A rare male first name. There are very few Ashers in the U.S., although it is popular in Arabian countries. Ashers' are: wise, creative, strong, and friendly. People named Asher are affectionate, seek harmony, and virtuous- with single mindedness they strive only for the general good. Asher's are extremely good looking and attractive in nature, possessing a certain charism. Very inquisitive and full of energy, Ashers' are unique and special people. Ashers' possess a spirit of determination and strong will.

Asher is also a place in Israel

Meaning: happy, blessed, fortunate, or lucky.


Origin: Hebrew

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

1. "What is your sons name?"
"Oh, I love the name Ashton!"
"no, AshER."

2. "That was pretty daring of you, you must be feeling Asher today."

A common boys name in israel but when its used for a girl it gives her such a unique vibe that goes with her everywhere she walks and always makes her stand out to everyone. She will probably be somewhere dancing or making a fool of herself. She always appreciates her friends and her friends appreciate her. She isn't one you want to let go of, but come one i mean who would willingly let go of one of the prettiest, funniest, nicest and coolest girls out there. so if you meet and Asher remember not to let go of her because she will always love you no matter what mistakes you make. Always believe in her even if she comes off as slightly strange because shes special.
Boy 1: Ok I just saw some random girl dancing like crazy over there!
Boy 2: Was she pretty?
Boy 1: She must be an Asher :)
