"Wow... just wow. I have the EXACT same problem, and tell people the EXACT same thing. It's Lissa like Melissa with out the 'me.' NOT LISA! I hate and despise the name Lisa as I have been mistakenly called that all my life. When I waitressed I just went by Alissa or Alyssa. Far less confusing. BUT I still love my name. =)" Feb. 9, 2006:
"This is my name too!I 100% agree with the above comment! My name always gets spelt and pronounced incorrectly. I love my name because of its rareity.

"This is my name. I like having a unique name but you would be surprised how often people call me "Lisa" or spell my name wrong. For some reason people in this country have a hard time with phonics! It is Lissa like Melissa without the "me"." Jun. 13, 2005:

"My name is lissa too and all my 16 years of life so far i had to correcet people on how to say my name and that it is spelled that way. When i was born my mom wanted it to be spelled "Lisa" but my dad said no that is not how you spell it . so my name is lissa. maybe the reason why i have an extra "s" is because maybe i am special."
