    I pronounce it A-CAY-SHE-AH, so a bit of a combo of the above! I don't know if I pronounce it correctly though

    I think it depends where you're from as to how you pronounce it. It's a bit like the Castle/CaRSle debate. Neither is wrong or right. Personally I would say A-CAY-SHUH, but then I say castle not caRsle lol. My mum would say A-CAY-SEAH.

    BTW this was not based on how castle is pronounced lol.

    I used to study forestry and I would say SHA which I think is closer to the first one.

    But, again, I think it does depend a little on where you are from.

    Id say a-kay-sha too like the plant.
    However its a bit like Alicia - some people say a-leesh-a and others say A-lee-see-a.

    It depends where you're from, but probably also what you prefer. I had a friend whos name was Eleine, but her parents preferred to pronounce it E-LEE-NEE.

    I would say A-kay-sha. Named after the golden wattle. Beautiful.

    I love this name and wanted it for my first daughter, but my partner wasn't into it. I don't like alternative spellings of it though.
