I like this name. My middle name is Alyssa and it is pronounced as A-Lie-Sa.

My name is Alyssa, but I always pronounce it as Alessa like the girl from Silent Hill. I have used it as such, since I was little.

Uh-liss-suh.

I was born in 1977, and growing up in the 1980s and early to mid 1990s, I knew no one with that name. It was not a popular name and no one knew how to pronounce it. My name is pronounced "Uh-LEE-suh", which is how it is pronounced in my mother's country of birth. Although, I know that many go by "uh-LIH-suh", more likely because of Alyssa Milano. I'm used to people pronouncing it that way, although I will correct them as it is not the pronunciation I was born with. What I don't appreciate is when people tell me that my pronunciation is "wrong" and think it's okay to "correct" me. No, there is more than one way to pronounce it, especially since it is pronounced differently depending on your language... Like most names. While I don't pronounce it like "uh-LIH-suh" I'm not going to tell someone it is wrong, especially if they were born with that pronunciation and they like it.
