I find six Nasset children born to Ole Aslakson b. 1823, Vinje, Norway, and Anna Hagerstrom, all in the late 1800s. Swemong, Aslak, Asbjorn, Andrew, Helga, and Annie. Does anyone have an answer as to the total transformation of the last name? The excellent article on the web site does not address this. Thanks very much.

Nesset [Næset] would most likely be the farmname in Vinje, Telemark where Ole Aslaksen lived his adult life.
Christening record #4, 1824 here
NB: Ole's wife is here listed as Anne Asbjørnsdtr Teigen

I think the origin of Nesset in Vinje was Næset, almost same pronunciation.
Aslakson was Aslaksen in Norway.

Hagerstrøm sounds Swedish.
The children In Norwegian, most likely; Sveinong, Asbjørn, Aslak, Anders, Helga and Annie.
