Old French A(s)celine, derived from Germanic Azilin, derived from Azo

    Germanic Azo a form of Adal- "noble"

    Or, (less likely I think) it might be related to the name of the star Ascella - from "axilla" = armpit (it's the "armpit" of the archer figure in the constellation Sagitarrius).

      Acelin/a in Bremen

      The boy's name Acelin \a-ce-lin\ is of French origin, and its meaning is "highborn".

      Baby names that sound like Acelin are Acilino, Aslan and Joslin. Other similar baby names are Acel, Allin, Alin, Ailin, Arlin, Ashlin and Adlin.

      Acelin: "Highborn."

      Acelin, dean of Bremen, was consecrated bishop in 1061

      Bremen :

      Formerly the seat of an archdiocese situated in the north-western part of the present German Empire. After Charlemagne's conquest of the Saxons, Christianity was preached in the region about the lower Elbe and the lower Weser by St. Willehad; in 787 Willehad was consecrated bishop, and that part of Saxony and Friesland about the mouth of the Weser assigned him for his diocese. He chose as his see the city of Bremen, which is mentioned for the first time in documents of 782, and built there a cathedral, praised for its beauty by St. Anschar; it was dedicated in 789. The Diocese of Bremen, however, was erected only under St. Willehad's successor, St. Willerich (804 or 805-838). After the death of the third bishop, Leuderich (d. 845), by an act of synod of Mainz (848), Bremen was united with the Archdiocese of Hamburg, which, since its foundation, in 831, had been under St. Anschar, who was appointed first archbishop of the new archdiocese (848-865). Hamburg had been destroyed by the Vikings in 845, and in 1072, after a second destruction of the city, the archiepiscopal see was definitely transferred to Bremen, though the title was not formally transferred until 1223. Until the secularization of 1803 Hamburg had its own cathedral chapter. Before it was united with Hamburg, the Diocese of Bremen had belonged to the Province of Cologne. Despite the protests of the Archbishop of Cologne against the separation of Bremen, Pope Nicholas I, in 864, confirmed the new foundation, which fell heir to the task of evangelizing the pagan North.
