This is not common in Sweden, more so in Denmark I think. I think it sounds much nicer for Elisabeth than Lisa. [noted -ed]

I would assume a Lise was Norwegian or Danish (not English). I've always considered Lise the Norwegian and Danish form of Lisa. [noted -ed]

In Scandinavian countries the E would not be mute. It would be pronounced something like "LEE-seh" or "LEE-say".

I have co-worker who spells her name Lise, but pronounces it like Lisa.

This name is popular among French Canadians, particularly in Quebec, but it's pronounced Leeze, not Lisa or Lise. Personally I don't like the name.

There is this Danish childrens' song "Little Lise, little Lise got a red, red hat." This name reminds me of dolls. In Denmark we say "Doll Lise".

Lise is neat, but the variation Liseia is even better. I've only heard that name one time in my life before. And loved it ever since. Liseia (liss-SAY-yah); beautiful!

In France, this name would be pronounced "Leeze".

I've loved this name ever since I heard the French song "Lise" by Emilie Simon. It goes:

Lise prend des airs
Qui déstabilisent
Les valises de Lise
Sont pleines d'air

Lise sounds so sweet and beautiful. Reminds me of Elise, another name I love, but I prefer Lise to Elise. Lise is adorable. :)

Too boring. Alise is prettier and more elaborated!

This name is also spelled Lyse in France - e.g. French Canadian BBC journalist Lyse Doucet.
