The name MacAskill is of Norse origin.
The ancient Norse name "Askell" is the source.
Up until a couple of generations ago my family spelled the name "MacAskell".
It is a small step to "Haskell".
The MacAskills were known collectively as "Clan Tasgaill".
I saw someone in a census called "Taskell MacAskill", so it is quite easy to see how "Haskell" could have come about.
