 Ash·er /ˈæʃɚ/

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Asher
    happy, Jacob's eigth son; his mother was Zilpah, Leah's handmaid
    (Gen. 30:13). Of the tribe founded by him nothing is recorded
    beyond its holding a place in the list of the tribes (35:26;
    46:17; Ex. 1:4, etc.) It increased in numbers twenty-nine
    percent, during the thirty-eight years' wanderings. The place of
    this tribe during the march through the desert was between Dan
    and Naphtali (Num. 2:27). The boundaries of the inheritance
    given to it, which contained some of the richest soil in
    Palestine, and the names of its towns, are recorded in Josh.
    19:24-31; Judg. 1:31, 32. Asher and Simeon were the only tribes
    west of the Jordan which furnished no hero or judge for the
    nation. Anna the prophetess was of this tribe (Luke 2:36).

From: Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)

 Asher, happiness
