I like this sometimes, and then other times it sounds a bit overused and too much of a chav name. But I think I like it pronounced "ay-sha" rather than "ai-ee-sha" or "ai-sha" or anything like that.

I love this name because it's my middle name! But I really do like this name. It's very pretty and a little sassy.

I've also seen Aisha spelled Iesha. I don't like that though.

A very pretty name. Not sure I would use it for a white girl, though, honestly.

It's fairly popular in Morocco; not as popular as Fatima or Khadija, it seems to me. Typically they'll spell it as Aicha.

I think this is one of a myriad Arabic names that have given rise to so many "invented" Afro-American names that typically end with "aisha", "isha" or "sha". Typically, the givers and bearers of these names attribute them to French roots, when in reality the inspiration is more likely Middle Eastern.

Nice insight by the previous poster who mentioned that the spelling in Algeria tends to be "Aicha" -- Algeria is a former French colony and French is widely spoken there yet the French lexicon does not include "sh" but rather uses "ch" for the sound "sh" makes in English. Therefore, it stands to reason that when words and names are transliterated from Arabic script to French, "ch" would be used to say "sh". It's simple for one to extrapolate that the mis-assignment of some "modern" Afro-American names is that the original names were picked up from places like Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia where French is a second language for nearly everyone.

Pronounced "Eye-sha".

I have never heard this name pronounced 'ai-ee-sha.' In my area, it's always pronounced 'AY-sha.'

I know a girl who's called like this, but spelled Aixa. In fact, in Spain it is more common Aixa than Aisha.

Aishah (RAH) never went to war against one of the Khalifs.

My name is Aesha, and is indeed pronounced "eye-E-sha"; of course, that's not to say that "ay-sha" isn't the way someone else pronounces it. I've actually known of 3 other Aisha/Ieshas, and they pronounced it the same way as me.
-- Aesha  1/19/2009
I know someone who spells it "Ashia" and pronounces it 'eye - ee - sha'.
-- emily  3/10/2009
The punctuation looks as if it was placed there and doesn't seem to fit at the front of the name. I'm not too fond of Aisha. It seems like a trendy, modern invention, but when you take the meaning into account, it's not that bad. I just think it's a bit overused today.

A little nice, but I hate the apostrophe at the beginning.
-- -Julia-  8/31/2009
I pronounce Aisha ah-EE-sha.
-- Ailis  12/16/2009
It's a beautiful name, but I feel so sorry for the namesake. Aisha sounds to me like a beautiful, shy, lonely and vulnerable little girl who needs more quality daddy time to really live up to her name. A girl who needs time to enjoy being her daddy's princess instead of being made a queen at too young an age. A girl made to grow up entirely too quickly.

If I wasn't worried about what Muslims would do to Christians all over the Middle East, I'd write a book based on Aisha's life. I see her as a very tragic figure in history.

My name is Aisha. I was born in 1991, a year after the song Iesha came out. Thankfully my mother decided to spell it the correct way. I like my name, and I think it suits me.
-- Bonquiqui  6/1/2012
I've only ever heard it pronounced Ay-sha and Eye-sha. Personally, I can't chose which way I like it best (but I would spell it Aysha) :)

It is true that lady Aisha was one of the wives of prophet Muhammad peace upon him, all sources agree on that. But what most sources deny is saying that she went to war against Ali the son of Talib God be pleased of him. Please, it would be best to leave mentioning one point of view and shun the other one. Saying that she was the wife of prophet Muhammad is enough. No need for information taken from questioned sources. To put it simple, only mention what all agree on.

Now, as for the individual named Atarah Derek, I believe the site is not to make your personal impressions and try to force your understanding of a story on others. The site isn't a place to corrupt the picture of others and provoke people to form a negative impression about them. So, with due respect, if you want to discuss what you think of lady Aisha's marriage with prophet Muhammad then it would be best to find a forum or a paltalk room. Such things are irrelevant here.
