My name's Tamika and i love it, especially the meaning - child of the people or enlightened people. i get called all sorts of things too. I'm 18 and still have never met anyone with my name. the closest i've come is someone I'met said their sister had the'same name. It's more common than i thought. i've actually never had anyone comment that It's ghetto, though that's sorta where my parents heard the name.
My name is Tameka, but I hate when people spell it Tamika, sorry It's just not how I spell my name! I have friend who has the'same name but spells it Tameika, that's original! I love my name, but didn't when I was younger. I especially like the way It'sounds with my last name!

My name is Timeka my best friend's name is Tomiko and I have a cousin named Rameka. I love and appreciate my name. I have had my name mispronounced several times(Time-ka,Tim,ka) and to this day it is still mispronounced as Ty-meka. Just because it is spelled with an I. I was told that it was spelled wrong or that is not the right way to spell it. Growing up I was told that my name was ghetto and for awhile I beli'ved it but its not the name its the person behind the name.
My name is Tameka and I'm so glad to see that'so many othe's spell it with an "e" and not an "i". I think its a beautiful; however, I still feel that people seem to pre-judge me based on the name. However, I beli've that these barriers are slowly being broken down in the corporate workplace as well as school as the "Tameka's" of the world continue to show the world how wonderful, beautiful and talented we are!
MY NAME IS TAMEKA AND IM THE BEST TAMEKA IN THE WORLD AND THE NICEST PERSON YOU WILL EVER KNOW I LIVE IN FLORDIA SO ALL YALL OTHER TAMEKA'S NEED TO CHANGE YALL NAME LOVE TAMEKA ELLIS (MS. MEKA)
my name is Tameka i live in Jamaica what a gwan!!!when i was in high school five of us had the'same name tameka and we were all in the'same class now I'm in college there are many other'student with this name. This name is really popular in Jamaica and the wider caribbean. Sometimes when I'm walking i'll hear my name been called, sometimes i answer only to find out that it is not me. I love my name very much but sometimes i wish my mother had given me my middle name K-A-RE-MA as my first name
hey everybody ma names tameka its da best name && yea tha right spellin is TAMEKA not tamika && dem otha stoopid ways lol
My Name is Tamika...mine is not with the E..honestly my friends n family love my name...and like everyone says i love the nicknames you get out of it..Tami, tamtam, mika, the best one i enjoyed was when my bestfriend turned my name around n started callin me akimat..was a good laugh while it lasted...now that ive grown up none of my people call me that because they tend to pronounce it wrong and it just hurts my ears hearin them say it the way that doesn't sooth me...I love my name because it origins from The Japanese meaning "people" and i tend to have a lot of positive people around me everywhere i go so it FITS.
My Name Is a bit differnt spelling its Tamika i like my name because you get good nick names and people can not make fun of it because there is no name to make out of it. I like the nick name my family and friends call me like mika or mika moo. People do most of the time pronounce it rite but sometimes they can spell it wrong but that is hardly ever. The correct way to say my name is Ta-mi-ka.
So,my name is TAIMEKA, spelled very differently and always mispronounced and mispelled. The truth behind it is that my mother added the "i" by mistake :). My aunt gave me the name and she'spelled it Tameka and when my mother registered me it was written'taimeka. I love it, its so different. Growing up there were so many people who had my name and as I got older and entered the business world, the numbers declined; and my name became exotic and fascinating. I love my name and can't ask for anything better.
HI'my name is Tameka. I know about a handful other Tamekas some are spelt differently but I love my name. I am 23 and none of the persons I know with this name is over 25 :)

Takema Jacobs on Deal or No Deal is a total babe. The name Tameka always reminds me of her.
Tameka is a made up black name because blacks think It'sounds African. It doesn't mean anything. If they really wanted African'they'd be names Kizzy or Kunte.

My name is Timeka, my dads name is Tim and he wanted a boy... too bad for him! haha But I like my name. For short I get called, timeeks, meeker, meka, TT, tiki torch, teet, and my favorite: time-ka... that is how teache's would pronounce it when I was a child.

i am 30 years old and my name is spelt tameca. for years i thought i was the only one with that name. i thought the name was african origin only to find out it is of japanese origin and means child of the peope. i am from the country of trinidad and tobago.
I use to hate it when I was young because there were no adult named Tameka. I'm extremely Afro centric and now I embraced my name it I am truly happy my mother gave me such a beautiful name
My name is actually spelt Tamikah. I really don't like when people spell it with an e and, personally, beli've the i is a much better vowel used in this name.
Sheit my name is spelled Tomica I see mad white qirl's with their Tomica name's spelled like that not so qhettoo after all It'sounds qhetto but it doesnt look qhetto
My names Tameka, its awsome though most people cannot spell or pronounce it. I hate it when people call me Tam though its too plain, my nickname's Meeka and i love it. so far i have met about ten'tameka's and all the'same age weird - i think we attract to each other.
most people pronounce my name correctly, yet nearly always spell it wrong (tamika, instead of tameka). i love my name, as it is beautiful and unusual!
I love my name "Tameka", but I don't like when people try to call me "Tammy" for short. My nicknames include: Meka, Mek, Mek-Mek, and Meka-Mek. I love my name because everyone who I'meet and aren't of my ethnicity think its a beautiful name. Yes! It is a beautiful and SEXY name. Its gonna fell weird when I'm 60 with a name like that. Oh well..guess I'll have to continue to live up to the name! Peace and blessings to all the other Tamekas, regardless of the'spelling.
I spell my name with two e's as well "Tameeka". It is never misprononced

My name is Tameka and I think that it is a sexy name because It's mine. If I was not a Tameka it would be an ugly name and I would give my sexy to another name.

