Each time I hear this name I think of Pokemon.

When I have a son I will call him Ash. This name is "uber cool"!

Though it's spelled differently, one of the playable characters in Final Fantasy XII is named Ashe, short for Ashelia.

Can be used as a nickname for Asher, I've never heard it for a girl.

When my mom is calling my sister Ashley across the house, a lot of times she calls her Ash. I think this is a pretty cool nickname.

I could never think of the name "Ash" and separate it from the Pokemon character.

Too close to ass.

Aside from all the associations people have with video games, this is quite a nice name that I think is a bit underused, at least where I live.

I do not think it well-suited to a girl, though I tend to think of Ashley as a masculine name, despite all the times I have seen it used as a girl's name. I think it quite odd how young girls are given boy's names so often.

I'm not against using nouns as names, as many names are nouns in another language, or are derived from nouns in other languages, or even from a noun of the language the bearer speaks, but this sounds a bit weird as a name. Many people will assume it's short for Ashton or Ashley. It doesn't sound very mature on a grown-up. If you're going to use it, I'd say the name is better for a boy than a girl, but I don't really like this as a real name.

This isn't a real name.
gio2475  5/26/2008
A friend of mine has this as a nickname. It's short for Ashiana.

I think this name is cute, though I do associate it with Pokemon.

I hate this name. It makes me think of that irritating Pokémon character Ash Ketchum.
bananarama  8/29/2008
Can be short for Ashton.

If I heard of someone called this I'd be like 'hey you like Pokemon' without helping it.

Ash is the nickname of Aishwarya Rai.

Ash is the name of the title character's son in Wes Anderson's film adaptation of Dahl's 'The Fantastic Mr Fox'. He's voiced by Jason Schwartzman.

Ash is a really nice name for a boy, I also knew a girl called Ashlin at school, who was often nicknamed 'Ash'.
Danau  1/8/2010
It's cool but all I think of when I hear this name is Ash Ketchum from Pokemon as I used to watch it all the time!
― Anonymous User  1/25/2010
This name is okay but I only like it for boys. I think it would be good as a nickname for boys named Ashton.

Ash is also a short form of Ashleigh, Asher and Ashton which are a just as common as Ashley.
Asher  9/1/2010
This is pronounced the exact same way to a Norwegian word that means 'ew'. But I love it when I keep it out of my mind.
― Anonymous User  12/14/2010
Cute. But it does scream "Pokemon!" (gotta catch 'em all!... sorry). This can also be a nickname for Aisling (when it's pronounced CORRECTLY, a.k.a ASH-ling).
blondieboo629  12/5/2011
This would make a nice middle name for a boy. Also, Daniel Ash, singer and guitarist from Love and Rockets.
dimitridominic  6/1/2012
Like it better for a girl but sure sounds like pokemon. still love it, might use it.

Ash Tallyn is a character in The Iron Fey series written by Julie Kagawa.

I think that this name is really nice for a boy and also for a pet gerbil it would do:)
And that name sure makes my heart sing (especially the theme song of the first pokemon season).
rtlerer  4/15/2014
Oh, golly, I'll always love this name! It's handsome and awesome for a guy! :D Ash Ketchum will forever be the first thing I think of whenever I hear this name but I don't mind. :)
― Anonymous User  10/13/2014
Nah, sounds too much like Pokemon for me. I would hate this name.

I have an Indian friend called Ashish who shortens it to this though.
Foxtrot53  1/4/2015
Easy spelling, one syllable (can't be shortened to anything you may not like) and handsome.
Espy  4/14/2015
This name doesn't even sound remotely feminine. I do think it could make an interesting male name though, only if it's used as a nickname for Asher or Ashton.
― Anonymous User  4/4/2016
The name Ash was given to 98 boys born in the US in 2015.

Mary Kay Ash is the founder of the Mary Kay beauty company. Ash Adams is a film producer, Ash King is a musician, Ash Power is a war hero, Ash Stymest is a model and dates Johnnie Depp's daughter, Ash London is a radio host, Ash Wednesday would be good day to name someone Ash. Glen Ash was a war hero, comedian and actor in the 60s and 70s. Ash Bharj is a Bollywood star, the sitcom twins Mary Kate and Ashley, and James Ash of the band Rogue Traders,\.

I love this name! It sounds strong, but a little spunky and fun. My husband and I are thinking of naming our son this.
― Anonymous User  8/21/2016
Also short form of Asher.
heyyyyyyyyyyyy  1/28/2017
I alternately use Ashe as a more feminine look on my nickname. My birthname is Ashley.
DreamsoftheDistorted  6/5/2017
Ash doesn't sound feminine at all. Besides that I actually think Ash is a cool name/nickname and I think it's suitable for a dog too.
Luvbug86  6/9/2017
My name is Ashley and I am female. Personally, I don't like being called "Ash".
