Comments for ELISA:

My name is Elisa, and I really like it apart from the fact that it's hard for people to remember or pronounce straight away. I get called Alyssa, Eliza, Elise, Elsa, Elsie and Ailsa. It is pronounced the same as 'Lisa' with an 'E' on the front, ie: el-ee-sah.

When I was in Italy and Spain and began spelling out my name to people (as is my habit), they were slightly offended because it's a common name in Europe. The 's' is pronounced more like a 'z' though, ie: el-ee-zah.

My name is Elisa and I love it, often mis-pronounced but when it is pronounced correctly, Lisa with an E on the front, it is strong, attractive and distinct.

Elisa as most of the names started with "eli" comes from the Hebrew "Elyasa" and it means with the help of god.

Elisa is one of my favorite names! I think it is so pretty, and I like the middle name Charlotte with Elisa. Elisa Charlotte!

I don't really like this name, I used to but now I know someone not very nice with this name. It was very pretty BEFORE though.

One of my best friends' name is Elisa. We pronounce it a-LEE-sa. She gets called Alise, Eliza, Alyssa, and a bunch of other names. Her real name is not Elisabeth though, just Elisa.

I went to school with a lovely girl called Eliisa, I love the name. She spelt it with double 'i' in the middle which I really like.

Elisa di Rivombrosa, anyone?

I think it is a wonderful name! It's very pretty and old fashioned. My name is Elysa with a y. I think spelling it like that makes it even more pretty and unique.

This name actually comes from Greek mythology, Elysian fields meaning "most beautiful" because in the underworld there were four places and this was the second level of heaven and it was said to be the most beautiful place like anywhere.

This name doesn't have to be short for Elisabeth either! It can be just plain Elisa on the birth certificate, which I personally prefer.

Napoleon Bonaparte had a younger sister named Elisa Bonaparte (1777-1820). She was the Grand Duchess of Tuscany and named her only daughter Elisa as well.

I prefer this name to Elise. Pronounced el-EE-sa, I think it is a pretty name, and I find it strange that I dislike the name Lisa when I like this name. This would be a good nickname for Elizabeth, more original than Liz or Beth.

Much prettier than Lisa or Alyssa!
