There's a character in the anime series "Neon Genesis Evangelion" named this, she's very annoying and independent but that's only to hide her insecurities.

Very nice name.

"ka" would be better translated as fragrance than smell as it's generally meant to refer to a good smell rather than just any smell.

Also, many other kanji possibilities are available for Asuka.

It's a very pretty name, but all I can think of is Shinji completely coming apart.

This is my name! When we visit Japan, there are loads of little girls called Asuka, but here there aren't any at all! It has its ups and downs. It's pretty, but people never know how to pronounce it!

Pronounced "ahs-kah". The "u" is silent.

In Senran Kagura one of the main characters is named Asuka. She's a really cheerful girl but that's kind of to hide her fear of not being able to live up to her grandpa's legacy as a good shinobi.
