Personal experiences with the name Kerisa: | Edit

Kerisa is a variant used by my parents. They wanted a name that went with my 7 brothers names, but also wanted it to be more girly, seeing as how i am the only girl. They wanted it to start with a K but also wanted the second letter to be an 'e' like the rest of my siblings ( Kelby, Keegan, Kenneth, Kendall, Kenyon, Kellan, Keyson), and they liked the sound of Karisa, so they just replaces the first 'a' for the 'e'. My whole name is Kerisa Christiana Rowan Alicia.
