The name ASKA simply means ASH and refers to the volcanic eruption in 1973. Of course the lava flow and ashes were a terrible thing but it also showed the true heart and courage of the people of Vestmannaeyjar and hospitality since those fortunate enough to keep their houses took in others less fortunate.
