Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
Ashanti was indeed the name of a group of Afghan chieftains who created a state (small country) in the 17th Century in the area of Ghana in Africa: known as the Ashanti Empire.

Ashanti is however, from the French word: Enchante which means: Enchanting, Enchanted, Charming, Captivating.

And although Anglicized in its pronunciation now: Ashanti, it can be pronounced Enchantè (with a light sound on "en" at the beginning that makes it almost sound like "an", with the "ch" having a typical "sh" sound, and a long "ee" sound at the end).

My name is Ashanti and I love the name. It is not a common name so for those that think the name Ashanti is stupid, shut up.

I've met only one Ashanti and she was one of my friends in 8th grade. I thought it was an okay name. There was also a girl I knew that was named Ashanta... don't know what her mom was thinking.

I once knew a decent girl named Ashanti. I can picture it on boys or girls, but after meeting her this name seems more feminine to me.

I like the name. It's not a made up name, it actually has a meaning. It is similar to Ashley, but not boring like Ashley. I doubt I would use it for my daughter, it doesn't flow well with my surname.

I have always thought both the singer and her name were very sweet and pretty.

Ashanti is a trashy, celebrity-inspired name that would best suit a porn star or a stripper. It's also the name of an ethnic group. No member of the Ashanti people has this as a name. Choose something else.

Rather trashy on most people.

The r'n'b singer has really ruined the name. I bet all those little girls born in 2002 and named Ashanti are going to wish they had a different name than this foreign-sounding name that can only be asociated with some obscure, and POOR, r'n'b singer that no one will remember by the time the poor girls are in their teens. When they hear her songs (because the parents are guaranteed to have saved at least one), they'll look at their parents angrily and say: "I was named after HER?!" It will be awkward indeed. Come on now, you are just as American as white people. Don't pick this clearly foreign name unless you have actual bonds to the culture it came from.

I think Ashanti is a very pretty name!
