  • "I was born in 63 and yes I?m a Lisa. My middle name is Marree. I know around 30 Lisa?s, all of varying ages. My best friend at school was a Lisa and her brother married a Lisa. I hated my name growing up but like most people I?ve accepted it. My Dad started calling me Lily when I was young and it has stuck, some people know me as Lisa and others know me as Lily."

  • "I love my name! My dad and his sister both wanted to name their first born daughters Lisa Marie. My aunt had 3 sons and no daughters before I was born. I am the only girl out of 9 grandchildren. So I guess it was meant to be me. My dad was always a huge Elvis fan. I was born in '72 when there were lots of Lisa's being born. Although...my name is not Lisa Marie. It is LaRee. :)" Jan. 20, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "In grade five there were five of us Lisa's long before Lisa Lisa and the cult jam :) I like my name, its soft, slinky, humble. Although ears perk up everytime someones talking about lease's and eyes double take when you see poorly printed 'made in USA', it can look like LISA. Lisa's have all been cool and kind people. I also fantasized about having a more masculine name, like Alexandra or Samantha, but now I adore the crisp simplicity of my name, and proud it comes from Elizabeth, name of countless short forms. Sometimes meeting new people I will tell them my name is Liesel, or Lisette just to add some spice. :)" Sep. 9, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm a guy born in late 1960s married to a woman named Lisa. Growing up, it seemed almost every girl in school I liked had this name and it was almost a running joke with my friends. I didn't realize until I was well past college how popular this name is with women of my generation. As a teacher, I now realize how rare a name it is in both little kids and teenagers today. Amazing how things change!" Sep. 28, 2012: Report as inappropriate

My mother's first name is Ruth and since she's 83, it's becoming dear to me. Every time I meet another Lisa, I ask her what her middle name is; I've never met another Lisa Ruth. I just happened to meet a Lisa today at the optometrist office and she must have been in her early 20s - Lisa Ann. My parents said I was named after their friends' Basset Hound.

  • "All through my life, I was known for meeting girls named "Lisa". I used to think it was some weird obsession with the name, but I now realize it's because I was born in the late 1960's and it was that era's version of "Emma" or "Brittany" or "Madison" for girl's baby names. I even married a Lisa. I bet in 2050 there'll be some middle-aged person posting something similar about a name like "Madison" or "Samantha" or something." Apr. 12, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Lisa Renee. I am 25 years old. Born in 1985. All through school I was the only Lisa. I've always liked my name. It's short, everyone can say/spell it & it's uncommon for people my age. I also like that there isn't a nickname. I wish I would have thought to name my daughter 'Lisa' one day. I think I fit the name Lisa though...dark brown hair, tall, lean, wears glasses, & smart/nerdy. Good name to call yourself! :-)" Feb. 21, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am a Lisa from the mid 70s and there were tons of Lisas at my school - elementary, Jr. High and High school. I always wanted a more sophisticated name like Elizabeth. I did like that no one ever misspelled my name, and four letters made it easy for crafts we did at school. Now that no one is being named Lisa anymore I like it a lot better, and I always thought my name sounded "cool". Cool girls are named Lisa!" Dec. 6, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Lisa Anne. I am an 1968 baby. It seemed like growing up that everyone was named Lisa. I was named after my grandmother (Elizabeth) and Anne after my Mom (Ann). I often wished I had a different name, but now that I am older, it isn't that bad." Nov. 15, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm another of the 1000's of Lisa's from the 70's. Sharing my name with someone in class or at work is just part of my life. I'm fine with my name and if asked to pick a new name I would just stick with mine. It's easy to say and spell and no one has to ask me my name twice. My husband has a more uncomman name with different spellings and he always has to correct people and spell his name. I would find that annoying. The only thing I hated about growing up with my name was that even though if seemed like half the world was named Lisa, it rarely ever showed up on TV or in movies."

I'll ask people whether they'd prefer to pronounce it Lisa or lee-see-a because i like both." Aug. 21, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I like my name - Lisa Marie - although I didn't for a long time. I'm 26 and a couple of my friend's in elementary school had mom's named Lisa. Everyone thinks my parents were Elvis fans and that had nothing to do with it. My sister is named Liberty so I grew up thinking my name was boring comparatively. Now I think that my name is just as unique because of being named after its peak popularity and not many people in my age group have the same name." Aug. 20, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "Although there were always other Lisas in my classes at school, now I don't find too many. It is funny to hear that it is now considered by some to be an "old person's name." I am 41, and I guess that's pretty ancient when you are 16. I guess "Lisa" is to girls these days what "Elenor" was to me when I was 16! Yikes!" Apr. 19, 2010: Report as inappropriate
