Seaswept Middles for Asa?

Lately, I’ve gotten it into my head that a sea swept middle for [name_u]Asa[/name_u] might be just what I’m looking for; [name_u]Asa[/name_u] David’s my current combo, but it feels rather bland to me and I’ve not found something else I like better. I’m thinking driftwood and ocean waves and abandoned beaches and shipwrecked islands… it doesn’t need to be a word name, but I’m not opposed to it.

So far, all I’ve got is [name_u]Asa[/name_u] Seaborne, but I’m not entirely convinced. I think it’s along the right lines, though. Any combo ideas that feel like [name_u]Asa[/name_u] Seaborne?

Thanks, berries!

I absolutely love [name_u]Asa[/name_u] and the use of a sea name for a middle.

Seabert → shining sea
Seabrook → from the brook by the sea; stream near the sea
Seafarer → explorer of the sea
Sewall or [name_m]Sewell[/name_m] → powerful sea; sea wall; sea

[name_u]Asa[/name_u] Seaborne is gorgeous. Also this is because I’m rereading A Song of [name_u]Ice[/name_u] and [name_u]Fire[/name_u] currently but maybe [name_u]Asa[/name_u] Seaworth? It’s a character’s surname in the books and I’ve always found it sounds very cool.

What about [name_u]Asa[/name_u] Brontide?
Brontide: a low muffled sound like distant thunder heard in certain seismic regions especially along seacoasts and over lakes and thought to be caused by feeble earth tremors.

I liked [name_u]Asa[/name_u] [name_m]Caspian[/name_m] and [name_u]Asa[/name_u] [name_u]Sailor[/name_u] a lot, too, but neither felt 100% right. Anyone have any additional suggestions, or favorites from these? Clearly, I seem to like “C”, “D”, and “S” middles for [name_u]Asa[/name_u] lol.

Thank you again!

Thank you! I rather like [name_u]Asa[/name_u] [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m], too! I’ll have to add him to the list. [name_u]Asa[/name_u] Bering is fascinating… not sure it’s namey enough for me, but I do like the idea of him!

I think this is my updated list, after sitting on these for a bit:

[name_u]Asa[/name_u] Bering
[name_u]Asa[/name_u] [name_m]Cousteau[/name_m]
[name_u]Asa[/name_u] [name_m]Drake[/name_m]
[name_u]Asa[/name_u] Driftwood

[name_u]Asa[/name_u] Seagazer
[name_u]Asa[/name_u] [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m]
[name_u]Asa[/name_u] [name_u]Shalom[/name_u]

I’m leaning toward using [name_u]Grey[/name_u] or [name_u]Gabriel[/name_u] as the second middle, to honor my grandma (her initials were AG).
