I happen to love the name Erica. I spell my name Arica but it is pronounced the same (Air-ik-uh).
noodlelooz  2/21/2005
From personal experience, I have found that young girls under 10 with the name ERICA are spoiled brats, but, as they mature, they become very nice girls. If a girls name is ERIKA, though, they will be kind their whole life.

Erica is a pretty name. And I do like to spell it differently like 'Arica,' or with a K: 'Arika', or if you want to be unique: Eirikah.

I've always been happy with my name. These days I'll hear someone call out "Erica!" but it often turns out to be a Mom calling her daughter (usually 5 or younger)!

When I was little I hated my name, now that I'm 11 and more mature I appreciate my name because it is more sophisticated than a lot of names. But people also call me Eri (air-e).
ericalynnluvsryan  11/24/2005
My name is Erika with a "k". I used to hate it but now I think it's beautiful, a very sophisticated, high-class sounding name, but I don't like the common spelling "Erica". It makes me think of a really mean girl I used to know.
Arowen Half-Elven  12/19/2005
This name means "ruler for all time" or "ruler forever".
Arowen Half-Elven  12/19/2005
My name is Erica but it is spelled Ericka. I love the way my name is spelled. I have looked it up many times and found that some people say it means ever powerful. My initials spell ELK so my family and friends call me LIL ELK. To all you Erickas out there we have a beautiful name.
LIL ELK  2/13/2006
I think the name Erica is a lovely, short name. My name is Erica and I'm called Eir by most of my friends, but still, Erica is a great name to have.
― Anonymous User  2/21/2006
I think Erica is a nice name. All my friends call me Eir. I used to always want my name to be Stacey, but now that I'm 11 I respect my name more.

Erica is actualy a Russian name.
WWE Champion  4/16/2006
Erica is a nice name, strong but still feminine. I do prefer it with the "c" rather than a "k". I find the "k" spelling a bit harsh.
― Anonymous User  4/25/2006
I think the name Erica is a beautiful name that is elegant, classic and cool.

Erica is the name of Chandler and Monica's adopted daughter in the tv series Friends. Erica's mother was also called Erica.

I rather like my name. Only instead I spell it like, A R Y K A. It is still pronounced the same, but the spelling is different. It doesn't matter which way you spell it, it doesn't change the person's life or anything. But I guess that by spelling it my way, I have become more confident in being who I am. But it still doesn't matter how you spell it. It won't effect their personality or anything. It's just the spelling.
sepharicaura  6/6/2006
My name is Erica and I love it. Although everyone else spells it Ericka, that's alright. I think it's pretty and my other good friend's name is Erica and she's an awesome person! Thumbs up for all Ericas. :D

Erica or Erika is a beautiful name. I love most E names, like Elizabeth, Emma, Emily, and finally Erika.
Emma McHnery  11/11/2006
I've always loved the name Erica, despite the fact my mum hates it. While she liked Edwina, I liked Erica (who do you think is the sane one?) I also had a friend when I was growing up called Heather, and since that name is becoming more popular on girls these days, I think I'd call my daughter Erica so I could remember my friend without adding yet another Heather to the world.
Sophie-Lou  12/17/2006
I like Erika better, but the name Erica still rocks!
7up  2/5/2007
I prefer this name spelt with a c. I know a lot of people who spell it with a k. Either way, I like this name. It's a bit plain, but nice in its simplicity.

Novelist Erica Jong, best known for her 70s best seller FEAR OF FLYING.
ewhitley  2/15/2007
My name is Erica, but I find it annoying when people misspell it. I've had people write down my name as Ericka, Erika, and even Arykah. I don't understand why, since I go by the most common spelling of the name.
Heironymus  3/8/2007
One of my best friend's name is Erica. She was, in fact, named after her father, Eric. Her mother added the "a" at the end to make it more feminine.
Writer_13  3/17/2007
The name Erica rocks, though most people spell it E-R-I-K-A, (that name is cool too) but my name has always been E-R-I-C-A and I like it a lot. I've found it means ruler of all, or ever powerful. Most Ericas I've found also are very strong too. Ericas are the best!
eirlstarr05  5/7/2007
I also did not like my name at first. Sounds a little too rough for me. But I'm going by Eri now since most of my family calls me that anyway.

emc  7/9/2007
My best friend's name is Erica and my name is Heather. Which I think is interesting considering Erica means "heather" in Latin.
MidnightInLondon  7/14/2007
This is my name and I think it's beautiful - I love how it's known in many cultures: Scavinavian, Latin, Japan, etc. Erica spelled this way is also a flower in Italy - which is also a part of my heritage.
puppylove226959  8/11/2007
This verison always came across as softer to me, much better than Erika.
spaz123  8/29/2007
My name is Erica, and I haven't always liked it, though now I do. It isn't as popular anymore either, but it's still really nice. It means 'ruler of all' or 'ever powerful' and Heather in Latin.

