"My name is Liza (duh) and I love it. I love this page too because sometimes I feel like the only one with this name! It's a unique name and I am happy to have it, exept when sub teachers mispronouce it. I'm in 6th grade now so this tends to happen often, lol." Dec. 10, 2018:
"This is my name too (like Liza Minelli) I alwayssss get Lisa/Leeza sometimes Eliza and I hate it when it gets mispronounced but when people say my name correctly I love it! Liza all the way!" Jul. 15, 2014:
"My name is Liza(pronounced Lyza), too! YAY! I'M SO AWESOME!!!:D" Jun. 27, 2014:
"yay. I'm liza and the only problem is I can never find my name on keyrings. Pronounced, Lee-za" Dec. 5, 2011:
"i love my name! ive never before met another liza and though people may say it wrong, its quite fun to correct them" Oct. 29, 2010:
"Two thumbs up, more if I had. My name is Liza Jeanette; pronounced Lie-Zuh Geeanet. I love my name and I have never met another Liza. When people see my name is writting 9 out of 10 times they will read out LiSa; I rarely correct people I think aslong as tey dont disrespect me then call me whatever they want, plus sometimes I rather not let people know its real pronunciation so im harder to find ;) . I love love love my name its girlie unique and firm. Liza Liza Liza!" Aug. 30, 2010:
"My name is Liza (like Minnelli), I'm 28 and from the moment I could talk, people have been mispronouncing it. Like many other posts on here, I hated it as a kid but grew to appreciate it as an adult. It's unique and different. My only complaint is that no matter how many times I say it and even when I introduce myself with the correct pronunciation, three words later and the person I'm talking to says "Oh and this is Lisa, we've been having a lovely talk." People can't retain the info for that long! I wouldn't change it now for anything though, it makes me memorable ;-)" Aug. 18, 2010:
"my name is liza pronounced leeza. i am russian!i love it!" Jun. 20, 2010:
"I love my name liza pronounced leeza, just get frustrated at times when people call me lisa. I don't know anyone else with my name." Apr. 5, 2010:
"My name is Liza too. People do pronounce my name as LiSa all the time, but still love my name b/c it's UNIQUE. And since it's unique, that's why people don't know how to pronounce it. I'll just have to keep correcting them :)" Dec. 29, 2009:
"I love having a unique name that describes me "unique" :)
People often call me Lisa, Leeza, Eliza and even Elizabeth. I correct them, but it's not a big deal." Jun. 4, 2009:
"Hey my name is Liza ! [Leeza not Lyza !]
lot's of people often mistake me as LYZA
which is quite annoying sometimes
i love my name :)
my teachers sometimes call me lisa hehe :P" Feb. 15, 2009:
"I am 14, and have loved my name since I learned it, never ever met another one, but substitute teachers are notorious for never being able to pronounce my name. The whole class corrects the teacher, they are tired of them saying Leeza and Lisa, I dont know why they don't get the whole Liza with a "z" thing. It's just, have you never heard of Liza Minnelli, honestly . . ." Feb. 12, 2009:
"I love this name. Reminds me of a beautiful freckle faced girl with braids playing in a field of flowers." Dec. 7, 2008:
"This is my daughter's name and it fits her to the letter. She is a bright, spunky, creative 8 year old. She is so much her own person it is beautiful. She lives up to her name. It also gets mispronounced, a lot. We get Eliza, liz, lisa, leeza you name it. We say, Liza, just Liza. L, long I za." Aug. 21, 2008:
"My name rocks! I tend to get people pronouncing it "Lie-za", though it's always been pronounced the way it's written, "Lee-za". I've never met another person with this name." May. 1, 2008:
"my daughter's name is Liza, it is diffrent you don't say it like Lisa. You say it like it looks. People never say her name right it makes me frustated...i'm not sure what to do." Apr. 14, 2008:
"My name is pronounced Lyza even though its spelled with an i. People will pronounce it wrong and spell it wrong all the time. But when I tell them how its pronounced they love it. They always say its a very cool name or a very pretty name.
I have only met one person other than myself with the name of Liza, and i know of only one or two famous people with the name of Liza. Liza Minneli is the one i know of most." Jan. 3, 2008:
"I love my name even though people rarely get it right the first time. It's pronounced like Lyza, but everyone says it Eliza, Lizza, Leeza, and many more.
When people don't know how to pronounce it, and are afraid of pronouncing it wrong they shorten it to Liz. I hate the name Liz.
If they have to call me anything but Liza, it should be Elizabeth(with a very awesome Z!)which is my real name." Jan. 3, 2008:
"i love0 .it be
caus my n
2e 0is lisa with an s" Dec. 23, 2007:
"My name is Liza, pronounced Lyza. As a child I hated my name because people always say it wrong. I have learned to love it because I am 31, and I have only encountered two other people in my life with the same name. It is better than having a very common name like Jennifer or Stacy." Dec. 11, 2007:
"Liza is my name, said leeza not lyza. people always say lisa, even when ive told them ten times, but people who know me well start to call people whose name is lisa, liza, so i guess its whatever your used to. its a cool name, i like that no one else has it." Aug. 21, 2007:
"This is my name. I never liked it growing up because I was the only "Liza" I had ever met...and all my friends had names that were common.
