What Elisa`s say about their name
The best thing about the name Elisa: I am 53 yeas old, and I too, was the only one in my schools.
The worst thing about the name: I'll agree with the mispronounciations. People tend to be lazy and say the first thing that comes to their heads, like Elsie, which is a cow's name and not even close.
If my name wasn`t Elisa....: I like the name Miranda.
Extra information: I love my name, but am truly surprised when someone says it correctly without help. It's E-Lee-sa, the correct pronunciation.
The best thing about the name Elisa: It is easy to spell :)
The worst thing about the name: My name is pronounced like the common name Alyssa, but I was born before that was popular. Growing up it was mostly people spelling my name with a Z that bothered me. Now it is being called Elysa with the 'e' sound. The spelling I am not bothered by now. I just want people to say it as it was intended.
If my name wasn`t Elisa....: My mothers name if I was a boy was Whitney.... I swear she was like the hipster of her time.
Extra information: It's a great name because it is not tooo common, even though it is gaining in popularity. I almost always know when people are talking to me.
The best thing about the name Elisa: no one really has that name and it looks and sounds pretty. :)also i've only heard 2 people with my name so it feels kinda weird since female's don't really have that name.
