Which name do you prefer?

Thank you smile

Noah, I'm not sure Asa is a name?

Asa sounds like a company? How is it pronounced, Ass-a?

For boys? I've only heard Aza (Ay-za) for a girl? Not sure how I'd pronounce Asa?

Asa is much nicer and less overused

Phebes Wed 23-Jan-19 20:47:21

Definitely Asa! Love it. Pronounced “AY-sah”

Asa. DH wouldn't let me use it!

Haha Asa is my husbands name!! He does have people (as demonstrated above!) who struggle to pronounce it, but if you prefer less popular names go for it. He’s always called Ace and I think that’s pretty cool, as I think he is ace 😉

Asa definitely. Noah is becoming really popular and seems a bit 'safe'

Noah, out of the two. I was a person who got teased at school and I can practically guarantee he will be called Ass at some point. I love the sound of Ace-a (if that's how you're pronouncing Asa) but in a way I almost think Acer would be a better option than Asa, just from the spelling point of view?

Acer is a brand of computer

Love Asa. I always suggest it! I’ve only ever taught one in 14 years of teaching.

Asa, mainly because I can't stand Noah.

Asa is lovely.

FlagFish Wed 23-Jan-19 22:25:16

This is a difficult choice in that one is very popular at the moment and the other is very obscure! Personally I’d go for something in the middle, but out of these two, I’d say Noah.

Sophronia Wed 23-Jan-19 23:36:41

Definitely Asa!

JacksonPillock Wed 23-Jan-19 23:43:59

Asa is cool and unusual without being trendy. Noah is overused and boring.

Picknickers Wed 23-Jan-19 23:44:32

Asa hands down.

I love Asa and had it on my list but DH vetoed sad
I used to really dislike Noah but it has grown on me a lot. Depends how brave you feel really- they’re both good names but as pp said very different in terms of familiarity.
Do either ‘go’ better with surname?

It's a lovely, gentle name.

MyFriendGoo5 Thu 24-Jan-19 07:47:26

Asa is also a biblical name, for anyone thinking it isn't a name.

It is.

Noah. It has always been one of my favourite names. Asa is a bit weird and kids will call him Ass.
