I love this name. I hate the spelling Iesha because it looks like it should be pronounced EE-shuh. Aisha (or the original spelling 'Aisha) is great. I pronounce it I-shuh.

I've also seen it spelled A'ishah.

The only person I've met with this name pronounces it like Asia.

A beautiful Arabic name. The only other spelling variant that's nice is 'Ayesha' but the other spellings Iesha, Ieesha, Iyeesha & Iyesha (which are primarily used by African Americans) are horrendous and bastardizes the beauty and elegance of the way "Aisha" looks.

It sure as hell isn't pronounced 'Asia', so that person is saying it completely wrong (which is a pretty odd, dumb thing to do).

That sounded quite uncalled for. There was no need for making such a generalization, nor saying something that comes across as being so rude. :(

Anyways, the name Aisha is a heavenly Arabian classic. I've only heard of it pronounced "eye-EE-sha" and "AY-sha" but I'm unsure of the original, authentic pronunciation.

I wasn't being "rude" and I wasn't "generalizing" as what I said is not made-up rubbish. If you thought I was having a go at the user Ranchie I wasn't. I just didn't want people to read false information about the way the Arabic name Aisha is pronounced. Also, I wasn't saying all black Americans do this (I have to correct myself by adding to my previous statement that also some British black people do this too) nor was I stating as a fact it's done by the majority of the whole black population, but out of whites, Asians (south and east), Arabs etc. This ugly spelling practice of the name Aisha is done mostly by black people. Seems the truth hurts to you. It's just an observation. No need to be upset. People are so easily offended these days. Anyway, what I think of the other spellings of this name is just my opinion which I'm entitled to have.

Disliking some spellings of names is not "racism". Would you call a person racist if they said they don't like the spellings Ullizuhbuth for Elizabeth, Emuleigh for Emily, Cymberleigh for Kimberly, Tiphannie for Tiffany, Mykynzy for Mackenzie, Jakksyn for Jackson, Raiyyon for Ryan, Khristuffurr for Christopher, Leeyum for Liam? I think not, even though it's the same thing. No one ever calls people's negative opinions over horribly spelled western names by that term.

If you single out certain variants as being used almost solely by a particular race, and THEN write that those variants "bastardize the beauty and elegance of the [original transliteration]," then you are explicitly insulting those races'/cultures' particular usage of the name, not the variants themselves.

That is boldfaced racism.

If it hurts you to be called racist, then you need to examine your worldviews.

It can be pronounced as either "Eye-shə" or "i-EE-shə" as both pronunciations are valid/authentic in Arabic.

A variant of this name is Aiysha.

I like the name. I know someone who spell it Ahyshia (Iesha).

I find it a very pretty name, though it's not a favorite. It sounds a bit too youthful for me, a bit too much like a child's name, and less like a grown woman's name. Other than this, I find it lovely.
