I think the name Asher is great. I love the meaning of the name.

Two of Chaim Potoks novels are "My Name is Asher Lev" and its sequel, "The Gift of Asher Lev". I'm surprised this name isn't more popular, given that it has a great meaning, is practical and easy to spell, and is one of the 12 tribes. (Not that being one of the 12 tribes in itself guarantees popularity.) And I almost forgot to mention, we have a son named Asher who was born in 2002.

This name is so GORGEOUS! I love it. I wanted to name my son Gabriel Asher.

Pronounced ah-shehr, like "share" or "hair" but with a shorter sound.
-- Miss Claire  7/29/2006
I think this is one of those "off beat" biblical names that is going to skyrocket in the next few years.

I love this name. I've got 9 months to talk my husband into it.

I think Asher's a beautiful name for a boy, no matter how you pronounce it.

This is Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler's son's middle name. Landon Asher Barker.

It could also be a modern form of the Old English name "Æschere".

I love the name Asher. It's the name I gave my fourth daughter. I view it more as a girls name rather than a boys name.
-- LaVenna  7/28/2007
Anyone named Asher should be burnt into ash, it's a festy name. Sorry no offence but it's true.

In the Anita Blake series by Laurell K, Hamilton one of the lead characters is a vampire named Asher.

The main character from the books "The Innocent Mage" and "The Awakened Mage" by Karen Miller is named Asher. I think it's a great name.

I LOVE this name! If I ever have twin boys, I will name them Asher and Isaac. Not only do they sound good together, but the meanings are great: "Happy" and "Laughing".

The Hebrew prayer over the candles is:
baruch atah adonai eloheinu melch ha'olam ASHER kid'shanu b'mitzvotav vitzivanu l'hadlik ner shel (insert holiday here).
-- wicogirl8  6/12/2008
This is a great name. My wife and I chose the name Asher for our son because we loved the meaning "happy" and because it goes great with our last name.
-- fon_solo  8/8/2008
Great name, but it should only be used for boys. I think it definitely sounds masculine and would be really weird on a girl.
-- Anonymous User  8/8/2008
Asher is a beautiful name and it's great because The Giver is my favorite book. I want to use it as a second choice for a boy's name. My only worry is that it sounds like the type of name that might skyrocket very soon. And I wish it was a little more traditional. I like that in a boy's name.
-- LuzDeTuVida  8/10/2008
I absolutely adore this name. I plan to use it for my baby if it's a boy (expecting next July). The only problem is that the popularity is shooting up through the charts quickly. This happened with my daughter's name, too. Charlotte was still considered something of an "old lady name" over 13 years ago, but now it's in the top 100. With my luck Asher will be in 13-14 years, too. I hope it never makes it into the top 10!

All I can think of is Ash, played by Bruce Campbell, from the _Evil Dead_ series, although Ash is short for Ashley in that case. I don't like Asher for either a girl's or a boy's name. It sounds like someone who cleans up cigarette butts.

Asher is an ambiguous pronoun in Hebrew which can mean, depending on context, "that", "who", "which", or "where".

A famous bearer of this name is Asher Roth, the rapper of the song "I Love College". Hilarious song. :)
-- Rory.Nightingale  5/8/2009
As many people have mentioned, this is the name of a character from 'The Giver'. To the person wanting to name a son Gabriel Asher, I wanted to point out that Gabriel is also a character from 'The Giver' (he's the new child that Jonas' dad has to watch over, and Jonas eventually rescues from release). Anyway, this is a pretty nice name. It sounds like it could be used for a girl or a boy.
-- LittleMissWeekender  5/10/2009
Ruined by Asher Roth, and even then, I don't like it the same way I don't like 'Ashley'.
-- Aureliano  4/10/2010
That's like saying that the name Christina was ruined by Christina Aguilera...
-- Chrila96  9/3/2010
This is a gorgeous name. I would love to name my child this. It is, however, increasing in popularity.
-- Chrila96  8/29/2010
When I first read The Giver, I fell in love with the name Asher (as well as Fiona and Jonas).

Very nice boy's name - great meaning as well.
-- Anonymous User  6/24/2011
It's a stunning boy's name if you're into biblical names, as it sounds modern and has a great meaning.

I absolutely adore this name for a boy, unfortunately my parents saddled my older sister with this name and she's 22 and hasn't changed it and she won't change it.

A handsome, cute and sexy name for a guy! ヽ(*^∀゜*)ノ