Erica is the name of an evergreen shrub or small tree of the heath with family. The plants have small leathery leaves and bell-shaped flowers.
AndrewJKD  4/13/2008
My name is Erica, spelled this way. My mom gave me this spelling because she already liked the sound, but thought the way Erica Kane on "All My Children" spelled it looked pretty!
erb816  4/27/2008
I love the name, and I plan on naming my future daughter Erika, should I have one. Our family is Norwegian, so that particular spelling goes with our roots.
MelvinSpelvin  6/12/2008
I'm named after Erica Kane from All My Children. I know weird right? But, my mom is a HUGE Soap Network fan.
ERICA_BABY  8/14/2008

I prefer Erika.

Erica Dunham, of the band Unter Null.
Kerules  7/5/2009
I liked this name when I was about 12. I thought it was rarer back then, and despite its popularity for my birth year (92) I have not met many Ericas. It sounds like the name of an intelligent and talented woman to me. I still might use it, as its popularity is declining.
Aureliano  3/2/2010
In "Underworld" Sophia Myles plays a vampire named Erica.
Antique_Cherub  9/11/2010
This name sounds really manly and ugly if you ask me!
lilbabyblueblonde  10/31/2010
I think it's pretty!
Chrila96  11/5/2010
This is my name. I was born in 1993, when it was quite popular. I do find it a bit dated, but I much prefer it spelled this way over any other combination of letters.
EricaM  1/31/2012
Erica (best spelling) is my name and it is a beautiful name. Most people call me Eri. But my dad wanted a name similar to his name Derek. When I was born Erica Kane was so popular from All My Children and he thought it was perfect; hence my name. I am happy my name is not as popular as some other beautiful names like Nicole, Heather, or Elizabeth.
― Anonymous User  3/15/2012
I knew someone who spelled it Aeryka, which I like.
SEC908  1/1/2013
My parents were thinking about naming me this and I wish they did. Erica is pretty and classy.
Melys11  1/2/2013
Erica sounds a bit too much like Eric.
Melys11  1/2/2013
This name makes me think of a blonde 1980s valley girl shouting, "ERR-UKA!"

I think I'll pass.
Meadow  11/21/2013
Erica is the dutch word for "heather".
keepskuh  2/11/2014
This is my name and I like it. I like it much better than the similar and more popular Erin. I think it is much more feminine since it ends in an a sound. However I am disappointed how its popularity is rapidly decreasing. I don't understand why some names like Fatima, Nevaeh and Yaretzi are being used more than Erica now. I know my name is starting to become outdated but in the future I don't want to be one of those people with an "old lady name". So hopefully it will start becoming more popular.
erilynn25  6/5/2014
I think Erica is a great name. It's beautiful, smart and classy sounding. :D

@erilynn25 Um, you're actually comparing the name Fatima that is full of history and has an actual meaning to the made up name Nevaeh? Erica, just because a name is a different language to your name doesn't make it equal to meaningless names like Nevaeh. ^^;

The reason the name Fatima ranks higher than Erica in the popularity chart in many countries is because Islam is one of the major religions of the world and there are Muslims who live all around the world. Fatima has always been a popular Islamic name for Muslims. Lots of Muslims are very traditional with their name choices. Fatima will always continue to be used by Muslims just like Michael and John will always continue to be used by Christians.

The reason Erica is not as popular is simply because trends have changed. At one point your name was very popular. Some names go down in popularity, some names rank up, some stay the same. I'm guessing your name is out of style because it doesn't fit in with the cute, trendy, girly style names used at the moment like Emily, Ava, Grace etc.

Don't worry about people thinking your name is old. Your name is very beautiful just like all the less used names out there too. Don't let names that are more popular than others make you feel the less popular names (e.g. yours) are less beautiful. :)

No offence, but I think this is an ugly name.
― Anonymous User  6/29/2016
My name is Erica. I read on another post that girls named Erica were bratty as children but became nicer with age. I completely agree. As a child, I was known to be rude and selfish by my friends who just recently told me their old impressions of me! Now they say that I am friendly and legitimately nice.
Other than that, the name Erica is classy and won't go out of style. It may come and go from the popularity charts but will always be respected. Personally, I like the spelling "Erica" more than other variants with a "k" or "ck" because it is natural.

As Erica is most of the letters of America, it could be a nice but not too obvious ode to patriotism. Amy Erica, maybe cute for a July 4th baby?
