My mother and grandmother think Lissa is pronounced like Lisa (Lee-sah). But if it was, wouldn't Melissa sound like Mel-lee-sah and not Mel-lis-ah?

"Lissa" is the name of the fox in all Bulgarian folk tales in which a fox takes part. "Lissa" is the most popular animal in the Bulgarian folk tales, "she" is famous for "her" cunning and dodgå, "her" skill to lie "herself" out of a scrape. The name of the fox - "Lissa" - comes from "lisitza", which is the Bulgarian word for "fox". In Bulgaria "Lissa" is not used for a woman's name.

"Lissa" is also the name a Bulgarian mountain, which is a mountain from the eastern part of "Stara planina" (or (the) "Balkan") - the longest and the largest of the Bulgarian mountains.

This name, along with common sense, is pronounced like LISSA on the name Melissa.

Coincidentally, the Greek word for 'queen' is 'vasilisa' (or 'vasilissa' if you transcribe the word letter for letter), so "Lissa" could be taken as a contraction of the word and mean 'queen' also.

It came from the name Alyssa/Alissa before it came from the name Melissa.

There is a very dear girl to me who's name is Lissa, but her real name is Elisabeth. I think both of these names are immensely beautiful.

I have always loved this name, especially since it's the name of one of my nieces. (My niece Lissa is older than me. All of my nieces are. Yeah, I'm the baby in the family.) Anyway, it's a glorious name, in my opinion.

Could also be a nickname for Alissa/Elissa.

My name is Melissa and Lissa is one of my favorite nicknames. I saw above that Lissa can be a nickname for Elisabeth as well - I like that!
