Comments for ALISHA:

This is my name! Once I asked my mom what ever possessed her to spell my name Alisha, although it is still pronounced "alicia" (like the southern Alicia or Alicia Keys) and she said the Anasthesia made her woosy. A flimsy excuse I say. I've been called everything from AH-LISH-AH, AH-LISA and it is infurating. If you are naming your child this SPELL IT RIGHT! Or be prepared for them to continually miss rollcall because of mispronunciation!

My best friend's name is Alisha! I have always liked this name. Althought it's spelt Alisha it is pronounced A-lee-sh-A. The spelling isn't wrong it's just different, but if we were all the same the world would suck.

I LOVE this name. My second daughter's first name is this :) No matter what your name is, it is most certainly ALWAYS going to get misspelled or prounounced wrong. I like the unique spelling.

The name ALISHA is also a boy's name, a variant of the Biblical name ELISHA. This variation has the same meaning, and pronounced AL-EYE'-SHUH.

I hate this spelling. It looks very unsophisticated to me.

Actually Elisha was a Biblical character. He was a prophet. However it's a German name which means "Truth" and "Noble". I think it's quite a happening name to bear.

This name is so terrible, trendy and pathetic. The typical name to sound 'cool' or 'fly', as some say. Give your daughter a decent name, and call her Alicia, or even Alice. But Alisha is one of the most horribly vulgar names I've heard.

This spelling gives the name a bit of a ghetto look, although it was used by a British duo Alisha's Attic back in the 90s, as if anyone but me and a handful of people who actually listened to their music could remember that. The name actually sounds ghetto too, even though it's very common and not a ghetto name per se.

I think Alisha shouldn't be spelled Alica. I like how it is ALI-SHA. So cute!

I love this name spelled like this! It's not pathetic or trendy! I don't know anyone but one person that it's spelled like this! Also it sounds like what it is Ali-Sha!

This is my given name and I'm rather fond of it. It serves me well, suits me, and has plenty of nickname options; Alice, Ali, Al, Lee, LeeLee, Sasha *the list goes on*

Alisha is usually pronounced as ə-LEE-shə. My name is Alisha, and I know two others with the same name pronounced the same way. [noted -ed]

I rather like it actually, despite it being a "misspelling." Some people would pronounce it with the short I though, and that gets old.

The Alisha I know pronounces it A-LISH-a which is exactly how it looks to be pronounced. I think it would be much easier to understand if A-LISH-a was always spelled Alisha and a-lee-sha was spelled Alesha and a-lee-see-uh was spelled Alicia.

My name is spelt Alisha (pronounced as ah-lish-ah) and I love it! My nicknames are Lisha, Lishy, Lish, Ishy (EE-she) and children call me Wishy or Wisha because they can't say 'L' properly (so cute). The only problem I get is people misspelling it.

My name is Alisha (Ah-Lee-Sha) and yes, there are mispronunciations and misspellings, but I love having a different spelling. I am unique and my name fits me. My step daughter used to pronounce it Yisa because she couldn't say the L or "SH" right and it was the cutest thing ever. And I have been told it was a black girls name but I have yet to meet a black girl with the name "Alisha" the closest I've seen is Felicia...

I've met SO many Alisha's in my life that I'm really sick of hearing this name now..-. I've never come across an Alisha who uses the "ə-LISH-ə" pronunciation, they all pronounced it as "ə-LEE-shə". I think "ə-LISH-ə" actually sounds quite ugly. "ə-LEE-shə" sounds better. The name Alisha is OK though not spectacular or special in my opinion.
