What do you think of Marissa as a girl's name? It's listed on Mumsnet's Baby Name Finder.

I prefer the usual spelling, Marisa (the doubling of the "s" makes me think of harissa paste).

Prefer Melissa

Rhubarbgarden Fri 19-Nov-10 22:42:34

Love it.

But I also prefer it with a single s.

I think it's pretty and a bit unusual without being to unusual, i had it on my list smile

Marissa cooper.

It's ok, bit 80s. Not keen. Prefer Marianne or Maribel. But I guess as they are more contemporary, then that would make Marissa more unusual (if you care).

MelinaM - Melina is on my baby name list for possible DC3

At school with one in 70s (same spelling) - I like it.

I like it. I like all the -issa names.

Nerissa is an alternative.

I also instantly thought of harissa paste.

Neither love nor hate it really.

I like it. Melissa is on my short list but I admit I also like Marisa.
