"Love it! When I was little I was called Kesha, as I got older I started to go by Lakesha, Now I'm Ms. Lakesha. All three are me 100%" Jan. 11, 2011:
"People always spell it and say it wrong. I am called Kesha for short, and there are lots of them around. When I was in high school, if you yelled Kesha in the hallway you get at least 10 responses. I have always liked my name. It was given to me by a homeless native american, meaning sparkling water, supposively." Oct. 11, 2010:

"I am elated to say that my name is Lakesha... Most often it is mispronounced as Lake-sha, especially by nonethnic components. I have not had anything but "great" experiences with my name. I am a Real Estate Executive in Florida and my name has often opened many doors of opportunity for me; as it strikes curiosity of meaning and intrigue by many. Just for the record, my name means "Joyful" in English and "Royalty / Princess" in Swahili. So what's not to love about it! I was born in 1969, growing up I have always felt so blessed to have this most beautiful and uniquely befitting name. So to all my fellow Lakeshas or 'Lake-shas'(smile)... "Girls hold your heads up and realize that you are the best of the best! Why? Because LAKESHA, your parents chose to name you amongst the BEST!"
Kisses to all my fellow joyful, happy and most royal Lakesha Sisters!" Jan. 21, 2010:
"LOL. I am LaKeshia G. also, (Gibson) from Akron OH. Small word. I was considering changing it because I am sick of being passed over for less qualified people in the work force. I believe I will shorten it to L. on my resume and when I sign papers. That is all." Oct. 13, 2009:

"My name is LaKesha..I love my name. When my mother named me, in the 80's, my name was elegant and proper, a classy name, but now-a-days its been thrown down the drain. People say it's ghetto, so sometimes I want to tell people a nickname to call me, but I AM PROUD of my name and refuse to potray it as a "GHETTO" name...I am far from ghetto so therefore I can bring something extra to the fellow LAKESHA name generation...sterotypes need to stop.."

"I have this name. People have thought this name very beautiful and have complimented me on it most of which are caucasian and a small amount of which are asian. I also, often, get laughed at (graciously light-hearted of course) by a majority of the african american community because it is mostly african american woman who have this or some version of this name. I am not african american nor do I have, as far as I am aware, any african american dissent. I am mixed and identify mainly with the caucasian community. I sometimes get a double or triple take accompanied with a hesitant expression when I must present identification. I do not look like anything close to a LaKeshia. Only those Russian/Slavic community have ever made me feel remotely comfortable with it. It has left me feeling rather conflicted and so I stopped using it in favor of my middle or last name, abbreviating my first only as 'L'. The name just doesn't feel like home." Oct. 13, 2007:

"My name is Lakesha and You go through alot being a "kesha" people spell my name wrong all the time. And not to many people around here share my name but there is one girl with my exact name first and last OMG! That was a horror in school" Oct. 22, 2008:
"I am also a Lakesha, only my name is spelled Lakeshia. I never really ran into trouble with the name as a child. As an adult, I have noticed that the name does carry a sterotype.
Armed with a great resume and applying for numerous postions (some of which I was over-qualified for),I found it hard to get so much as a call-back or email from potential employers. I've had more than a few employers tell me "your not what I expected" (based on past experience, my guess was they meant not ghetto enough). Antithetically amongst friends I am considered to be the "white girl" of the bunch. So based on a name I couldn't get a job and turns out I'm actually to be too white. You have to laugh, huh?"