I just luv hearing my name on TV.
Tameka is my name and I really like it but people oftenly spell the meka part with an "i" before they'll spell it with an "e". Most people make fun of the name and call me Tam-ma-ca but I don't really meet people with the'same name as me
she is my sister and i am aneia they are saying that my name is not real but it is i can proove it come to my house
My name is Tameka. The name means twin, and I'm also a Gemini. Knowing that helped me develop acceptance and appreciation for my name. It's an uncommon name today, considering that most people have associated it with race and class; sadly, It's been deemed urban and ghetto. I think my name was definitely a fad or trend of the 80s. I'm 29 (born in 1995), and happy that my parents chose a name that truly reflects the beginning of my life.
I AM A TAMEKA....I KNOW ALOT OF OTHER TAMEKA'S ALSO, I WORK WITH 3 OThe's. ALL SPELT DIFFERENTLY, BUT I THINK THE 70'S WAS THE POPULAR DECADE THAT NAME, MY SPELLING IS (TAMEKA) WHICH I THINK IS MOST POPULAR ALONG WITH (TAMIKA) I KNOW OF ONE UNIQUE SPELLING FOR THE NAME (TAMMYKA) BUT ALL ARE PRONOUNCED The'sAME! MEEKS,MEKA, ARE FAV NICK NAMES FOR ME...YUP I'mEET A TAMEKA EVERY OTHER DAY!
I love my name! Tameka is the best and unique name out there. Where I'm from there is only and hand full. I found out that my name means "twin" but I'm not a twin. My nicknames consist of Meka, Mek Mek...(Meek Meek), and MeMe. It's a great name and I beli've everyone with the name'should be proud. :)
i love being name tameka because it is a specal name loser
i love my name its not ghetto where i come from.its a uniqe name in london
I'm apart of the Tameka in the late 70's.
I'm from the UK, and I spell it Tamika, still pronounced like Tameka. I used to hate having such a different name, but It's grown on me now. I have only ever met one other Tamika, in Jamaica. People calle me Tammy, Tami or Mika.
Almost a year later my comment is to Aneia. There is no such thing as a real or unreal name. Just as there is no correct spelling or incorrect spelling. If you are real your name is real. How ever you spell it pronounce it it is real. People have always created names and I suspect they always will. What is a "Ghetto Name"? If a Mary lives in the ghetto is Mary a ghetto name? I know hat people mean by that but come on lets not get into that celebrate who you are and embrace it.
hey my names tameka lol.im 13 from nz.i love the name tameka kuz im like the only tameka i know lol.
my name is tameka. I hate this name ahaha. People normally call me tam-i-ka. And i hate it even more ahaha. But the nickname i get out of it is meek. Now i like that.. ahaha its unique and thats what i am called. I found out the reason my mum actually called me "tameka" was because when she was pregnant with me she was walking across the'sydney harbour bridge and there was a lady there with her toddler aged child and she yelled out Tameka get bak here, and mum liked the name'so It'stuck! ahahaha... stupid mum!
My name is Tameaka, i've only met 1 person with my first and last name'spelt the exact way. It is a very common name in Jamaica and you soon find out You're not the only one with that name when You'reach high school. Though various spellings exist, we all share the'short version of meka, tammi, tee, meeks and of course the dreaded mispronunciation of our name. I have been called (tami aw ka) a few times..lol. when in high school I was told it was the name of an African princess. Though common, I loved it the more. I am an African princess and my name is Tameaka
My name is also Tamecka people often pronounce it Ta-mecca. I have had this name for 35 years.I always thought of it as a black name.
Its my name to only its spelt Tamika. Its an ok name but i prefer Mika. I hate being called Tammy its so annoying.
Some of these comments are funny yet ignorant. How does a Tameka look I wonder. My name is tomecca and no one has that.
I spell my name Tameka. People call me "Meka" or "Tee" People often pronounce it right but not always know if it is spelled with an I or an E. I have met one other person with the name Tameka, but she'spelled with an I. I often hear the name call when I am in a department storese. Men like my name, they think it reflects my personality, "sweet" and "honest"
We named our daughter Vada Jane. We love her name and it fits her perfect. Lots of people say they like it, probably alot of people don't. We really don't care what they think. I hope she doesn't hate it.
