I used to prefer this pronounced a-KAY-see-a. Now I say a-KAY-sha. I really like this name!

I think it would be cute if there was a nickname for it like "Cacy" (kay-SHEE) or "Cacy" (kay-SEE). Lovely name.

Ugh. Ridiculous name.

I like this name but only a certain person could "pull it off" me thinks. It would be great on an exotic beauty but not a plain Jane.

This name is so gorgeous. :]

Acacia is a genus of shrubs and trees belonging to the subfamily Mimosoideae of the family Fabaceae, first described in Africa by the Swedish botanist Linnaeus in 1773.

Acacias are also known as thorntrees or wattles, including the yellow-fever Acacia and umbrella acacias.

I argee with Kitten, only a certain person could pull off this name. Like some exotic beauty. It's great for a character, but I don't like it for a person.

I like the pronunciation 'Ah-cay-see-ah' that I thought it was before finding out the actual pronunciation better, but it's a pretty name either way. I used it as the middle name of one of characters, and she was indeed very exotic; I agree that this name only fits some people, and characters better than actual people.

The bullhorn acacia is a common tree in the Yucatan, best known for its symbiotic relationship with ants. The ants live in the hollowed out thorns of the tree and fiercly protect it from any intruder in return for their comfortable home.

Note that this name has a rather typical ghetto name ending.

I know an Acacia. She's very nice, and sweet, but no 'exotic beauty.' However, I have always thought this name was a bit weird.

I love this name because it's my name. When I was younger I didn't like it so much because people would always pronounce it wrong but now I like it. I realize it's a rare, but beautiful name (and now more people pronounce it correctly and they ask which way because in Spanish it's pronounced slightly different). Like the other people said, i think only certain people can pull off this name and I think I do it well.

I don't like the pronunciation, but the way it's spelled is very pretty, and so are the trees. It sounds tropical to me.
-- _0TophasNails_1  12/15/2008
Pronounced "ah-kah-see-yah".
-- MaggieSimpson  7/13/2009
It's pretty, but I think it's better as a middle name.
-- -Julia-  8/23/2009
Sounds a bit ghetto, and reminds me of a crappy deathcore band called The Acacia Strain.

This name is getting quite common in Australia, where it is used due to the association of our national tree, the Golden Wattle, which is a member of the Acacia family. It is therefore considered a very patriotic name.

It's become common enough that parents are now tacking another name on the end, like Acacia-Lily or Acacia-Rose, so their daughter doesn't get mixed up with other little Acacias in their class.

Good choice for someone born on Wattle Day (September 1st).

Acacia Ridge is a 'bad' suburb with low socio-economic status in Brisbane, Australia.

It's rather pretty, when not pronounced with the "-sha" ending. The Acacia is a beautiful tree, and I suppose it'd be an okay choice for a daughter if the tree in particular means something special to you.

I had a classmate with this name but it was spelled Akaysha which I liked because [the name] it was unique but I hate names that basically spell out every sound so Acacia is definitely a much better spelling. Beautiful name.
-- Poco  9/11/2012
Acacia is also the feminine form of Acacius. There should probably be a separate entry created for that one.
-- Lucille  2/19/2013
Acacia is a pretty name, whether it's a first name or a middle name.
