Personal experiences with the name Alisa: | Edit

Ailsa and Alisa are anagrams of each other; both contain the same letters.

I named my daughter Alisa Ann in the 70's. Paul Anka remade the song Monalisa back then and I loved the song. Mon means my in French and I loved the name Lisa but wanted it to match with my mother's middle name Ann. So I really thought back then that I alone had made up the name Alisa, and now various spellings of the name are very popular. She has always loved the fact that Alisa means "noble" and loves her grandma's middle name. We both think it's ironic that a popular name now is her name backwards, annalisa. Both names are beautiful. I call her "Lise" most of the time.

My cousin's name is Alisa. It's a really pretty name!!
