Comments for ALYSSIA:

I made up the name Alyssia. My daughter's dad had family members who already had the two names I liked - "Alyssa" and "Alicia" - so I decided to combine the two names and came up with Alyssia. I thought it was unique and different. I personally have never seen anyone else wih the name nor seen it in a book of names.

The problem with the name is that it can be so mispronounced. My name is Alyssia but it is pronounced like Alicia. The nurse and my dad didn't know how to spell it so I'm left with this, not that I'm complaining.

I made this name up for a story I wrote. It's a variation of Alyssa and Alessia.

My sister is called Alyssia. We call her Lissie for short.

My name is Alyssia and it is pronounced uh-lee-see-uh. It is so hard to get people to realize that that is the way to pronounce my name. I don't see why people name their daughters Alyssia and decide it should be pronounced uh-lee-sha. There is no h in my name. Maybe it is just me.

I named my daughter Alyssia in 1999. I loved the actress Alyssa Milano. And no one in my family (that I know of) had this name. So I had decided to put an "I" in there. Thinking I was being creative. Goes to show how the world is small and people do have the same thoughts. Although we do have problems with people calling her "Lisha". We have to say politely, "that is not how her name is spelled. We call her Aly (Ah-lee) for short. No matter the trouble of how people pronounce her name, it is still one of my favorites.

Ok. I named my daughter Alyssia in January 1994. We are of Latin origin and in Spanish the name Alicia is pronounced with the c as an "s" and not "sh" as the ci does in the English language and I wanted her name to be pronounced in the Latin way. So I "made up" the name Alyssia. Until today when I logged on this site I have not known anyone else with this name spelt this way.
