happy

ORIGIN:Hebrew
POPULARITY:63
The Puritans were among the first to dust off this biblical name and introduce it to the English-speaking world. The happy meaning, the soft falling sound of Ash at the beginning and the trendy –er at the finish have helped propel the gentlemanly Asher to become a more approachable choice. In the Bible, Asher was the eighth son of Jacob and promised a life of blessings and abundance. Today, Asher is more popular than ever, propelling its way to the top 100 and beyond.
