"I think you name your kid whatever you want, when I grow up I wanted to name my son Victoria and my other son Shakira" Jan. 4, 2020:
"I like the name Melissa for a boy. It different and unique. I have met a few men with the name Michelle as it's more common than Melissa but seen nothing wrong with it either. It's hard to find new boys names today and as so many girls now use what use to be boys names I see nothing wrong with it. I give it 2 thumbs up !" Sep. 4, 2017:
"My name is Melissa, and my nickname has always been Liss, Lissa or Lissy. Always find it strange when someone calls me Mel, that always makes me think of Melanie. Thankfully it's always pronounced right, if only people could keep straight the single L and double s when spelling it!" Nov. 29, 2009:

"I happen to be one of the unfortunate guys with the name Melissa. Not that I ever went by that name Very few know thats my birth name . Now I use MJ as my name ( my middle name is John ) The only one that teases me is my wife times like when I take to long to get ready when we go out she will call me Missy. I have gotten over it now and doesn't bother me anymore." Jan. 27, 2016:
