My name is Anissa pronounced uh-nee-suh and I don't have a middle name. It is almost always mispronounced and misheard almost everytime I introduce my self as "lisa" or "alisa". People always tell me its beautiful and all my friends love it becuase its unique and nobody else in my school or town has it. I sometimes like it becuase it is unique but it is annoying correcting people all the time. My dad is arabic he told me my name means "friendly".

My middle name is Anissa. I'm Tammy Anissa and go by Tammy (which I don't like) The name came from the TV Guide. Anissa Jones was Buffy in Family Affair. My first name also came from the TV Guide and the Tammy movies. I am 44 and was presumed to be a boy, so I guess they needed a name quick. I do like the name Anissa but I have a half sister named after me so I cannot go by my middle name.

My name is Annissa....pronounced Ah-Nee-sah..and I LOVE it! Unfortunately hardly anyone ever pronounces it correctly...which is why I wound up being called Shelly...because my middle name is Michelle and there were WAY too many of those around so "Shelly" it was...which suits me I guess. Annissa is so beautiful and glamorous...Michelle is too and I'm just a bubbly, spunky chick so Shelly suits me better but I can hope that one of my children will name a grand daughter Annissa.
