Nakeisha is a delightful topping for your little cinnamon bun! This moniker, which sprung up amidst African American communities in the 1960s, combines the prefix na with the American Keisha. Keisha, which is derived from the Hebrew name Qetzi'ah, appears in the Bible as the daughter of Job. Meaning "cassia" and "cinnamon," Nakeisha has literal roots in the beloved sweet-flavored spice from southern China. Whether sprinkled over stewing apples or balancing out the spicy aromas of curry, cinnamon, much like your Nakeisha, adds a dash of harmony to every environment they inhabit.
