... as a brother for Georgina?

Too popular. I know a brimful of them.

Love it! Would use it but we already have a Joseph and that would be 2 of Jacob's sons in the Bible - and we're not at all religious!

BreeVDKamp Wed 12-Aug-15 20:50:53

[scatter] I just got it!

BreeVDKamp Wed 12-Aug-15 20:51:10

Oops. I meant grin scatter!

Makes me think of Jane

I like it. I don't know any in RL.

I love this name

To me Georgina sounds very British and Asher sounds more exotic.

Love it.

Sorry Lavender why does it make you think of me?

I am not keen on the idea of naming a boy as Asher. (Or a girl!)

I love the name (it's what we chose for our lovely DS). It means "happy, blessed". It is unusual, clearly Hebrew / Biblical, but completely manageable for English-speakers, unlike, say Yoel or Nechama (the latter is a girl's name). I agree that it's an unusual choice next to Georgina.

I know two - both American boys..... I like it, but did think it very unusual the fist time I heard it.

Great name but agree about the not going with Georgina. Names not going doesn't matter to everyone though.

Makes me think of the Christian bakery chain in Northern Ireland that was in the news recently - hadn't realised it was a biblical name & assumed it was their family surname blush

Because of Jane Asher.

I am very old.

VixxFace Wed 12-Aug-15 21:41:32

I love it.

VixxFace Wed 12-Aug-15 21:41:44

I love it.

LOVE it.

Works for my DS �� Agree it might it go w Georgina though

Dixiebell Wed 12-Aug-15 22:51:25

I thought it was a girls' name! In fact I know a female one. But see it could work for both. I like it.

It'll cost you more than a dollar to eat here. But you won't need to eat anything else for the rest of the day....

Well, that message appeared on entirely the wrong thread!

Only if you really like Ash too as you can bet it would get shortened
