What's in a name?


In the Bible, Asher was the 8th son of Jacob. In Hebrew, Asher means Happy. Asher also means fortunate, blessed, lucky. For all these reasons, we named our son Asher. It is also not a common name, so we were hoping he would be the only one in his class. Right?

A few days ago I received the Restoration Hardware Baby catalog. This is what I found:;jsessionid=5LOXPMHIMEBDTLAWCQKB5VVMCYKBSH54?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&query=asher&_D%3Aquery=+&hidden=&_D%3Ago=+&_DARGS=%2Frhbc%2Fincludes%2Fnav%2Ff_header.jsp.searchform&go.x=0&go.y=0

Um, what is up with that? There goes all the thought that went into our baby boy's name. To us, there is only ONE Asher Wade, and he is not a piece of furniture!
