History of national asher day

Asher may appear to be a trendy and modern name, but it has been around for centuries. Asher was the name of one of Jacob’s twelve sons in the Bible, making it one of the most popular Christian names. Jacob is said to have described Asher as a “puppy in a world of cats,” while Moses blessed him with sons. Moreover, Asher also has Hebrew origins since it is derived from the Hebrew word ‘osher,’ which means ‘happiness.’ If you believe the meaning of a name transcends into one’s personality, you may be right! With Hebrew origins, it is no wonder the name is popular as a Jewish surname. Apart from the religious perspective, the name is used for an ash maker in Germany and is also assumed to be a form of the Old English surname ‘Æsċer.’ The meaning of the word literally translates into someone who lived by an ash tree.

Based on the data from the Social Security Administration, Asher has remained a popular name throughout the years. In fact, it was always in the top 50 list. This has been the case since the name became famous in 1983. In that year, it was in the top 1,000 names that people opted for in the U.S., and by 2014, Asher was in the top 100 names. In 2020, the name hit its peak popularity as it became the 32 most wanted name in the U.S.
