  • "My name is KEISHA. I am 22 and African American. My name is Pronounced as, ?Key-shuh.? And yes, every single substitute teacher I had in school pronounced it as that white singer with the same name but weird pronouciation lol. Everybody in middle school called me, Keyshia Cole lol. I like this name because like others, it?s unique and I?ve only came into contact on social media with a couple. A girl at my elementary school that I had classes with actually had the same name as me and coincidentally, my mom knew her mom before we even knew each other." Jun. 6, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "Naming a white girl a black girl name is going to raise heads and make things awkward for her. Also i think we turn out to look as beautiful as our name implies, people named Butch turn out to be ugly, people named john turn out to be manly (i won't explain why, but sometimes this doesn't apply thats why you hear the turn of phrase "you look more like a john or billy than a xxxxx") So yeah people do indeed turn out to look like their name and how they are treated. People named keshia turn out to be fair skinned, long hair, and assertive in personality or strong is emotion but hide it. I would reccomend this name for cultures that represent these traits."

  • "I agree with the comment left on April the 3rd, "My name is Kesha, and I am Indian. I've always gone through issues with my name. Since I was young everyone said it was a African American name and not a suitable name for a Indian girl. In class, when teachers would role call for attendance, whenever they would come to my name they would stare at every other girl in the room but me, even if I would have my hand waving wildly. There were many points in my life when I absolutely hated my name because I didn't think it suited me, I mean I always thought it was a ghetto name, but now, as I am older, and much more mature, I really love it. I thank my mum for naming Kesha, although I am not so sure how she came up with the name since we were not living in the States when I was born. Just remember your name does not define you, you define your name. In Hindi, Kesha is the female name to Krishna, and it does mean long hair. Long hair, to me signifies beauty in a female, and my dads name is Krishna and I am blessed to be named after him (how many girls can say that!). KESHA IS NOT GHETTO. Kesha is a beautiful female, with exotic looks who not only is the essence of beauty but the essence of intelligence. She is unlike anything anyone has ever met."
