The downside of this name is the pronunciation. However, I know a girl by this name, and I've never seen anyone torment her about it, surprisingly. Besides that, I feel like your childhood days would be very difficult to say the least, especially if you have asthma lol. But I have once been told that it was pronounced (Ass-Mah) with the first syllable accentuated.
