Welcome to my home page! My name is Anna Jia-Xue Aslaksen (艾加雪) and I was born at 7:36 a.m. on July 3, 2007. I was named Anna after my great-grandmother Anna Dedekam Aslaksen (born Herlofson) (1898 - 1989). She was named after her mother Anna Sophie Dedekam Nilson (1862 - 1937), who was named after her mother Anna Sophie Dedekam (1838 - 1862), who was named after her paternal grandmother Anna Sophie Charesius (1778 - 1840). I also have a first cousin once removed called Anna Sophie.

Anna is derived from the Hebrew name Channah, which means grace/charm or mercy.

My family name means son of Aslak. Aslak is derived form the old Norse name Åslakr. Ås means god and lakr means play. So I'm the playmate of the Gods!

My four-great grandfather was Aslak Eriksen Herberg (1777-1827). His son was Edvard Andreas Aslaksen (1816 - 1892) and the family has used Aslaksen as a family name since then.

The first part of my Chinese name refers to California, in memory of Pappa's happy years at UC Berkeley while getting his Ph.D. between 1982 and 1988 and the sabbatical my parents spent there from 2004 to 2005. The second part of my name means snow. I was conceived when my parents were spending a semester at the University of Oslo, and it started snowing the day they discovered that I was on my way.

Here you can see some pictures from when I was born. Mamma is really brave!
