Alisa is UH-LISA or AY-LISA it is *NOT* E-LYZA or AY-LISSA. So if you ELIZAs and AYLISSAs pronunciations are getting angry that people don't know how to say your name, blame your parents-- not the people who are simply following the basic rules of phonics. Your parents, instead of trying to be unique, should have spelled your name properly.
I called my daughter Alisa. Poeple misspell her name to Alisha or sound it out A-Lisa. The name'supose to be sound like Alissa.
My name is Alisa pronounced Uh-lisa. I also have met someone with the'same name, only she pronounced it like Alissa (short I vowel). My mother in law called me Alisa, but always spelled my name Alicia for some reason :).
My Mother's name was Alice and my father wanted me named after her. She didn't want a child named after her'so this was a close name that'she loved. I love it too! But It is pronounced uh-Lisa or Lisa with and A.
My name is Alisa and I can say that I so agree with all the comments above, no one ever got my name right, it was always Alisha, Alyssa, Eliza, or Lisa lol. When I was younger it really bugged me. Now I just ignore it, i've learned to live with it.
i love my name but like the other alisa maaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnny people mispronounce it my dad named me alisa because he thought it would be easy to say but people just have problems saying it
I love my name, i live in the UK but also get called names such as Alicia and Elsa regulrly!
