Asa Name Meaning
Japanese: variously written, sometimes with characters used phonetically. It can mean ‘morning’, but the most likely meaning is ‘hemp’, making it a topographic or occupational name. Both forms are found mostly in Amami, one of the Ryukyu Islands. Hungarian: from Assa, a pet form of the ecclesiastical personal name Asbót (see Oswald).
