"Hello all! My name is Lakeisha but I typically go by Keisha. I was born in the Bronx and it was pretty popular there, then I moved to Baltimore as a teen and it was just as popular. I used to dislike my name because of other people's reaction to it. Growing up, when meeting a guy, his face would change like 'Ohhhhhh your name is Keisha??? I bet you're hood, or crazy or would beat a b*tch azz!. I'm like really? You got all that from a name? Then I realized that I wasnt going to allow someone else's perceptions about me determine whether or not I would be proud of my name. I'm not ashamed of my name and in fact, I loooooooove my name (but that took time, personal growth and maturity). At the end of the day, I am not ghetto (but dont try me) and I am not uneducated (I'm in graduate school for School Psychology). When I meet people, they can plainly 'see' that I am black so why would I care if they know that I am black from my name when I'm sending out my resume? If I am judged on that alone, then that is not the company for me. I actually enjoy breaking the stereotype and that's what I enjoy most about my name. Changing people's perceptions of Lakeisha to something more positive." Oct. 19, 2015:
"Hi my name is Lakesha..I love my name so much. And I know this may sound weird but I love the fact that it doesn't have an I in it. But people always spell it with an I or two E's. Technically I spell my name wrong as well. It's really supposed to be written like this: La-Kesha. But that is so much work lol. Oh well I should start writing it like that =) I have gotten so many nicknames it's ridiculous but really awesome! =) And hello to all of the other Lakeisha's, Lakeesha's, and Lakeisha's in the world. (or however you spell it..it's still beautiful) lol =) I love you all!" May. 21, 2010:

"To answer the question posted Jun 20, 2007, no LaKeisha is not African in origin. It has Semitic origins, specifically Hebrew, and thus there are variations in Arabic and Arabic-mixed languages such as Swahili." Oct. 27, 2008:

"I love my name. It fits me perfectly... I have met people with similar names. But not many named Lakeisha and spelled the way mine is Lakeisha" Apr. 2, 2008:
"I love my name because it is biblical in origin. It is derived from the name "Kezia", one of Job's daughters, and it means 'cinnamon'. Traditionally, parents named their children after biblical characters and a review of census records demonstrates how the name transformed over time from Kezia to Keesha to, ultimately, Keisha and many other diverse spellings. The French prefix żLaż was first added by free people of color in Louisiana and has become a popular trend among African Americans. It is unfortunate, however, that after so many centuries this beautiful name has come to be associated with the less than attractive personality of "ghetto" individuals." Jul. 11, 2007:

"To Dec 16, 2008 poster, if your name does not suit you it has nothing to do with your race. In the US, few of us are Jewish or Arabic, and yet it is our name and we are proud of it. I don't feel "type cast" because of it either, unlike the Oct 09, 2008 poster. LaKeisha is a beautiful name. Those who feel type cast are insecure to begin with. I have never had a problem, and mine is one of the top ten professions in the world. Nov 30, 2007 poster, our name is not spelled wrong. I before E, except after C?? Tell that to Sheila, Keith, and Leigh." Jan. 15, 2009:

"Over the years I have come to terms with my name. Since I was a girl I have known many forms of "Keisha". Where I grew up it was a very popular name and would hear it called everywhere I go. Eveyone spells it wrong even family members because of the various ways of spelling it. The only problem I have with it is like some of the others have said I feel "type cast" with this name. People think of a loud gehetto black girl. I even had an ocurrence where I left a message for a person sight unseen and when he called my office back he requested to speak with a black girl named Keisha. The funny part was I was not the only person named Keisha in the office at that time. But... I do know of a white girl when I was younger who was named Keisha so I know of at least one who is not black.(LOL)" Oct. 9, 2008:
