Hi. I’m sorry if this is not the place to ask this sort of question, but if it’s okay, I’d really like someone’s help on this. My friend is doing some research into his family from centuries ago, and has come across a name which none of us have a clue where it may have come from – does anyone know where the name “Iscale” may originate from? It’s a male name, if it doesn’t appear obvious. Also, in the handwritten form, apparently it can sometimes look like “Ascale”, too. Does anyone know where this name could come from? As far as we know so far, the vast majority of my friend's family stayed in England or Wales their whole lives, but I don't think it sounds like a Celtic name to me... although I don't claim to be an expert :]
Thank you very much for any information; all suggestions are very much appreciated both by me and my friend. I apologise if this is an inappropriate question for the forum.
