Please help!! My name is Achsha. Pronounced Asha, the ch is silent. When my mother was pregnent she saw the name Asha and thought it was pretty, she didnt know anything about the origin of the name, she just liked different names. When filling out my birth certificate months later she forgot the correct spelling and spelt it Achsha. I came to find out that Asha is Sanscrit and means life, but when I did a search on google for Achsha it accually came up! There were several people with my name dating back to the 1700-1800s. I am not sure the gender of these people, I tend to assume it may be a biblical name because of the time period, but I may be way off. It would mean so much to me to know the real meaning of my name. Any help is greatly appreciated!!Thanks!
