uS means to burn, and uSas is the morning light or twilight in general (cognate to the first element in aurora). In Sanskrit, the particular feminine form uSasI I have heard particularized to the evening twilight only, but I doubt that is where the name came from: most likely it is a modern feminine from uSas, dawn, made to use as a woman's name.
