I absolutely adore this name. It sounds so cute and is very beautiful. I also love Claire, but can't decide which one I like best.

Clarissa is my name and I like it, but I think it's a bit too girly for me. :)

I'm quite fond of Clarissa, though I fear its perception as "prissy."

Very beautiful. I actually would prefer 'Carissa' were it a real, traditionally used name (Clarissa was in use in the Middle Ages, and revived in the 18th century). But I like Clarissa a whole lot too.

It's a lovely name, so feminine and sensual, when I hear this name I imagine a beautiful girl or woman.

I used to not like Clarissa (most -issa names I find too "girly", and even obnoxious), but it has grown on me. At the moment, I can't figure out if I like Clarissa, Clarice, or Claire the most.

Clarissa is the name of one of the 'Two Fat Ladies' a wonderful British Cooking programme on T.V. I think she's the one who's still living.

As for my earlier debate between Clarissa, Clarice, and Claire (which later became Clare), I realized that Clara is the best of all the variants. Clarissa is still okay, though.

I think this is really a rather charming, gentrified and pleasant name. Lovely :)

I love this name! I think it's incredibly beautiful. I like it better than Clara (which is nice too, though).

I think Clarissa is a wonderful name that has never been overused. It's very feminine so no one will ever mistake Clarissa for a male. I think it's also a name that can grow and mature as needed. I am not fond of nicknames, but I once knew a girl named Clarissa and her nickname was Rissa.

It sounds sort of cutesy. :P I don't know why. It's not something I would name my kids.

This is definitely a girly name but I like it. It's pretty. It makes a nice sound when spoken and looks pretty when written.
