Asa is also a letter in the Runic alphabet. It kind of looks like a capital F with it's two horizontal lines sloping. The meaning of this rune is "sign, spirit-like".

I like this name very much. It is strong, sensitive, sensible, and handsome. Also, I like that it is biblical. I would definitely name a boy "Asa".

Asa is one of the kids in the movie Rock School (not the one with Jack Black, that's School of Rock).

I would pronounce this name with the "A" rhyming with "Hay." I love this name!

To me, Asa sounds like a reasonable man. He is not easily agitated and he stands by his convictions.

I wouldn't use this. It looks hard to pronounce and someone with this name might be called "ass". Plus, it sounds more like the name of an old man than a young boy.

I recently met a little boy named this. My friend mistook it for 'Mason', the boy's grandfather spelled it for us a-s-a. So they pronounce it AY-suh :)

I think Asa is a good strong reasonable name. How people could mistake such a simple but powerful name for another is beyond me. The pronunciation is rather straight forward and anyone who would use an insult such as what was suggested above would be an immature fool.

"Asa" in Japanese (pronounced "AH-sah") means "morning." When used as a name, it is feminine.

Such a short name that caries a mighty amount of strength. I prefer the Anglicized pronunciation with the long A.
Tiger Lilly  6/17/2013
I'm not a huge fan of this name. It's not common enough where a whole lot of people would know how to pronounce it upon seeing it. Plus, this name sounds extremely feminine and looks and sounds too much like the popular female name Ava. If you're looking for a masculine name with the same feel as Asa, why not Ace?

I love the name Asa! It's soft and strong at the same time. Also Ace is a great nickname.

Asa Earl Carter - Ku Klux Klan leader, segregationist speech writer, and later famed western novelist.

Not a name I'd use, to be honest.

Asa Butterfield, he is an actor who played Ender Wiggin in Ender's Game.

The name "Asa" is also used in Latin, meaning "the smallest" or "ace." The meanings are the same, as "ace" used to mean the smallest of things- think about how you put the cards 1, 2, 3, et cetera, on top of the ace card whilst playing Klondike/Solitaire.

When I see that name, I initially think of a Japanese-American (female might I add) porn star named Asa Akira.
