Personal Impression
Acacia is a such a rare gem! If it's too much for a tomboy, she can always shorten it to Casey.

I think Acacia is a beautiful name. It is so unique and wonderful.

My daughter's name is Acacia Zoey, it's a lovely name just like my doll.

I used this name for a character's middle name in a story I once wrote. At first, I didn't like it a ton and just picked it randomly but this name has grown on me. I think it is a beautiful name and I love its spelling and pronunciation.

I hate both pronunciations of this name.

The ark of the covenant was made from Acacia wood. Very important wood to Jews & Christians in the Bible. It is a lovely sounding name and cool meaning in my opinion. Casey could be a nice nickname, especially if it sounds too odd or exotic to you.

The name Acacia was given to 102 girls born in the US in 2015.

This is such a gorgeous, underused nature name. The Acacia tree itself has such a striking silhouette.

This name is so cool and ethereal.

I like it because it's my name. When I was younger I used to not like it because people would mispronounce it. I now realize it is rare and very beautiful.

The ending isn't that great because that's the ending that makes us think of Ghettos and I don't like this thought. Still, it's a 6/10 name!
cutenose  1/4/2016
I'm inclined to pronounce this Ah-kay-shya, but I really enjoy the pronunciation any which way it goes. It sounds fluffy and pretty and overtly feminine.
I think any girl or lady, as long as they're sweet, could easily bear this name, it's so warm sounding!

The Turkish form of this name is Akasya.

Acacia Gardens is a pleasant suburb in the Hills region of Sydney. Many of its streets are named after flowers.
AustraLiana  8/31/2014
Acacia is a pretty name, whether it's a first name or a middle name.
xgirl  5/26/2014
Acacia is also the feminine form of Acacius. There should probably be a separate entry created for that one.
Lucille  2/19/2013
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
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.

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

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).

Sounds a bit ghetto, and reminds me of a crappy deathcore band called The Acacia Strain.
Aureliano  2/26/2010
It's pretty, but I think it's better as a middle name.
-Julia-  8/23/2009
Pronounced "ah-kah-see-yah".
MaggieSimpson  7/13/2009
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
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.
bmarie  9/4/2008
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.

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

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.
trace_lc  4/12/2008
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.
Iridosmine  9/22/2007
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.

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.

This name is so gorgeous. :]
dreadfulxsorry  6/29/2007
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.
Kitten  4/6/2007
Ugh. Ridiculous name.
― Anonymous User  11/15/2006
I think it would be cute if there was a nickname for it like "Cacy" (kay-SHEE) or "Cacy" (kay-SEE). Lovely name.
katykat  10/16/2006
I used to prefer this pronounced a-KAY-see-a. Now I say a-KAY-sha. I really like this name!
claraelizabethann  8/27/2006
What a wonderful, natural name. Love it!
