"my names allyssa and honestly i would have hated my name if it was spelt ?alyssa? or any other way. sooooo many people have the name but my version of allyssa always stands out . some people say it?s a weird spelling but it?s the only spelling for the name that isn?t old." Jul. 12, 2019:
"I love this name! I named my baby girl this and we spelled it a little different. It is spelled Allysa (two 'L's one 'S') We call her Ally all the time, and her middle name is Catherine so we also call her 'Ally Cat' I hope she likes it when she is older, but for now we get TONS of compliments on her name from everyone that meets her!"

"My name is ALLYSSA, and I don't think it should be spelled any other way - it's UNIQUE. And symmetrically pleasing to the eye. My last name also has two LL's side by side, and overall, I think my parents added the extra L in Allyssa for that reason. Good job Mum and Dad! :)
I too, have never met someone with the same spelling as myself - and I rather like that. The only negative I will say, is I have NEVER been able to find ALLYSSA written on anything, ie. necklaces, key chains, lanyards, apparel, etc. But I have gotten over that with time." Oct. 22, 2019:
"my boyfriends sister's name is spell just with one l, and i really like it" Mar. 18, 2009:
"Well my name is Allyssa, and sure, people spell it wrong. Get over it, that's what we get for having a unique name.
I, for one, love it." Feb. 5, 2009:
"my friends name is allyssa spelled that way and everyone compliments how unique the spelling is" Dec. 19, 2008:
"My name is ALYSSA not ALLYSSA. The double L is really weird. I also have the problem where people always say my name wrong. The say ALISA pronounced uh-lisa instead of alyssa. I also hate when people call me aly cause it has no comparison to the name so my friends and family usually call me lyss." May. 23, 2008:
"my name is alyssa not allyssa whats with the double ll the ll exagerates it a bit anywayy. i hate being called aly its too plane and really not that nice of a nick name so i prefer my friends and family calling me alyssa" Nov. 2, 2007:
"My mom decided to spell my name Alissa. I always hated it growing up because people would never pronounce it correctly. However, as I'm trying to name my kids, I appreciate the uniqueness. Now it's a common name, but when I was in school I was the only Alissa around." Mar. 14, 2006:
