The first name 
Alishba

Alishba is a first name for girls.

Alishba – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Alishba in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Alishba in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Alishba by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Alishba ranks at #5,552. That means there are 5,551 more common girls names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Alishba.
