"My name is also Jaleesa. Mom name me after the tv show different World. I didnt know any other Jaleesa until Middle school. All three of us graduated together!!! I am surprised it so many of us. People always say my name is beautiful and unique and it is!!! Hello to all my fellow Jaleesa. We Rock" Feb. 29, 2020:
"My names Jaleesa too i was also named after the tv show A different world. Jaleesa means Gods Promise!!!" Jun. 27, 2013:
"I didn't know there were soooo many Jaleesas' in the world. For the majority of us to have gotten our names from the tv show "different World", is a unique thing as well besides the name itself. Yes my name is Jaleesa as well, and I spell it Ja-lee-sa (jah-lee-sah), just as you see it. People say that they don't know why other people spell it with two "e", are you special? It makes the long "e" sound. Otherwise spelled like so; Jalesa, you would pronounce it (Jah-leh-sah)or pronounced like the "e" in the word "less". Anway, I just hate seeing people with my name that are ugly (Lord forgive me!) Other than that I think we have the best name, it's not ghetto, and it is very unique. Till this day, many people say that they haven't heard my name before & that it is beautiful! <3" Jun. 13, 2012:
