Comments for KALISHA:

What a tacky and ghetto name. I bet it has no African meaning or background. It is a made up and ghetto name.

Meaning "Purity," an ancient Arabian goddess worshiped, as most other female deities of that culture, in the shape of a stone.

I knew a girl with this name but it was spelled Kalecia.

I tend to not like these style of names because they have no meaning or history. There's also other reasons, but are more complicated than I can explain in one a comment.

However, the other comments on here reek of racism.

I am not usually fond of made up names, but I think Kalisha has a neat sound to it (pronounced KAL-ishah).

EkiAku, I don't think that the other comments necessarily "reek of racism"... I just think that the posters chose to call it "ghetto" rather than better explaining why they dislike it, or simply saying that they find made up names to be unappealing. In the grand scheme of things, I don't think Kalisha is looks boldly made up... it could be passable as a "genuine" name, in my opinion. I tend to not like kre8tiv names for their lack of professional appearance, though.

To be honest, I really like this name and others like it because they are creative and unique. You see a million people named John, Anna, Maggie or David, but how many people do you meet every day named something like Kalisha, Lashonda, Nikeisha or Latonya?

I think these names are beautiful and individual, people who are deeming them "ignorant", "silly" or "unprofessional" and putting out all of the primarily negative thoughts they would have about people with these names are quite frankly coming off as very racist, seeing how these kinds of names are typically used by black Americans and are listed under the African American category.

To those people, why do you hold such hatred towards names you directly associate with black people? Is it outright racism, or are you just jealous because your name is something bland and unoriginal like Maggie or David?

Oh well, at least yours are "professional" enough for racist standards.
