Allah and Ahlulbait guided you to the right path. Be thankful on this.

Your name does NOT take you out of religion. You can change your name. If you live in a biased environment that if you choose a Shia name, people may kill you, then keep having Ayesha name. 

You need to show your faith and religion to Allah and Ahlulbait not to Most Shia People. Say this to that person who told you:" Most Shia people will not accept you because of your name"

The name does not reflect the niyya ie inside heart feeling of a person.  Allah swt has guided you to the path of the progeny of the prophet Muhammad saaw, its thy mercy on you as the quran states that no one can be a believer without thy permission.

Salaam Sister, 

Welcome to the path of Ahlulbait (ams). 

While there might not be an issue with you becoming shia with name Ayesha, it would be better if you can get another name (because of people judging). You can keep Ayesha for official purpose and in your documents but you can let people call you Zehra, Zainab, etc.

You don't have to listen to them, for they are not representatives of Islam/shia'ism. Ignore them. If you want to ask someone, you can contact a local shia aalim or you can also ask your questions on this site. We have knowledgeable brothers here. 

Goodluck.

Noone can tell you not to be a shia. Even if the whole world gathers up and tells you that.  Islam and ahlulbayt is for everyone.

There were many companions of the Imams (as) named Muawiyah, Yazeed, Umar, Uthman and Abu Bakr who narrated ahadith from them, just pick up a random book from the Kutb al-Arbah and see for yourself. These were common Arab names back then and not associated with the specific individuals that they imply today.
A name doesn't mean anything.
I have not changed my name after I converted to Islam, neither am I going to change it.

There are other reports about the children of Imam al-'Askari (a) as well. Some have listed three sons and three daughters for him.[23] Al-Khasibi has listed two sisters named Fatima and Dalala for Imam al-Mahdi (a)[24] and Ibn Abi l-Thalj has mentioned a brother called Musa and two sisters called Fatima and 'A'isha (or Umm Musa) for Imam al-Mahdi (a)

If you know that we don't have a caste system, then you can disregard them, Ayesha. Also,  don't worry about your name, Imam Ridha (as) had a daughter named Ayesha, so the name wasn't an issue for the Ahlulbayt (as). Also Shias are Muslims.  so I don't know what their problem is. You can be Shia if you want.

As has been pointed out by everyone, your name and your caste has no importance whatsoever. As long as you believe in Allah, the Prophethood of Muhammad and Imamah, you are automatically a Shi'a. After that, even if the whole world tells you you're not a Shi'a, it doesn't matter and they're not important.

Secondly, while I can't speak to the people you may know, I have met a lot of Shi'as from India and they don't believe in all this caste system. If the people you know are so hung up on your caste, I suggest you branch out and find Shi'as from other mosques, especially those from larger cities, and you're sure to find proper Shi'as who don't believe in the caste system.

Salaam.

My advice. Keep your name. 

Thats the name you have been given. Its a gift. Dont change it. My personal advice only.

Its a name, and it can even be used as part of Dawah. Name itself doesnt define a person. Your actions do.

The name Aysha is beautiful.

Salam he says it because he doesn’t want that you become Shia Muslim as @alidu78 Sa’id before many Nigerian new converts have names as Abubakr,Omar Uthman ,Mamun  even Aysha

Sister,

you name has nothing to do with your beliefs.

But if you feel uncomfortable with that name, you can always change it.

How far do you live from Hyderabad?

Hyderabad has a fairly  large Shia population.

What is dangerous about following the Quran? 

الَّذِينَ جَعَلُوا الْقُرْآنَ عِضِينَ ﴿٩١

Those who made the Quran into shreds. (91

http://tanzil.net/#trans/en.shakir/15:91

There is no danger for following Quran but these groups interprets Quran in their favor not in its true way & at last count other people as Kafirs as Khawarij were just reading the Quran but by their  false interruption which now comes in these new forms , they left speaking Quran the Imam Ali (as) & stick to papers blindy thus completely astrayd from way of truth
