Comments and insights on the name Karrisa: | Edit

I think this is a pretty name.

My parents named me Karrisa in 1987. When they were trying to Baptize me, they were told that the "proper" Catholic spelling was "Carrisa". My parents obviously ignored them and kept the "K". I have NEVER in 32 years met someone with the same spelling of my name. Except on Facebook. I found a girl with the same spelling AND the same last name as me! It is unique and I absolutely love it!

Personal experiences with the name Karrisa: | Edit

I often get called the wrong name. Sometimes I am "Klarrisa". Often it's Ka-REE-sa.

Nicknames for Karrisa: | Edit

Most people call me Rissa.
The closest call me Riss.
My Nana & parents call me Rissa-Roo and Rissa-Bum. Yes, I am 32 years old and my mom will still sometimes call me Rissa-bum or "Bum" for short. Embarrassing. I know.

My son's older sister (Dad's daughter from a previous relationship) is "Carissa". When she was little they called her "Rissy".
