- Personal experiences with the name Morissa
I've never met another MORISSA in person, but I was surprised to find nearly 100 people on Facebook with the name.
It's unique for sure. No one ever gets my name right. I get Marissa, Melissa, Monica and Morgan! It's frustrating. And when I got married, I got a complicated last name too so my name is impossible for anyone to spell.
