Ashkenaz

Ashkenaz [N] [E] [H]

(spreading fire ), one of the three sons of Gomer, son of Japhet. ( Genesis 10:3 ) We may probably recognize the tribe of Ashkenaz on the northern shore of Asia Minor in the name of Lake Ascanius, and in Europe in the name Scandia, Scandinavia . Knobel considers that Ashkenaz is to be identified with the German race.
