  • "I am 25 years old and my name is Alisha. When I was a child, I didn't know anyone with my name, other than one older girl who spelled hers as Alicia. I was always told it was a pretty name during introductions. Nowadays I've noticed more people with my spelling and pronunciation, so it doesn't seem as unique as it was back then, but it is still unique enough that it isn't too common of a name. I am happy with my name overall, however I wish there were more nicknames to go along with it. The only problem I have with my name is that people often misspell it as Alicia or pronounce it as A-lish-a, rather than A-leesh-a." Jan. 16, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Alisha Alisha. I Totally feel everyone on the spelling of Alicia. I'm not quite sure who got that rolling as the way to spelling our name but, I would like to have a few words with them. It's comforting to know others with the name Alisha feel the same way I do. Upon reading the comments on this page I came across an Alisha who says she looks like a cat. That's funny because I've heard I look like a cat. I like it. Have any other Alisha's recieved that same comment? On another note I love the meaning of my name most of all. I love it in every language. No one really knows exactly where the origin stemmed from, so I like to think our name can mean all these things at once. Alisha German: (Teutonic) meaning of the girlęs name Alisha: the wise counselor, the truthful one, noble Greek: meaning of the girlęs name Alisha: truth, noble Biblical: Oath of God Indian: He who is protected by God Muslim, Hindu: Protected by God Muslim, Arabic: Honest, truthful, Protected by Allah Hebrew Meaning great happiness Enjoy!!

  • "My name is Alisha Sue. When I was younger in school I kinda wished I had a original name, but that was because I wanted to be like the other children that I went to school with. Now I thank my mother and father that I have a different name than all the other people out there. When I have kids of my own I am going to choose an unique name for them not an original. Some people pronounce it differently. Sometimes it gets on your nerves and sometimes it gets on your friends nerves worse, example in my senior math class in high school my friends would always correct the teacher before I could. After a few times he finally got it right. Honestly it really doesn't bother me when people miss pronounce my name, unless I am in a bad mood I guess. My mom chose this name in 87' because she had never heard it that much. Now you hear it more and more these days it seems like, but I have only went to school with I think like 2 other Alisha's. So if you are thinking about nameing your child/ren this I would tell you to go ahead and do it." Jan. 11, 2006: Report as inappropriate

People almost always pronounce my name "A-lish-a" rather than "A-leesh-a", because that's what it looks like. But it's not right. I'm used to it though. I've actually had tons of people just look at the sh and call me Ashley. I've actually had a teacher call me Ashton. And when people first try to spell my name, they always think it's "Alicia".
