Asher actually is my name. or at least was on my original birth certificate.
In the bible it is notated to mean "Happy" (I think in hebrew, not sure)
Delampyr is a bastardization of Del Lampyr or "The Lampyr" which is one of the many mythological names for vampires.
therefore my name literally translates (at least to me) as "Happy, The Vampire"
as one of the only goths I knew who smiled or had a sense of humor, it always seemed somehow appropriate as a teen, and when I grew up I didn't feel like going through the hassle of changing it.
