  • "My name is Tameaka, I've only met 1 person with my first and last name spelt the exact way. It is a very common name in Jamaica and you soon find out you're not the only one with that name when you reach high school. Though various spellings exist, we all share the short version of meka, tammi, tee, meeks and of course the dreaded mispronunciation of our name. I have been called (tami aw ka) a few times..lol. when in high school I was told it was the name of an African princess. Though common, I loved it the more. I am an African princess and my name is Tameaka" Sep. 5, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Tameka. The name means twin, and I'm also a Gemini. Knowing that helped me develop acceptance and appreciation for my name. It's an uncommon name today, considering that most people have associated it with race and class; sadly, it's been deemed urban and ghetto. I think my name was definitely a fad or trend of the 80s. I'm 29 (born in 1983), and happy that my parents chose a name that truly reflects the beginning of my life." Apr. 14, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "Honeslty I hate my name. I've never been fond of the name and have grown a personal dislike towards the name in general. I know when I walk through the door for an interview the person on the other side knows who is coming. My clients know when they call or come to my office they know its a "black chick" coming through the door." Jan. 27, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is of course also Tameka and I don't like it because I figured out at one point that it also meant beautiful and myself I don't believe I am beautiful .And i do know like one other person with the same name and the funny part is that we were both born the exact same day and year the only difference between us is like one hour and our mothers are friends. I also do not like my name because people are always spelling it wrong and some people I know pronounce it (Tam eh ka) so it can get quite anoying at times.People make fun of my name saying "Why did your mom give you an African-American name does she hate you that much?" but I don't listen to them anymore and plus they are stupid children whom have no idea what they are saying. ( My apologies to those who are African-American I believe you are all beautiful and kind at heart and that your families love you very much. And to those who are young and are picked at for their name being Tameka spelled anyway at all please don't listen to them because if you do you may stoop down to their levels.)"

  • "Almost a year later my comment is to Aneia. There is no such thing as a real or unreal name. Just as there is no correct spelling or incorrect spelling. If you are real your name is real. How ever you spell it pronounce it it is real. People have always created names and I suspect they always will. What is a "Ghetto Name"? If a Mary lives in the ghetto is Mary a ghetto name? I know hat people mean by that but come on lets not get into that celebrate who you are and embrace it." Oct. 2, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Tameka and I'm so glad to see that so many others spell it with an "e" and not an "i". I think its a beautiful; however, I still feel that people seem to pre-judge me based on the name.

  • "So,my name is TAIMEKA, spelled very differently and always mispronounced and mispelled. The truth behind it is that my mother added the "i" by mistake :). My aunt gave me the name and she spelled it Tameka and when my mother registered me it was written Taimeka. I love it, its so different. Growing up there were so many people who had my name and as I got older and entered the business world, the numbers declined; and my name became exotic and fascinating. I love my name and can't ask for anything better." Oct. 17, 2008: Report as inappropriate

I have had my name mispronounced several times(Time-ka,Tim,ka) and to this day it is still mispronounced as Ty-meka. Just because it is spelled with an I.
