I can think of two famous bearers of this name: Asia Argento is an actress. Can't remember what movies she's been in, but I think I heard somewhere she was linked with Vin Diesel at one time. The other famous Asia is the porn star Asia Carrera, whose real name is Jessica Steinhauser. She is of Japanese ancestry and one of her claims to fame is she is a member of Mensa, the organization for high-IQ people.

Actress Penelope Cruz used to have a cat named Asia. My sister, who's a little snobbish, named our own cat Asia after Pe's cat, so for me, though it's a beautiful name, Asia is the name of an animal.
