Which do you prefer and why?

Xavier - unless you pronounce it like X-Men! I think Ace is a cool NN for Asa but it sounds a bit like the computer brand, sorry!

Xavier would be pronounced Zay ve er with nn Xavi and Asa pronounced Ay sah with nn Ace smile

No just no.

I would assume Asa is a nickname for a girl but depends where you live and how common it is as to whether that's an issue. I like Xavier
Ace as a nn is horrid imo.

I much prefer Xavier, and Xavi is cute.

I know Asa is a boy's name, but it just looks girly to me. And I don't like Ace at all.

Xavier - cool, classic and strong.

Asa is a girls name in Sweden and I too find it sounds girly.

I can't stand Xavier and the pronounciation, pretentious.

Love Asa, really cool name. I've only ever known one Asa and he was a beautiful man smile

Asa? How would you pronounce it? Azza? Ayza? Ayssa?

Don't like it anyway. Makes me think of washing powder, or medication.

Xavier is a good name though.

Sorry, missed your pronunciation post.

I like both, but I'd love to see Asa used.

It seems they are both marmite names grin
