"fortunate, blessed, happy one"

Asher Origin and Meaning

The name Asher is a girl's name meaning "fortunate, blessed, happy one".

Asher is of course a very popular Biblical boys' name, but Australian actress Asher Keddie puts this in the girls' column too. Nearly 70 baby girls were named Asher in one recent year, about 1 percent of the total babies given the name. But if you've always loved Ashley and fear that now it's outdated, you might look to Asher as a worthy substitute.
