Biblical: Asher in the Old Testament was the son of Jacob (his 8th son) and Leah's handmaid Zilpah (her 2nd son) and was the ancestor of one of the twelve tribes of Israel. Asher was promised a life blessed with abundance.

The name was brought into English by the Puritans.

In the past critical scholars conjectured that the name referred to a male counterpart of the goddess Asherah with a name cognate to the Assyrian god Ashur although no evidence of such a deity has been found and the latter name is derived from a different root
