My name is actually Alisia which wasn't on here and Alicia was the closest. I'm also told they are pretty much the'same name anyway. I pronounce it AH-LISS-E-AH although It's often said Alisha, Alissa or AH-LEE-SEE-AH by many and I tend to get people spelling it Alicia a lot. I personally really like this name'since It's not hugely common where I am and the very few are called Alicia not Alisia making my name that tad more different.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

A lot of people pronounce my name wrong. Its pronounce ah-lee-see-ah but people want to say it with a "sh" sound. And they all think i speak spanish but i dont. Stop with the'sterotypes people!

My name's Alicia, pronounced 'A-lee-sha'. My teache's always call me 'A-leesh-ee-ah' and I HATE it like that. My nicknames include : Ali, Leeshy, Ida, Lisha, Iisha ("I-eesha"), Aliciey and maybe one or two othe's. I love the name, It's so unique. Plus my father wanted me to have a German name and my mother wanted me to be named after her mother (Alice), so Alicia worked perfectly! Currently going by the name Ali =) -Ali x

I'm Alicia, often misspelled, mispronounced, especially in the'south. I grew up with the black pronounced way "Alisha". I started going by Ali in 3rd grade and stayed with it. I think It's a beautiful name if pronounced correctly "Aleesha"

07/17/2023 12:22:46

07/05/2023 20:00:34

My name is Alicia, and i like it. i've seen better names, but i like mine a lot more than the most common names that everyone has. I pronounce my name "A-leesh-a" but occasionally people when i first meet them pronounce it "A-leece-e-a"i used to hate it, but i dont really mind it too much anymore, because i think its pretty pronounced both ways. i get a lot of nick names from it, things like Leeshey(lee-she), Leashe's (lee-she's), and some even call me Ally (pronounced like Ali, i just wanted to be unique in my spelling of my nickname when i first started being called this)

06/25/2023 04:37:12

My name is Alicia, rhymes with Patricia, as my parents thought it would be. If i tell people "Alicia rhymes with Patricia' they understand, but i've come to respond to A-leesh-ah and Ah-lish-ah.

06/08/2023 17:55:38

05/28/2023 23:35:56

I am Alicia. I go by Al and I don't like Aleeshuh, but Alee see uh is cool. My mom calls me the former and I hate it.

05/13/2023 00:57:20

a-lee-see-a is the correct way to pronounce because it is originally spanish

05/03/2023 05:33:02

The correct French pronunciation suggest strongly that this name is male all the way. Parents electing to utilize this name for their daughters are plain ignorant.

05/03/2023 04:22:30

My name is Alicia, pronounced A-leesh-ah. I hate my name! everyone always says it different ways, and no one can spell it. Some of my nicknames are Cici, leesh, leesha, Lili, Alix, and Ali.

04/28/2023 03:17:34

My name is Alicia, born in 1996, pronounced Uh-lee-sha, Nicknamed Lisha or LeeLee, I'd say It's 50/50 when people try to pronounce it. They either get it right or call me uh-lee-see-uh, I think both pronunciations are beautiful. I love my name because I have always been a blunt and honest person my whole life, then I found out my name means TRUTH, paired with my middle name... the meaning is BITTER TRUTH, and my personality matches the meaning perfectly!... Thanks mom!

04/07/2023 11:30:08

HEY yall my name is "Alicia" and i love It'so much since the'spellings unique and sounds hot!

03/31/2023 20:30:30

My name is Alicia, pronounced A-LIS-EE-A as It's a variation of the name Alice. People often mis-pronounce it, I get A-LEE-SHA a lot and even my own boyfriend calls me A-LEES-EEA lol. I don't care now and will answer to any of them :)

03/08/2023 20:35:06

The name always conjures up images of David Cassidy, but I LOVE the nickname of feminine and sweet.

02/28/2023 18:19:28

The correct way to say this non-English name is "Ah-ni-ka" with emphasis on the first syllable. My wife and I thought that the well-known golfer would lend people familiarity with the name in the US, but that has not proven'to be the case and her name is constantly mispronounced as the Americanized "Ann-ika" with a short "a," or "A-nee-ka" (which should obviously be incorrect based on the'spelling). Love the name, but not what people do to it...I am amazed that even in the two Pippi Longstocking movies, one American-dubbed and the other American-made, "Annika" is mispronounced BOTH times.

02/18/2023 02:03:12

My name is ALICIA. PRONOUNCED: ah-lee-see-sear. i love it pronounced like that. I HATE 'allesha', 'ah-lis-ya'. My nickname are 'LICI','ALI', EE-SEAR (SIS WEN SHE WAS WAY TOO YOUNG". lOVE MY NAME.

I named my daughter alicia and I love it obviously. I just wish that it was pronounced right uh lee see uh. I know many are named the'same thibg wanting it to be pronounced uh lee sha. ahhhh it drives me crazy. You spell uh lee sha alesha i thought but who knows I guess that there was another way that I could have spelt it for less confusion alycia. I just think that alicia is a cuter way to spell it . any way I am happy with my decision

01/14/2023 13:17:12

lots of people say my name wrong also i really didn't like my name but now i've started a new school everyone says its beautiful name and they would love to have that name. NOW I'm HAPPY :)

01/13/2023 02:54:06

07/13/2022 05:50:24

I named my baby girl Alicia (pronounced uh-lee-see-uh) Well they often mis-pronounce it but I love it pron this way. I thought of various spellings before she was born Alycia, Alecia..(trying to make it pronounced uh-lee-see-uh) but somehow they all seemed to have something odd and Alicia was the prettiest spelling. Well I admit I get frustrated when othe's read the name as A-lee-sha but I correct them and that's until they get used that'she's an A-lee-see-a ! Hope she'll love it when she grows up :)

05/30/2022 08:40:30

My name is Alicia [Ah-lee-see-ah]. I have a love/hate relationship with my name. I hate that most people think that I can speak Spanish because of my name, and that I am always correcting people. I like the way my name'sounds when It's correct, so I'm thinking of changing the'spelling... Alysia❤️
