This is the name of a song Jews sing on Sabbath. This song is about Moses delivering the Hebrews from pharoah.

The name Asherah meant "She who walks in the sea." It also is a goddess name so it probably is a goddess of the sea.

What a beautiful name! And meaning! I'd never heard it before, and I am really into Mythology! Asherah! That is beautiful!

I love this name! It's so pretty! I'm using this for a fan-character!

Pronounced uh-SHAYR-a or aw-SHAYR-a.

Don't know if this has any significance with the name but ashera is the Arabic word for the number 10. I just thought that was interesting.

The Arabic word for 'tenth' is ashura.

Whoever said that the pronunciation was uh-SHAYR-a or aw-SHAYR-a, is incorrect.

The correct pronunciation of this name is uh-SHEER-uh, with a long 'e' sound in the middle instead of a long 'a'.

Israelites are monotheistic. They have ONE god. There was never a goddess.

This name is often taken to mean "lady of the sea" and the goddess was an ancient Semitic deity that preceded Hebrew monotheism. [noted -ed]

This is such a beautiful name; I'm blown away by it. I don't know how it'd be used, though. Character? A real person? I don't know, I just want to hear it more.

I love the meaning of this name! I feel that it would suit anyone from a small toddler to a greying elder. Asherah flows well as a name and isn't at all overused. I do prefer the name 'Ashira' but only by one syllable. I wouldn't name my child Asherah but I would suggest it to others.
My favourite combinations for Asherah:
Iris Asherah
Asherah Thomasin
Asherah Wilmot
Ivy Asherah
Evie Asherah
Caroline Asherah.
