"My name is Alisa (A-Lee-Suh) and I named my child Alysia (Uh-Lee-C-Ya) because she looks just like me and I wanted her to have a name similar to mine. This is the first time I have seen anyone with the same spelling. We call her Lisa and she absolutely loves her name, and so does all of her friends. The people that mispronounce her name call her Alicia (or sha), But she usually insists that people pronounce her name right, or just call her Lisa." Jun. 13, 2009:
"My name is Alysia and most people call me A-Lee-Sha. I also get called Alyssa, Alisa, Alice but not often. At anyrate, the name is pretty, the spelling is pretty but most people struggle to pronounce and spell it." Mar. 22, 2009:
"I pronounce it like Ali-Cia. Not with a SH sound. I love the name and it isn't very popular. Most people want to pronounce it witht he Sh sound. I found the name spelled Elicia first and changed the spelling to ALYSIA." Sep. 24, 2006:
"This is my name, and I love it because it's very unique. This is actually the first website I've found that even lists it. People often pronounce it wrong, but I don't mind because I'm used to it. I think this is a great name." Sep. 2, 2006:

"Alysia is my name and I pronounce it Alyssa.no one ever gets it right." May. 2, 2016:
"My name is Alysia and I've met a coupe of people with that name but spelt like Alicia. I've had many variations of the name like Alisha, Alyssa, a-lee-sh-a, whenever I start a new year I have to go through the month of correcting my name but now I've kind of given up, (One of my teachers still call me a-lee-cia) But I love it and I can have many nicknames such as: Lissy, Alis (Alys), Lis (Lys), also it's unique and I think it suits me." Jan. 2, 2015:
"ok my names alysha (uh-lee-sha) i put that there cuz everytime some1 sees my name and doesnt no me they always say (uh-lish-uh) err.. lol anyway im writing a story and i want to put a girls name down as alicia but sound like (uh-lee-c-a) do you think it would work?" Jul. 12, 2010:
"I named my daughter Alysia in 1976. I found the name in a baby book and liked the spelling and the meaning "captivating and binding" in Greek. I didn't know how to pronounce it, but felt a-lee-sha was the appropriate way, since it didn't have the same meaning as Alice and its various forms.
My daughter has also had problems with people knowing how to pronounce it, so when she started college she started going by Ally." Dec. 22, 2009:
"My name is alysia pronounced ah-lis-ah or alyssa I met an older lady in cracker barrel with same spellin and pronunciation. I hardly ever meet someone who can say it correctly or spell it right. I also answer to anything that starts with an a. I would suggest spelling it alyssa if that's the pronunciation you like. Other than that I get lots and lots of compliments on it. Some people I've known since child hood call me a-lee-cee-ah. Most always say alisha. I've also gotten elija lol" Oct. 30, 2009:
"Lol my friends name is Alysia but we all call her Lysie hahah its a cool nickname tho." Jul. 8, 2009:
"my name is Alysia pronounced with a "sh". I almost never get called my the right name and some of the things people come up with is ridiculous. I get anything from Ashley to Elijah....no idea how that one came about. I just answer to whatever people call me, usually if I here an 'A' name I have to pay attention. I do, however, like that no one I know has the same name.
My nickname is 'Leash' along with many variations of that. Know that if you name your kid Alysia they will be called Ally or leash for sure haha." Mar. 25, 2009:
"My girlfriend's name is Alysia and she is pretty cute!" Mar. 25, 2009:
"my name is alysia also. no one ever pronounces it right either. but when i correct them, they all love the way its spelled!! it makes me feel unique!" Oct. 13, 2008:
"My name is Alysia and people are CONSTANTLY getting it wrong. Usually 9 out of 10 people who meet me for the first time say it wrong. Just for the record I pronounce it A-Lee-Sha. Most people call me A-Luh-Sha (and by the way I have yet to meet anyone who says it like that). I also get Alyssa, A-Lee-Cia, and Alice.
The first day of school is always a challenge. By the time I was 10 I just gave up and let people call me by whatever name they like. A lot of times friends will correct for me because it become too difficult to correct everyone.
My only piece of advice for anyone considering nameing their child Alysia is to spell it Alicia. I find that most people are more fimilar with that spelling and will tend to get it right more often.
In the end I've learned to tolerate the way my name is spelled. It is unique and I have yet to meet anyone in the 20 years I've been on this planet who has spelled it the same way. But please, if you have a difficult last name (like I do) reconsider the spelling of your childs name :)

"Err...*pokes choo*. :3 Everyone calls their sisters SiSi. x3 And btw my name isn't Alysia, but it's pretteh!" Jul. 25, 2007:
"My best friend/sister's name is Alysia...I love her name! I call her Ally for short or SiSi." Mar. 11, 2007:
"Alysia is my name. I've never met anyone else who spells their name this way, but I've met a few Alicia's with the same pronounciation. I like having a name that is uniquely mine, but people contstantly mispronounce and mispell it." May. 18, 2006:
