Comments and insights on the name Charisa
Personal experiences with the name Charisa

My name is Charisa and I love it. It's a graceful, beautiful, and unique name. Pronounced Kuh-Rissa. I have met only a couple other "Carissa"s before, and no one with my spelling. It stands out in a good way, although it is commonly mispronounced (especially with the Ch sound like "Church" or "Change" instead of a hard Ch like "Character"). This name would be good for parents wanting their daughter to have a name with flair and grace.
