Comments for KEISHA:

I just love the name. My daughter's name is Keisha but I spelt it KEESHA.

In the Swahili dictionary put up by Yale University on the Internet, none of the five words for "favorite" looks anything like "Keisha" to me. Of course, maybe a completely unabridged Swahili dictionary would have this, but I personally doubt it. [noted -ed]

This name only looks right on girls with darker-colored skin.

That makes absolutely no sense and it's not true either. What a dumb response.

Just because mostly black people use this name doesn't mean that other races can't use it.

I just recently remembered that Rose Tyler (off Doctor Who) had a mate called Keisha.

My name is Keisha, I personally don't like it, it's too common and mostly ghetto people have this name which I'm not.

This one sounds quite trashy to me, and no, I don't think it sounds natural on white women, as it has that typical ghetto name sound to it.

There is a beautiful r&b singer named Keyshia Cole. She's definitely one of my favorites and she makes this name seem so much sweeter then what people make it out to be.

I think Keisha is an okay name, but perhaps spelled differently, like Keysha.
Also, slight_night_shiver, what is this 'typical ghetto sound' you are talking about? I am black and I hate people telling other black people 'your name doesn't sound black' just because her/his name isn't Keisha, Shenika, Daquarius, or Quantavius.

I knew a (white) girl with this name and she pronounced it Kay-sha.

I admit it sounds as tolerable as ghetto names go, and it actually sounds professional compared to names like Shaniqua, LaKeshia, and LaWanda. Even so, it's still ghetto and a little trashy.

The name is actually scottish and is a variation of Keita or Keitha which means woods; enclosed place. It is the modern feminine version of Keith.

There's a pop singer with this name, only her stage name is literally Ke$ha. She pronounces it KESH-a.

You people say it's 'ghetto' are so shallow. I'm half black, half Mexican and my name's Hailie. My black family have very formal names like Liana, Jocelyn, Patricia. And a girl on my volleyball team (who is white) has this name and I think it suits her very well. Stop being shallow and get over the fact that name's are no longer determined by race.

My name is Lakeisha everyone calls me "Keisha" for short. I really like my name and I'm white! I was reading some of the comments on here most of them are about the color of our skin! I'm not even black and I felt offended by the racial slurs! You DON'T HAVE TO HAVE dark SKIN just to have the name "Lakeisha" or "Keisha", anyone can have this name, you don't have to be black just to have this name... I'm just saying!

What's wrong with Keziah? I think Keziah is a much better and actually legit name compared to Keisha.

Keshia, that's how actress Keshia Knight Pulliam's name is really spelled.

Every time I hear this name, it makes me think of one of my old classmates, named Keisha, who was on the extremely chubby side, loud, rude... This is why (and also because I'm white and my future daughter would most likely get racial slurs for having this name) I would never name a kid Keisha.
-- Ryry1996  5/7/2011
I think this name is cheap and ghetto. People who had this name just ruin it for other people because it gives off a bad impression and using this name classifies you as ghetto.

My name is Keisha and personally, I don't think it suits me at all. I'm small with a very pale Irish complexion. I don't think this name suits my personality, nor do I think it will be beneficial in my adult life. I can't even begin to explain how many times I've had to correct pronunciation and spelling of my name. I would prefer to go by Eva, a shortened version of my middle name.

I love my name. Some of these comments are outrageous. I didn't make my parents give me this name. To say it is trashy and ghetto is very disrespectful to our parents and those who carry this name. You should not judge anyone by their name, gender, etc. Truth be told a Keisha may be the one who is operating on you, or may have to work for a Keisha... Blessings to all...

My name is Keisha, I am not African American, I am not Ghetto, I am white. I love my name because my mom gave it to me! My grandmother wanted me to be Pamela Paige... Yuck... I have gotten comments from people asking if I'm black because they hear my name without seeing my face. It's a good name and I wouldn't change it for the world... Except when they call me Keish.
