  • "Hi my name is also Kecia (pronounced Keh-see-uh). I was born in 1967 and also named after the model. I live in Canada and my parents saw her on tv. I hated my name as a child as everyone mispronounced it and most girls had common names but I love it now!" May. 21, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "Gotta love the Internet :) ...My name is Kecia, pronounced "KEY-sha"; I'm African-American and I was born in 1965. Not counting the Scandinavian model I was named after, I have never met anyone with my exact name who's older than me. Reading these comments, I see older Kecias exist! Also, I love that there were 559 of us born in 1965. :) I've never had any issues with my name aside from the fact that I always have to spell it with a heavy stress on the C ("Kay. Ee. CEEEEEE. Eye. Ay."). The other spellings are so much more common now that occasionally I'll get "Oh, THAT'S different" from people. I love my name!" Apr. 28, 2014: Report as inappropriate

She thought the spelling was beautiful and saved that name until she had her first child. "ME". I love my name I run into women every now and then with the same spelling white and black. I even named my son Kecion (kee shon)." Jan. 21, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "Hi I'm Kecia born in USA the funny part the name came from Finland...the model who introduced the name was white not black but, people are so into race but, prejudice comes from within its not about the color of your skin.. I'm an Artist, I listened & read so expressions are what this world needs. Everyone representing a name that means Great Joy! So by enjoying life and accepting a famous name it's no way you should feel ashamed its pronounced another way I'm happy it's a different flavor you can say it your way but, I'm a few months from 50' so I'm celebrating things my way!

  • "Kecia (Keesha)is my name, I was born in 1974, my mom named me after after a little girl she used to babysit when she was 13yrs old and always said if she had a daughter that she would name her Kecia. I grew up thinking I was one of the only two Kecia's in the entire world until high school when I met a Keisha. Even though it was spelled different I thought it was the coolest thing. The bad thing about having a unique name growing up is that you could never find pencils or keychains or tiny license plates with your name on them, but now as an adult I love that my name is so rare and yes I also get the occasional weird look that my name is Kecia and I'm not african american."

  • "I am white, have hazel eyes and blond hair. I was born in February 1964 and am 47 years old. I am of Scandinavian/German/Dutch descent. My maiden name was Aarhus - second largest city in Denmark. My name is pronounced Kay-sha. Most people mispronounce it these days. Funny, when I was younger, people did not seem to have as much trouble with the pronunciation and thought it was a unique name. Now a lot of times people look at me strange when they hear it - they expect me to be African-American and not white. Still I like my name very much. I cannot imagine being named any other name. When I have looked up a meaning of the name I have found that it can mean "great joy" or "favorite child"." Oct. 10, 2011: Report as inappropriate

For the first 8 years of school I allowed my teachers to call me Kee-sha. But my mother always pronounced my name as Kee-SA. I am still learning to correct others when they mispronounce it. Now my kids even correct people. The greatest honor was when a college classmate named her daughter after me, and later one of my colleagues asked if she could do the same when she was expecting. I have learned to love my name and its uniqueness. It is part of what makes me me. Thank you all for sharing." Apr. 3, 2011: Report as inappropriate

On the "correct" pronunciation: there are just possibilities, it's subjective based on what your parents or whomever named you, wants to pronounce it. My mom pronounced it Key-sha. But most people want to say Kee-shia or Keece-e-ya. I am 36 and I've made some friends on FB based on our name. I thought it was very, very rare.

I have heard a variety of meanings behind the name. Lots of Hungarian people have told me it means "rain" (that spelling in particular) and so I've heard that explanation often enough to believe them. But: A Russian boy told me it means "kitten." A Finnish woman told me it means "peach" in her language. When I visited Japan, people laughed at hearing my name, because there is a popular children's song about a train: "Kee-sha, kee-sha, shuppa, shuppa, shuppa, shuppa, shup-po-po!" I guess Kecia means train in Japanese! My roommate's Italian mother never called me by name for years, until she revealed that in Sicilian slang, Kecia means "B*tch." "Keziah" is also a biblical name, from the same root as "cassia," which is affiliated with the scientific name for cinnamon. I was introduced to a young African-American woman a few years ago who was deeply offended by my name. "That's a BLACK name!" she said, as though my mother had misappropriated it.

  • "Hello!! My name is Kecia (pronounced Key-sha). I was born Nov 3,1969. I am caucasion. When people have seen my name in writing and then meet me in person, they say, " Oh, your're white." Yes, most people mispell and mispronounce it all the time! When someone does get it right I am amazed. My Mom told me she heard the name while pregnant. She said it was a Scandinavian Olympic skier. So who knows. Surprisingly, people ask how to spell my last name and not my first name because they assume they know how to spell. My maiden last name was House and my married name is Blue--go figure!!! I like having an unusual name." Feb. 6, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "Hi, My name is Kecia. I rarely meet others with my name and never witht the spelling correct. My favorite momento about my name is when a black friend told me that I had a "black girl's name." I asked him now who is biased?" Dec. 30, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "I was born in 1965 and was given the name Kecia from a Scandinavian model named Kecia Neiman, who appeared in Cover Girl make-up commercials in 1965. I was told it was pronounced 'key-sha' because that is how the model pronounced it when she said her name on TV. I have an uncle (in-law) from Belgium who told me that it use to be a fairly common name when he was young in Belgium. I've since named three of my own children and always try to look up the meaning/origin of the name Kecia in all those name books. Kecia is invariably referred to as a derivative of Keisha, which they list as an african princess name. The Keesha/Lakeisha name incidentally became popular in America in the decades that followed this first wave of the use of the name Kecia (named after the model on TV). I guess the next group didn't know how it was spelled because they no longer ran those commercials. They, actually, may have gotten it from a friend who got it from the model and wanted to spell it a little different. It wouldn't be the first time television influenced the names we give our children. I always wished there had been more significance behind my given name than "I got it from TV." It was not even the name of a character from any particular program. It was from a commercial, no less. Nevertheless, it is my name and it is up to all of us Kecias/Lakeishas/Keeshas and however you want to spell it to set our own definition of the name for future name books."

Yes, my name is often mispronounced and I only know of three girls with the same name; which are family members named after me. I am African American, born in August of 1968."

  • "Well, my name is Kecia, also. I am caucasian, and it is properly pronounced Key-c-a. I was named after Kecia Neiman (sp?) who was modeling in 1965. I don't like having a different name! Everytime I meet someone, I have to explain where, why, how I got the name. Ack!" Aug. 14, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Kecia as well. Most people I meet say "Is your name Key-sha?" When I respond yes they tell me that is a pretty spelling. When people try to tell me that is not how you spell Key-sha, I remind them about the pronunciations of "Tricia" or "Alicia."" Jun. 14, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "my name is Kecia and I was named after my aunts friend Kecia. This spelling of my name originated in Sweden, I was told. People ask me all the time, "How do you pronounce your name". It can get annoying at times." May. 5, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Kecia as well, but actually I did not know the correct pronunciation until I was a teenager. My situation is quite the opposite from the other submission. I learned that Kesha or Keesha is one name, while Kecia is pronounced differently. Now I enjoy it when it is pronounced Key-c-a. Although I did have one guy ask for my name and when I did he asked, "Did you say Kiss me." Go figure. I think he just had issues" Jan. 19, 2006: Report as inappropriate
