I'm sick of getting bad feedback on this name!
Everyone (mostly on YA answers..) assumes it's either a girl name or is pronounced AS*-UH and any little boy called Asa will be bullied relentlessly. The thing is, I love Asa. I love it just as much as Ada for a girl (though it kills me that I could never use both). Do you guys think it's usable?
Also, do you prefer August or Asa?Matilda, Beatrix, Lucille, Margo, Ivy, Guinevere, Isadora, Violet, Ada, Alice, Hermione, Cora, Elizabeth, Flora, Olive, Sybil, Isolde

I know Asa is a Bible name with a long history but I really don't care for it. In my opinion it's kinda hissy sounding, a bit insubstantial and way to close to @ss. I'm sorry, but I would not want my name to be Asa and I wouldn't use it for a first name. Maybe in the middle?
I much prefer August and Ada.

I like Asa, actually. I don't think Asa's any worse or more difficult than any other -a boys' name (Ezra, Jonah, Noah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Judah, Micah, etc.). Just more obscure, so people aren't quite so familiar with it. I think it's handsome. I much prefer Asa to Ada, but I do slightly prefer August to Asa (mainly because I adore Auggie and Gus!).
