My parents named my sister Elissa by just dropping the "M" off of Melissa.

A million times prettier than Dido in my opinion, and very rare.
In fact, the only time I've heard it used was in "The Phantom of the Opera", when it's the name of the lead female role of the opera-within-the-musical "Hannibal". It's Elissa (played by Christine) who sings "Think of Me" at the begining of the show.

I recently met a girl named Elissa, and she pronounced it ee-LIS-uh. I think it's quite pretty.

Elissa and Becca are two sisters who form The Sonflowerz music group. Look them up!

I think this is an absolutely gorgeous name.

"Elissa" is the name of a song by The Cruxshadows, on their Dreamcypher album. The name's description mentions that Elissa was Dido's other name, and there is also a song called "Dido's Reply" on the same album.

It's very pretty, but still far too close to the boring Alyssa for my taste.
