I read somewhere that this name is Greek meaning "cheerful".

To me it sounds like a name of an R&B or rap singer. LaRissa. I dislike it.

Larissa is a very pretty name for a girl. Not heard of very often which is nice.

Larissa Hodge is the name of Bootz on Flavor of Love season 2, even though I'm quite sure none of you guys know or even heard of what that is. But Larissa is still a very pretty name.

It sounds very childish. I don't like it a lot.

From what I have researched Larissa appears to mean 'Ocean' in Greek, maybe that's where the 'seagull' connitation came into being. Anyhow okay name.

While I actually like Marissa, and Melissa is so common that it sounds mature to me, this name, along with Carissa and Clarissa, just sounds really girly and youthful. It sounds too cutesy for a grown-up, somehow.

I'm not really sure why I like this name, but I think it has something to do with the "L" at the beginning. I think it rolls off the tongue easier than Karissa or Carissa. I also like Clarissa.

This is one of the only "-issa/-isa" names that I like. Just, please, don't spell it "LaRissa".
