"My name is Asha Mueller. I think that the name is unique because I have never met anyone else names Asha. I live names that are different to what I'm used to." Sep. 13, 2019:
"My daughters name is Asha. Anyone named Asha in my case has been super kind,selfless and of course hopeful. Not to many times but maybe a little more rare than common she comes home from school and says her sub teacher called her Asha (Āsha)" Nov. 28, 2016:
"My name is Asha Nicole and my sister is Meika Daniel. The same reasons we were not fond of our names growing up are the same reasons we love our names now." Jun. 2, 2009:
"My late-Husband and I chose "Aisha" (pronounced 'Ay-sha') and "Makena" (pronounced 'Mah-kena') in 1997 for our twin daughters born in 2001 because it meant "Life" in Swahili and because we were married in Makena, Maui :O) I named my youngest daughter "Keidyn" (pronounced 'Key-din') in 2004.. I absolutely ~love~ their names :O)" Jul. 26, 2008:
"Asha means 'hope' in the Indian language Hindu and 'life' in an African language...Swahili I think.
I had a friend called Asha as I was growing up. She was a beautiful girl inwardly and outwardly, and so her name was associated with beauty to me.
When I had my own daughter, I naturally called her Asha.
People do often spell it incorrectly, spelling it Asher. Asher is a male name and in Hebrew it means 'Happy'." Oct. 29, 2006:

"My name is Asha and I love my name because it's unique. It does get frustrating when people don't pronounce it correctly though. A lot of people pronounce it "Osha" or "Ashly" or even avery once in awhile "Ash" I usually have to say that the beginning of the name starts with A as in Apple. Although it is fun to have such a unique name! I overall recommend it if you like to be different like me!" Jul. 17, 2020:
"While I love my name Asha, it does get frustrating having to correct people when they get it wrong. It?s been pronounced ?Osha,? ?Ashley?, even Ash (like an ashtray) A. Sometimes I would get an attitude correcting people and vowed to name my child something easy to pronounce. But I have come to realize that 4 letters is easy and that it?s just a unique name.."
