  1. We love the story of King Asa in the Bible, how he loved and served the Lord with his whole heart even though no one else was. We want Asa to do what’s right in the Lords eyes even if the culture around us is doing something else

  2. It paired well with my first son’s name (Asher). I like the meaning – healer and it’s an Old Testament name like my first son’s name.

  3. We love that Asa was a good king of the Bible. Most people have not heard that name so it is often said wrong. It is becoming more popular though, as we have met 5 other Asa’s now.

  4. We chose Asa because we wanted a short name, since we were hyphenating last names. We both knew men named Asa in the past and thought it was a good choice.

    I like that it’s short and lets me call him lots of nice names (Ace, Asa Base, Asa Spaces, etc.) but it’s frustrating that people can’t pronounce it. Ay-sah. We get a lot of Az-ah pronunciations.
