I love the Eye-EE-Sha pronunciation. It is common in the Muslim community though. But if you're not Muslim I think it would be more unique to name your daughter Aisha. I really like the sound of this name but I prefer the Eishia spelling.

Love it, but unusable because I'm white. (I would pronounce it ay-sha, by the way.)

This name is very popular in the Muslim community, where it is pronounced 'EYE-shuh'.

I love this name because of the song, "Isn't She Lovely".
Isn't she lovely? Life and love are the same. Life is Aisha; the meaning of her name...
