"As beautiful a name as Lisha is, don't you agree that you can NEVER find anything with our name on it? like a cup, a keychain, a pen or even a stuffed animal??? I've NEVER found anything with the name Lisha on it. You find Alicia, Lee, Lisa but you can never find "Lisha". If you want anything, you have to get it specially made. But that's ok, it's a small price to pay for such a beautiful name." Feb. 10, 2010:

"My Name is Lisha as Well. Mostly, my parents called me Lisa, its the way you pronounce it in chinese. My teachers called me by Lisha instead, since they pronounce it by they way it is written. When I was younger I kept telling people that Lisha for my parents was prnounced Lisa. But they often forgot, and they went with the way its spelt. So for me, its like I have two different names. Lisha and Lisa. I prefer if people called me Lisha instead. Lisha is an unquie name." Sep. 15, 2007:
