The name Asia for a girl first appeared in 1945. It was used sparingly until the 1980s, when it took off in popularity, reaching its peak in the late 1990s-early 2000s. In that time, it may have gotten a boost from the rise to fame of actor Asia Argento (born Aria Asia Maria Vittoria Rossa Argento in 1976).
