I'm curious as to why Nameberry thinks Nisha won't translate well to English countries... living in America I know a couple Indian-Americans named Nisha and no one has ever commented on it. It seems to work just fine and is a very pretty name.

I don't really see what is so unusable about this name for anglophones... Seems like a lovely name to me

My name is Neisha! I think they should add my spelling as a variation. Also, I have been told by many friends who are from India and speak Hindi, that the name translates to "Beautiful Night"
