Thread: Yes, for a girl...
June 22nd, 2013 01:17 AM #6
Asa is my top choice for a boy, so I love it. I've seen it used on girls too, and I suppose it could work- but I think it's works better on a boy. I'm just not a fan of Rhys, Reese or Reece. I just don't like it for either sex. August (my second choice) is all boy to me. I love it, but I can't see it on a girl. Augusta is nice though.Under construction...

August and Rhys I could actually see on a girl. I do prefer Reese for a girl, but they're pronounced the same. One word of warning with Asa (and Asher, too) is that they are both Biblical names. I've seen a number of posts as to why Jews may be offended by the use of Cohen... In the most respectful way that I can say this, it could be quite offensive to religious people if you name your daughter after a man in the Bible. I'd recommend Aysa, which is pronounced the same... but might be a tad less offensive.Currently exiled from the US

Definitely not Augusta, it's a whole different image and feel to me.
We're atheists, and with that statement alone I've probably offended a few religious people. Can't say I'm not used to it, but it's never something I intend to do. I meant does Asa appear too Bible-y, like the names Ezekiel, Abel, etc. are so strongly tied to the Bible?My cherished daughter, Rowan Jane. ~b. 10/2011~

IMO, Asa is very Biblical, like Ezekiel, Abel, Job, Ezra...they are not common enough to overcome the Christian overtone. I do like tfzolghadr's suggestion of Aysa - the 'y' makes the name feel more exotic and international.
Not a fan of Reese/Rhys/Reece, seems a bit flimsy. Plus, you'd have two names that begin with 'R'.
Of the three, I'd go with August.
