I'd like something pretty and may be a bit unusual. Not Chloe or Rose, they're already in the family. What would be nice?

I love Cecilia particularly as our surname begins with a C but DH has vetoed sad

I have a Marissa Emily - not an unusual middle name but I think it goes well!

I think it is a very pretty name. Though the usual spelling is Marissa. How would you pronounce it with just one s?

I think a single syllable name would go well with it because it becomes too long winded otherwise.

Alessandra
Amelie
Faye
Gabrielle
Hope
Leigh
Marguerite
Renee

I prefer the spelling Marisa, which is perfectly correct.

Bunbaker - Marisa is the American spelling and you say it MAA-ris-sa; Marisa is Spanish/Portuguese and as you'd expect from a Latin name you put the stress on the second syllable - Ma-REE-sa
But she gets get called Marissa a lot too!

I did mean a sibling name Melina, but thank you!

Emily is very cute too, I sort of forget about those lovely trad English names.

Thanks for that kenobi I didn't know.

Glad you understood me - I meant to write Marissa/Marisa, not Marisa/Marisa! wink

For some reason as soon as I read your question I thought Louise! Seems to go quite well and is less widely used these days!

Elouise would be even better.
