Hi ladies. How would you pronounce name Allysa? Thank you x

TaffetaMuttonfudge Thu 10-Mar-16 22:27:04

I'd think A-lissa. Love this name.

I'd pronounce it like this www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVaDWmhAQeg

RudeElf Thu 10-Mar-16 22:27:55

Ah-lissa.

Like Alisa (short i).

SmallBee Thu 10-Mar-16 22:29:21

I don't know how it is supposed to be said but I'd say Ah-lis-sah? Or Ally-sah?

I thought it's ah-lissa, but than someone suggested a-ly-sa so got a bit confused.

If you want it pronounced Alissa then it should be spelled Alyssa not Alysa.

Definitely liss not lice grin

Though dd had a friend called Allysia who pronounced it Alecia (A-leesh-ia) which was very confusing as there was also an Alicia and an Elyssia in the class.

Oh, I missed that. Either way it should definitely have two s's.

I'd pronounce Allysa ah-lee-sa. Alyssa would be ah-liss-a.

ah-liss-ah - although i have never seen it spelt like that, doesn't look right.

Sofiria Fri 11-Mar-16 13:45:41

A-lye-sa. For the liss sound in the middle you need two s's.

Ally-sah
