At one time I did not like my name (La Keesha). I asked my mom why she named me that. I think I hurt her a little because she really liked the name. I eventually started to embrace it. Life is what you make it. No one can make you feel inferior unless you allow them to. I can't allow others with or without my name to dictate who I am going to be. Classy or trashy or ghetto, we should stop judging books by their covers and learn to love one another.

I know it sounds ghetto, but I like my name. Why does everyone think it's trashy? It is just a name. My name is Lakeisha and I'm pretty successful now.

It's just pretentious phony Afro-Babble.
No such word in Hebrew or any other language with a written alphabet.

Despite the media’s negative connotations, the name LaKeisha has only positive denotations (e.g., happy, joyous, she who lives, she who is alive). For the record, my name is LaKeisha. However, many, including male WASPs, salute me as Dr. Jones. Thus, I am the epitome of my name AND my title.

Actually Lakeisha is a Swahili name meaning "the favorite one".

I don't think this name is trashy at all. When I hear it all I see is Lake and it makes me think of beautiful waterfalls.

Ghetto, stereotypical, uneducated. Someone with a name like this will face discrimination and will have a harder time finding employment.

Am I practically the only person on this site that doesn't think names like Lakeisha are trashy? This name sounds lovely to me, but maybe it's because I know someone named Lakeisha who is a nice girl.

Names with prefixes like La and Le are so weird. They sound tacky, and like trashy ghetto names, of course, but it always gives the impression that the parents have rather pompous and megalomaniacal expectations or ideas about their kids, esecially considering that they, well, are going to have a name that leads to low expectations. It's like saying, ''she's not merely Keisha, she is LA Keisha''.

This makes me think of the Maury show episodes with the paternity test.
