Easton's Bible Dictionary
Ashkenaz

One of the three sons of Gomer (Genesis 10:3), and founder of one of the tribes of the Japhetic race. They are mentioned in connection with Minni and Ararat, and hence their original seat must have been in Armenia (Jeremiah 51:27), probably near the Black Sea, which, from their founder, was first called Axenus, and afterwards the Euxine.

Smith's Bible Dictionary
Ashkenaz

(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.
