  • "I am NaKeisha (Nay-Kee-sha) but everyone calls me Keisha for short. I am 41 years old and have known a lot of Keisha's. I love my name because it is mine and my mother gave it to me, well actually my sister. My mother was going to name me BrookLyn, but sister was being hip and suggested it, and she liked it too. Therefore, Keisha was born! I know muslim Keisha's and NaKeisha's and now starting to meeet more white Keisha's. I love all Keisha's, we are bonded by our beautiful name and I am even tickled when I hear it in a song. I think it is a pretty name and am always told so." Sep. 17, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Kiesha and I freaking love it! It fits my personality perfectly. I am a 33 year old black female from NC. My mother, (RIP), used to tell me "Baby I wanted your name to be spelled grammatically correct. "I" before "E" except after "C".. " LOL..." Aug. 13, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Kesha and I LOVE it!!! People do sometimes misspell or mispronounce my name but I don't mind! I was born in 1971." Jan. 17, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm white and my name is Kisha. I like my name, people always assume I am a black girl based off of my name but I don't care. I have had people tell me I should change my name because it sounds ghetto, but I love my name." Aug. 8, 2013: Report as inappropriate

I love my name, and I actually know one Kecia- and she is white too LOL.I live in southern US and wouldnt change my name. I always hear how people think its so pretty. Anyways I always used to want to spell it different but now I dont think i want to change it :)" Nov. 18, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am West Indian and black. I didn't know many Keisha (s) when I was growing up. Actually, I knew only ONE. It turns out that my mother knew only ONE too, because she named me after THAT Keisha! Anyway, I love my name and I wouldn't change it for anything. It is not "ghetto" by any means. Regardless of what people perceive it to be, I DEFINE my name (not the other way around) and my LIFE determines its meaning. Besides, I've met more Keisha (s) since I've been living in the U.S and they're no less than from the Sarah(s), Elizabeth(s), Bethany(s) or Kathryn (s) I've met either. They were in many cases more educated and productive than the other "preferred" names. A professor in college told us that if your name ends in "sha" you should consider changing it for employment purposes. Well, my response to that is, " I hope she goes to hell!" (just kidding). But seriously, HE who has called me in my mother's womb, knew me before my time and has started the work in me, IS WELL ABLE TO COMPLETE IT! Be Still Professor (Zero)!"