But now I love that nobody has my name! Even though everyone says it wrong. I usually get either "Leeza" or "Lisa"" Jun. 12, 2007:
"Though all my things clearly say LIZA on them, my algebra teacher still calls me Lisa. I know one other girl called Liza, but her real name is Elizabeth, where as mine is actually Liza." Nov. 6, 2006:
"I'm a Liza! But for strange reason people also calls me lisa - which is a total nono! But I was called Leila, L something... I always get what's your name again?!
But once they get the hang of it they always call it out non stop!" Nov. 6, 2006:
"its my name so i love it.. but, i pronounce it Leeza and spell it liza... maybe because i'm Australian/British as opposed to American :-) which means I'm pronouncing it the correct way.." May. 13, 2006:
"People pronounce it Lisa, Leeza. Them I tell them Liza, with a z like Liza Minelli. I've only meet 2 other Liza's in my life." Jul. 30, 2005:

"My daughters name is leeza I kept this spelling so it?s pronounced in that way. People oftenly call her Aleeza or sometimes even Lisa. I always have to correct that it starts with L and has a Z" Jun. 9, 2018:
"What is a big deal about how people pronounced your name? it just a matter of different accent!" Jul. 29, 2017:
"Hi my name is also Liza, and it?s pronounced as Leeza, like many others here, I've never met another Liza, when I was little every kid in my class called me Eliza which was really annoying, til now no one can get my name right and it?s kinda frustrating, but I really, really love my name anyway." Sep. 22, 2016:
"I'm from M?xico and My name is Liza too (like Liza Minelli). It's difficult for me to make people remember My name correctly and even some familiars and friends still call me Lisa. Didn't like My name before but now I know It is beautiful and uniqe. I thought I was the only one passing trought all this cause in My country don't speak english but now I feel better reading this (Sorry if My english isn't good)" Jan. 31, 2016:
"Okay so i don't know if it's a Canadian thing or not but EVERYONE only ever pronounces my name leeza or lyza, yet my name is ACTUALLY pronounced Lisa. I seemed to be the only one, but my mom decided to make my life hard on me from the beginning." Oct. 3, 2010:
"I know a famouse person who on the liva chat prnouced my name Lyza and lisa" Jun. 4, 2009:
"What a name to have! Won't change it for the world..mine is actually pronounced like Lisa reason being that in Spanish the letter Z sounds like an S..also my mom already has a sister named Lisa Spelled with an S also so SHe wanted me to be different! Good Luck to all My LIZA"S" May. 17, 2009:
"Yup, that's my name too.
I have the same pronunciation problems as everyone. I like my name, but I think it is too harsh for me. I wish my name were something softer sounding." Dec. 31, 2008:
"I too am Liza, and I'm FOREVER correcting people. I mostly get Lisa or Leeza. On more than one occasion I've had to correct a single person multiple times during a conversation. It gets frustrating for me. Probably 9.5 times out of 10 people say it incorrectly. I always say "Liza, like Liza Minnelli". I never understood how people get my name wrong when Liza Minnelli, who is famous, spells and pronounces it the same way..." Jun. 21, 2008:
"I love my name!! im english but pronounce it lyza - the proper way!! im always correcting people though...dont know why they find it so hard to get right!! for instance whenever i book a taxi they get it wrong. i have been called allsorts including lola!! im 19 and have never come across another liza and i love it. I would hate to have a name that was boring!!!" Mar. 27, 2008:
"My name is Liza an its pronounced Lyza, but people normally call me Lisa, Leeza or Eliza, But I dont really mind normally get used to it after a while lol. I haven't really met any others with my exact name and I think I like it because of that. its a great name=)" Oct. 15, 2007:
"My name is Liza, Pronounced also like leeza
not Lyza. and People who don't know me very well always call me lisa or Lyza sometimes they don't even say my name at all because it is confusing to them.
I even wear a name tag at work and it still is difficult even when I pronounce it for them. I see tham the next time and they would say hi 'Lisa - Linda - Eliza.
'But I still love my name'" Oct. 5, 2007:
"I love my name too, But like you know, everyone in USA calls me Lisa and in Europe Leeza. Like Liza said, My name is Liza with a Z not lisa with an s!!" Sep. 11, 2007:
"I love my name - Liza. The only complaint I have is that when people see my name in writing, they assume it is Lisa. I constantly have to correct people to tell them my name is Liza - with a Z. I've even had people try to correct me and tell me that my name should be pronounced LiSa. Funny!" May. 9, 2007:
"I love my name soo much! I'm the only person I've ever heard of, except Liza Minelli. I think it's a beautiful name!" Sep. 1, 2006:
