Such a pretty name, very elegant. I like the pronunciation KNEE-sa.

Minimalist rubbish, and not pretty at all.

I love the way this name looks, but I'm not sure how it's pronounced.

Pronounced NIS-uh, with the "uh" being a schwa sound.

I know a girl who has this name and pronounces it NEE-sa. I like NIS-sa much better.

So my name is really unique? :) Hi to all users! I'm Nyssa from the Philippines!

My family pronounces my name as "Nay-za".

This name is one of my favourite ones. I saw it for the first time in one of Rick Riordan's books, named The Lost Hero. His Nyssa is daughter of Hephaestus. Also, I am writing books and one of the main characters is named Nyssa (she is emo).
