Etymology: Danish Aksel, first used for the bishop and statesman Absalon Hvide (1128-1201), from biblical Absalom. Some sources suggest that the bishop was originally named ískell, from "god" + "cauldron, helmet", and Absalon was chosen as the nearest-sounding Christian equivalent, leading to the exchange of the middle consonants.
