ka-sha. Not really sure how to describe the first a-sound. Anyway, I pronounce it the Polish way: https://forvo.com/word/kasia/.

I know many Polish girls name Kasia but it is always a nickname for Katarzyna. Sounds like KAH-sha.Kaisa - KY-sa

KA-shya (much like KA-sha but slightly different; It's more 'KA-sha' than 'KA-shia') and KIE-sa.

[kaɕa] using BtN's key I'd say KA-sh^(y)a - I get that English SH is neither Polish SZ nor Ś but I don't like that it's used to represent both, hence the palatalisation mark (sorry for the weird notation I couldn't get supertext to work XD), otherwise KA-sha works ok
[kajsa] or KIE-sa - I think, I've never seen this name before so I'm just treating it like Raisa with a kThe IPA may be a bit off as I'm not that good at it but I tried my best.
