"I am a male. I have had to live with this horrible name my entire life. All throughout my school years whether elementary or college..every year I have been called Alisha.. Every time. If you are thinking about nameing your son this DO NOT.. I assure you he will grow up hating you for it. If anything name him Elijah." Oct. 4, 2008:
