I'm Lisa Ruth, born in 1972. Always loved the name Lisa, but hated Ruth. Now I don't mind it and have starting introducing myself as Lisa Ruth. My mother's first name is Ruth and since she's 83, It's becoming dear to me. Every time I'meet another Lisa, I ask her what her middle name is; i've never met another Lisa Ruth. I just happened to meet a Lisa today at the optometrist office and she must have been in her early 20s - Lisa Ann. My parents said I was named after their friends' Basset Hound. LOL

All through my life, I was known for meeting girls named "Lisa". I used to think it was some weird obsession with the name, but I now realize It's because I was born in the late 1972's and it was that era's version of "Emma" or "Brittany" or "Madison" for girl's baby names. I even married a Lisa. I bet in 2050 there'll be some middle-aged person posting something similar about a name like "Madison" or "Samantha" or something.

12/4/2022 6:52:52 AM

12 Lisas in my high school (1990). I'm certain Elvis started the temporary surge.

12/2/2022 3:12:22 PM

My name is Lisa Marie I'm 13. I feel awkward with my name, I feel old and it reminds me of Elvis Presley's Daughter :(

11/29/2022 1:26:24 PM

I know way too many lisa's and they all have the'same second name Marie!

11/28/2022 8:41:18 PM

i love my name lisa. it is simple no one ever mispronounces it and it matches well with my surname.

11/27/2022 3:53:14 PM

When I find out i was going to have a baby I saw the name Kayleigh on a baby names website and decided it was perfect. i never even discussed the name with the baby's father, i just told him her name was going to be Kayleigh. Luckily he liked it too so i didn't have to do much convincing. Later I found out the name means keeper of the keys and then i liked it even better because i've always collected antique keys.

11/21/2022 6:11:00 AM

Ive always felt uncomfortable with my Im in the middle of making a huge change to my life and changing my name entirely...both first and last. I want to change Lisa to Lucy. And Im so scared to tell my parents! I dont want to insult them, but I think its something I need to do for myself and I dont know how to explain this to people. Quite the predicament.

11/15/2022 5:38:22 PM

my name is Lisa Nicole. big kudos to my parents, because i think those two names just sound beautiful together. I'm actually thinking of hyphen'ting them to use as my first name. i was born in '91, so my name Isn't that common with kids my age but i know lots of lisas my parents age. i think that'shortening lisa is just unnecessary, i only let very good friends call me lise, and my best friend calls me lee.

11/12/2022 4:42:20 AM

My name is Lisa (middle name Ellen). I love my name. Its my surname that is prnounced wrong, never my name. But the author Jackquline Wilson did ask me do i spell my name with a z or a s, i replied with a s.

11/11/2022 1:25:24 PM

im Lisa Marie born in the late 80's!!My grandmother was well happy when she heard i was called lisa as she was elizabeth but mum said it was because she liked the name of elvis presleys daughter...ive had a few mispellings and pronuncations such as liza and pronounced lee-za its been shortened to lis.its an ok name but wish id been named something a little less known.

11/10/2022 4:12:50 AM

Mi name is lisa and im loving it.... i duno it just sums me up in one simple name lol....... u shudnt change ur nme bcoz dats who u r..... Lisa is a fab name and im loving it xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

11/8/2022 8:46:04 PM

My name is Lisa and I was born in 1992s. I was sometimes teased and called Lisa Liza Minelli which was later'shortened to Liza Liza Lot (Lisa lies a lot). Fun times. I plan to give my children classic names so no one can guess how old they are just by their names.

11/7/2022 3:05:06 PM

My name is Lisa. I was born in the late 60's. I went to school with a lot of Lisa's. I hated that growing up. You never knew if someone was callin you or 'the other' Lisa. I hated the confusion. I don't hate the name itself, just how common it is among my age group.

11/4/2022 12:26:14 PM

GAHH Im Lisa Marie. Named after Elvis presleys daughter and its also apart of my family. i was supposed to be named Liselott [which is swedish] Marie [marie after my moms bets friend] but my mom and grandma loved elvis presley so they chose, Lisa Marie(:

11/3/2022 10:02:12 PM

I'm a Lisa, I'm not sure if i like it though It'sounds too plain.

11/3/2022 7:41:08 PM


11/2/2022 6:42:18 PM

My daughter is Lisa Jessica, she was born in 2009! I liked the name lisa, because It's a short name and I think It's a beautiful name.

10/27/2022 8:27:46 PM

wow my naem is kaela too! im fourteen and i cant beili've other people have thier name'spelled like that! the only down part is that they dont make cute things with our name on it.. but we could use our nicknames, like kay.. i find a lot of really cute things with the nickname kay on It'so you other kaelas might wanna think about looking for things with your nickname on it! pcee

10/23/2022 2:46:38 PM

Every Lisa I have ever known has been a self-centered witch... (like every Jennifer i've known has been an egotistical know-it-all).

10/23/2022 11:15:02 AM

In my high school, there is nobody but me named Lisa. I dislike my name. Its just so boring, the only good thing about it is that its short. Its not a bad name, but its average. i've always wanted a name change.

10/23/2022 8:01:04 AM

It's such a happy name! It's easy to be cheerful when you get to introduce yourself as LISA

10/23/2022 3:01:18 AM

My name is Leesa and I have never met anyone with the'same spelling in England. People often pronounce it Leeza, but most people comment on what a nice way of spelling it.

10/20/2022 4:14:38 PM


10/16/2022 4:40:50 AM

i liked that not too many people had the name, but the meaning doesn't fit me at all. i have never been terribly religious and as i have matured i have given up on the imaginary friend altogether

10/13/2022 1:09:04 AM

my name's lisa and I'm quite happy with it. Could have been worse and been called sharon or tracey!

10/11/2022 9:31:32 PM

My names Lisa and i've always thought it was boring and unoriginal. Elizabeth always sounded more appealing to me. Strangely, people often spell the name wrong thinking I said Something else like "meesa" or "ter'sa" probably just because It's short and i say it fast

10/3/2022 1:37:54 AM

I changed sex so got to choose my own name! I chose Lisa Jane and obvously I absolutely love it.

10/1/2022 1:43:40 AM

I'm Lisa Jane and I think It's such a cute combo. No-one in my class has ever had the name Lisa, even from P.1. Lucky me, eh? I don't really like Lisa Marie. It's gone out of style. But I still like Lisa!!

9/21/2022 1:54:52 AM

I'm Lisa Michelle, born in 1974. I like my name. Not many people have it, but people know it and it doesn't get mispronounced. Not many young people with the name Lisa.

9/18/2022 7:50:20 PM

I was also named Lisa after the character in As the World Turns! My mom says that's the reason there were so many Lisa's in the 60's!

9/18/2022 6:36:50 AM

I'm Lisa Marie; born before the "famous" one. i've always liked my name. The only problem was in elementary school in the 70's; there was a lot of us. However, now I don't hear it that often. Also, seeing young girls being named Lisa. That's nice. I don't think It's an old name...sweet, romantic and i've been'told It's a "sexy" name. No complaints.

9/18/2022 2:12:20 AM

i really need to possess a life. PLEASE, SOMEONE DELETE THE NAME OR SOMETHING. i hate my name -_-

9/8/2022 2:08:52 PM

why did you name your kid unique if there is more than 1 unique's is the world

8/10/2022 11:51:18 AM

Hi I'm Lisa Jane I love Lisa It's so soft feminine and pretty.I drives me mad!! when It's pronounced LIZA or LEEZER.Cant people recognise the difference between an S and a Z?

7/27/2022 6:27:18 PM

I'm Lisa Anne. 1989. I grew up with my mom telling me Lisa was a combo between her'sister Linda and my dad's sister Leslie. When I hit around 38 my dad tells me it was really after a girl her went to school with in the 50's named Lisa who wasn't very cute, but was very nice to him. I like my name, but just today I was called both Liza and Leslie. No name is perfect I suppose.

7/24/2022 9:56:06 AM

In my personal opinion, Lisa is The Best name i've ever heard. Nothing compares to the'sheer elegance in those four letters. Meeting other people named Lisa is always so exciting. Back in middle school, I'met another Lisa for the first time, and we did this thing where whenever we passed each other in the hallway, I?d say ?Hi Lisa,? and she?d say ?Hi Lisa.? Nothing beats that'sense of camaraderie. I think the world would be a better place if there were more people named Lisa in it. Never mind that there?s already been a million or so of us. We need more. Nothing can stop us.

7/22/2022 4:51:54 AM

What's wrong with the letter C? "Kaleb" was not in the Bible, "Caleb" was.

7/5/2022 6:30:00 PM

I'm Lisa Ellen, and I also have never met another with that combo. For the most part I love my name except when my family from boston call me Lisar Ellen. My favorite is lili, reserved only for those that are close.

6/25/2022 9:30:54 PM

I was born 80 days after Lisa Marie and I hated my name growing up, when'the teacher called on Lisa, half the class answered. When I was 8 yrs. old I saw my neighbors name at our lake home was Lissa and I started writing it that way and made it legal later. Now I love my name, it is me.

6/18/2022 11:54:00 PM

My names Lisa and my parents stupidly called my sister Maggie- how often would i be asked if i had a brother called Bart- or a dog called Santa's little helper.

5/27/2022 7:28:30 AM

HI'my name is Lisa Anne-Marie and I was born in the mid 60's - I like my name but I didnt like my name being as common as it was when I was at school - now days in my 40's I rarely come across another Lisa. I got called Lisa after my mother who is Elizabeth she had an Italian pen freind who like to call my mother Lisa. My sisters and friends always shorten my name to Lee or Lis which is no surprize being London and my husband calls me lisee lol. My mother'said when she called me Lisa she knew of no other babies who were called Lisa until Lisa Presley was born and then'there were Lisa's popping up everywhere lol. Still I think I suit Lisa, couldnt imagine being called anything eles and think it will be quite cool in 30 years time there will be tons of old ladies called Lisa instead of iris or gladis - whats strange is I became a grandma earlier this year for the first time and It'seems my daughters generation (80's) are calling their children after flowers my granddaughter is called Lily haha :D

5/24/2022 6:10:12 PM

Im Lisa Marie and I was born in 78 I was going to be Lisa Sian but my dad did not know how to spell sian so put marie instead. I hate being called Liza and I quite like my name. Its not popular at all now but I think it will make another appearance

5/19/2022 11:54:00 AM

I actually never liked the name Lisa and wished i could change it.My grandma used to call me lissa(sounds like melissa but without the me).When my boyfriend found out my g-ma used to call me that,he'started calling me that too because he'said he loved that name'so,now its kinda like a name change but without all the

5/8/2022 5:52:12 PM

I am a Lisa Marie but I am older than Ms. Presley!! I like the name and friends call me lis Lees

5/5/2022 11:10:48 AM

I think my name is too plain and simple. It really annoys me. I wish I had been named Elisabeth or something, so at least Lisa wasn't my only name.

5/1/2022 1:57:18 AM

Im also a lisa marie but mine is lisa- Maree, Kinda sets me apart from other lisa maries!

4/24/2022 6:58:48 PM

My sister is named Lisa Paige, she is 14. She is super'smart and funny and she gets along well with children who are older around 6-10 when she watches them. She loves her first name but she absolutely hates Paige. Personally, I think the name'suits her'spunky personality!

4/21/2022 4:51:54 PM

Ouch!!!Lisa is an "old" person name!?! I guess I really am old!!?(born in '58).n Im Lisa Lynn, and i've always loved the'sound of those together..really symmetrical and lyrical, like a natural pairing.

4/12/2022 2:10:48 PM

Lisa is my name, Well my real name is Elizabeth, but this is a great nickname, Sweet and Simple!

4/9/2022 11:02:42 PM

I am a Lisa Marie born in 1991. Never really liked the name because I felt it was too short, not unique, no good nicknames, no cool meaning (hostname books said 'see Elizabeth'. No, my name is NOT Elizabeth, lazy book writers! I would've preferred to be named Lisa Marie as my first name, which I was called in 3rd grade since there were too of us. I can say that'school was as inundated with Lisas like it was with Melissas, Saras, Jennifers, and Jessicas, but I was jealous of friends with unique names like Patience, Amara, Serena, Darcy, Maija. I was surprised living in the area just south of San Francisco (where the electric koolaid acid tests were being conducted) that there weren't more far out names. Oh well, I don't mind Lisa a much these days.

4/8/2022 8:30:36 PM

Born in 1996, i've only known about 2 other Lisa's and they always seem to be very nice. I love my name, spcially since i was born on the 4th of July and when you put the L and I together in "lisa" It looks like USA, and I always loved seeing my name being celebrated everywhere

4/2/2022 2:33:18 AM

I was born in 1981...the year after Lisa Marie hence, my name... Lisa Marie. Mom was a HUGE fan of Elvis'. i've always hated the name...mostly because I can't picture me in being a Grandmother with the name Lisa...that and I can't stand the fact that I am named after Elvis' daughter.

3/28/2022 2:41:24 AM

if you are thinking of naming you child lisa please DO NOT. I'm 16 and i really hate it, its considered an old person name and its not inter'sting whatsoever. For a 45 year old its acceptable but not for someone born in the last 15 years. Also there are like no nicknames. Of course my friends love to call me Lasienaga (a girl from the catoon the Proud family) or Las for think about that.

3/27/2022 11:08:06 AM

I'm another of the 1000's of Lisa's from the 70's. Sharing my name with someone in class or at work is just part of my life. I'm fine with my name and if asked to pick a new name I would just stick with mine. It's easy to say and spell and no one has to ask me my name twice. My husband has a more uncomman name with different spellings and he always has to correct people and spell his name. I would find that annoying. The only thing I hated about growing up with my name was that even'though if seemed like half the world was named Lisa, it rarely ever'showed up on TV or in movies.

3/26/2022 7:41:06 AM

Lisa is simple to pronounce. I think it is wrong for a boy to have this name. It is a girl's name.

3/25/2022 10:32:06 PM

My daughter's name is Lisa Jessica, I looooovee this name. It really fits with my Lisa, she's beautiful, smart and has a pure heart.. love u my princess...muah

3/19/2022 10:04:12 AM

My name is spelled Licia but its pronounced Lisa. Iv always not liked Licia because it was uncommon and both my schools spelled it Lisa and no one knew. I am 16 this week and goin into sixth form and i loove the originality of my name now, so it'll be spelt that way. I'll ask people whether they'd prefer to pronounce it Lisa or lee-see-a because i like both.

3/11/2022 3:30:54 AM

I'm Lisa June. Any other Lisa June's out there? I have grown to love my name but there were so many other Lisa's in the 60's; my last name was Johnson and there were a ton of Lisa Johnsons.....

2/28/2022 4:48:18 PM

my name is lisa (obviously) i hate the name because It's so commend, boring and ungly and sometime people would pronounce it as Liza which i hate and people would say it all the time just to make me angry

2/13/2022 6:07:30 PM

My name is Lisa Renee. I am 25 years old. Born in 1997. All through school I was the only Lisa. i've always liked my name. It's short, everyone can say/spell it & It's uncommon for people my age. I also like that there Isn't a nickname. I wish I would have thought to name my daughter 'Lisa' one day. I think I fit the name Lisa though...dark brown hair, tall, lean, wears glasses, & smart/nerdy. Good name to call yourself! :-)

2/12/2022 4:36:36 AM

My name is Lisa Dawn. My mom told me I was named after Lisa on Green Acres (not sure why??), middle name after my aunt. People call me Lisa, Lis, people usually know how to pronounce my name. I work with at least 3 other Lisa's

2/11/2022 8:28:48 AM

my name is lisa and it is ok i used to hate it but i find it ok now i know about 2 other lisas it is not a very common name, my parents called me it because they said it is a pure name i hate it when people call me liza! grrrrr

2/4/2022 4:27:36 AM

My name is Lisa Ann (1979) and my life partners name is Lisa Anne (1975). My family calls her Lisa Lisa and I am just Lisa. I like the name, and have never met a mean Lisa yet. A Lisa is beautiful, strong minded, and persistent. Really listen'to the name. Say it a couple times. It Isn't plain. It'sounds sexy. I hope for a come back one day, but not an explosive comeback like back in the day.

2/1/2022 3:09:18 PM

My name is Lisa. There were only 2 Lisa's in my school. It's not a very common, I don't think. So It's good. I like it.

1/26/2022 8:10:48 AM

hey, my name is lisa and I absolutely adore it! It'sounds happy en sweet I think. I haven't met many people with the'same name but maybe it just Isn't that commom in the netherlands.

1/17/2022 4:34:48 AM

I'm Lisa Michelle too! Actually named after (to a degree the other Lisa M - tho my mother wouldn't allow the Marie bIt'so a compromise was made. I don't see it as old either. 3rd most popular girls name the year I was born apparently ('72) I just can't stand it being shortened to Lis, Lise or Leece or anything like that. Also hate being called Leeza or name is Lisa for christs sake!

1/1/2022 3:21:54 AM

name is Lisa and I was named after my moms best friend. I like it better when people call me lise becasue there are so many girls in my school named Lisa.

12/17/2021 10:04:12 PM


12/17/2021 7:19:30 PM

my name is lisa marie and i HATE IT!!! in elementary school there was a lisa in my class and as the years went on i had to hear nothing but lisa marie presley, lisa marie presley. now i am not saying there is nothing wrong with lisa marie presley but growing up and getting teased about having the'same name (lisa marie) is bad enough. my mom wanted to orignally name me desire and i wish she had.

12/15/2021 6:01:12 AM

I'm Lisa Kay and I really like my name. My friends often call me Lee, Lis ("lease"), Lisa-Lis, and Lisa-Lisa. Doesn't bother me a bit. Lisa was very popular when I was born, but I still haven't met many othe's named Lisa.

12/6/2021 12:35:24 AM

My aunt is named lisa... and she is prolly thee sweetest person on the face of this earth.... Also, my middle name is Li.... yes Li... this is because it is short for Lisa... but my middle name is not lisa... it just sounds to weird with my first name... Michelle Lisa???? Doesn't work...

12/4/2021 7:18:36 PM

I'm Lisa Evelyn and although I was bored with my first name as a kid, and there were always other Lisas in my classes, as an adult I really love my name! I get called Leece, Little Lisa, LisaLisa, Leecey, all kinds of fun stuff.

11/24/2021 8:36:00 AM

I'm Lisa Ther'se and I was born in 1973. I had no idea my name was so common in the decades I was in school. I don't remember there being a lot of us. i've always liked it.

11/21/2021 11:52:12 PM

Lisa is a wonderful name! It's feminine and pure. My late Dad named me Lisa Tracy. I adored him and the names he chose for me :)

11/18/2021 10:40:12 PM

My fiance's name is Lisa. A very short, yet pretty name. Some days she has said that the name irritates her, but I know she likes it. I really think that the name encapsulates all that'she is. Beautiful, caring, broody, intelligent and soulful.

10/31/2021 3:28:12 PM

I am Lisa Michelle, I am 41 and there were at least five other Lisa'a in elementary school, we would call each other by our last names

10/29/2021 1:15:00 AM

I was called Lisa after my auntie also, and i used to hate my name! I always thought it was far too short. I was born in 2004, a pretty common year to be called Lisa really.. However i am not a Lisa Marie, I'm a Lisa Mary :)

10/6/2021 4:15:00 AM

My daughters name is Lisa Jessica, and I just loveeee her name. Its a beautiful name and you don't hear it much. I also have 3 boys Isaiah, Landon and Ashton.

10/2/2021 9:39:54 AM

well, I'm actually in a 4th block class with a Haley. and she has her good days. she has a major crush on light skinned drum majors that graduate in may. but she's an overall cool person. she just needs to open up some more.

10/2/2021 1:25:48 AM

Natural parents named me Lisa Anne and adopted parents always called me that and sometimes Lee. They also dropped the "e" in the'spelling of Anne. In high school I was called Lee or Lise. Adopted parents hated that!! I would always hear them say, "We named you Lisa Ann". There are too many Lisa's (even a sister-in-law) and I am not a fan of the name. However, I do like LisaAnn and I also spell the two names together. Even'though I introduce myself as "LisaAnn" spell it that way, people will always say, hi,"Lisa". I hate it and always correct them and reply, is it too difficult to say "LisaAnn"?

9/19/2021 7:49:12 AM

Although there were always other Lisas in my classes at school, now I don't find too many. It is funny to hear that it is now considered by some to be an "old person's name." I am 41, and I guess that's pretty ancient when you are 16. I guess "Lisa" is to girls these days what "Elenor" was to me when I was 16! Yikes!

9/13/2021 1:45:36 AM

I'm Lisa Judith. i've never met anyone else with that combination. There were tons of other Lisa's when I was little because it was the most popular girl's name of that year. Now I don't meet so many. From other people I get Lisa-Lisa, Lis (prounounced lease), and, from a wannabe poet, Lisa Pizza.

9/5/2021 7:06:00 AM

When I was younger I wanted to change my name, but now i like it - apart from all the mispronunciations. Carmella, Pamela, Camille etc. When I introduce myself and people look like they're struggling, I say - "as in vanilla" then people get it

9/4/2021 1:49:12 AM

so this is my name as well. i like it when someone asks me how to spell like uh lisa. i dont have much nicknames. lise,lisalynn. but thats my bf calling me that. im trying to think of something different... i like li.. OR sorry but lisa is such a blah name. plus its hard to get a nickname from this ther's only 4 letters... :(

9/3/2021 11:10:48 AM

I have always found any woman with the name Lisa was bad luck for me. usually vicious and rude. I'm not talking as a girl friend, I'm talking just as a person in a store or a coworker or classmate back in school, its a nasty name and I avoid it like Jens, Melissa and Tessa. show me any of those names and I'm out of there.

8/27/2021 9:54:18 AM

I was born in 1983 in WI. I was always know as 'Lisa W' because there were several girls by the'same name. I couldn't even go by 'Lisa Ann' because at least three heads would turn. I have never liked my name because of how common it was and I always considered it a good name for a cow.

8/26/2021 12:57:54 AM

My name is Lisa and I love my name. I know three other people with the name Lisa. They always pronounce it correct except they think its somethimes spelled leeza or liza. The correct pronounce is like this lee sah. All the other Lisa's that I know seem to be nice..I guess anyone name Lisa has a great personality and is nice.

7/29/2021 5:55:48 AM

I never thought about it much. Men always seem to find this name'sexy. I had a guy tell me "I never met a bad looking Lisa in my life." And he wasn't saying it in a Eddie Haskel kind of way either.

7/17/2021 10:16:48 AM

my name is Lisa and i kinda like it at times but i kinda hate it too. sometimes i like that it is short and people know how to spell it, but at times i wish it was longer'so i could have a nickname other then "Lis" i guess no one ever pronounces it wrong, and where i live it isnt so common, so maybe its not that bad. nice to know some people like it! :D
