I was just enjoying checking up and surfing around when I saw the name Asma: "Means "appellations" or "prestige" in Arabic. She was the daughter of Abu Bakr, the first caliph of the Muslims."

Actually it would be better to be Asmaa instead of Asma because:
Asmaa: appellations
Asma: supreme
Now the most important thing is the Arabic spelling since you mentioned that in your definition. [noted -ed]

Not a very nice name in my opinion, because asma is the word for asthma in Portuguese (a condition from which I unfortunately suffer).

I was just going to say that this name reminded me of asthma.

Actually it's from أسماء meaning "names / appelations".

Asma Bint Shihab al-Sulayhiyya was the queen and co-ruler of Yemen in co-regency with her cousin and spouse, Ali al-Sulayhi, and later her son Ahmad al-Mukkaram, and daughter-in-law, Arwa al-Sulayhi, from 1047 until 1087. Her full title as sovereign, "al-Sayyida al-Hurrat-ul" translates to "The noble lady who is free and independent, the woman sovereign who bows to no superior authority". As female sovereign, Asma bint Shihab has an almost unique position in history: though there were more female monarchs in the international Muslim world, Asma bint Shihab and Arwa al-Sulayhi were the only female monarchs in the Muslim Arab world to have had the khutba proclaimed in their name in the mosques as sovereigns.
