As a form of Lanisha, Lanesha is a feminine name brought to life in African-American culture. This lyrical title gracefully trips off the tongue and holds a somewhat enigmatic origin. As a blend of the lovely sounds “la,” “nee,” and “sha,” Lanesha carries no definition in particular, opening up a world of possibilities for your little one. However, Lanesha may have been inspired by adding “La-” to the Indian Nisha, lending the starry-eyed meaning of “night” or “midnight.” Whether drawn to its freeing ambiguity or in love with how it mirrors baby’s night owl personality, Lanesha is a sweet choice for a little star with big dreams.
