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!

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.
