Like it the more I say it, what's your thoughts?

It sounds like a brand of curling tongs

austenozzy Sat 25-Feb-17 22:38:09

Sounds like an accounting software package! Is it a real name or a made up one?

In the words of steve Wright
Made up name.

Sweets101 Sat 25-Feb-17 22:40:03

Sounds like a very attractive Lisa

fluentinsarcasm Sat 25-Feb-17 22:43:26

Well I came across it whilst looking at Elizabethan names, so not made up.

WhisperedLoudest Sat 25-Feb-17 22:45:16

It sounds made up.

How about Cordelia or Larissa?

Both lovely names smile

The helpful robot in my phone is Cortana. She just told me that Corlissa is her cousin, but they don't get on. Something about them being incompatible...

I'm afraid it does sound made up, no matter how genuine it actually is. Nobody will know how to spell it when they hear it spoken. Lots of people will mispronounce it when they see it written down. Is that really what you want for your daughter? She's the one who'll have to go through life with it.

Absolutely awful.

fluentinsarcasm Sat 25-Feb-17 22:53:46

i'm interested in old names, hadn't heard it before so thought I'd share it. Not planning on giving it to any daughters!

fluentinsarcasm Sat 25-Feb-17 23:20:47

That killed that then! grin

BeBeatrix Sat 25-Feb-17 23:25:13

I think it's rather beautiful!

I'd never heard it before, and I'll admit that I'm swayed by the fact that it's a very old name rather than a made up one...

What Aww said
At first glimpse I thought the thread was about the hair straighteners

Another one who immediately thought curling tongs (why? Is there actually a brand called this?)

The sounds themselves are a bit overly fussy and frilly. It sounds very made-up to me even though you say it isn't (but check your source - internet naming websites are often wildly inaccurate). Similar but a bit more concise is the name Cora.

mathanxiety Sun 26-Feb-17 08:08:29

Cor missus, did you say?

Bubblysqueak Sun 26-Feb-17 08:14:20

I thought it was a typo and you were supposed to write Clarissa. blush

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 26-Feb-17 09:28:02

How about Carissa or Cordelia ?

Blossomdeary Sun 26-Feb-17 09:29:38

Oh - definitely no - it is horrid!

It sounds like some grim medical condition!

fluentinsarcasm Sun 26-Feb-17 09:46:08

Maybe the tongs thing is because of Babyliss

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 26-Feb-17 11:54:47

Lissa is nice OP.

Usernamewithnodigits Sun 26-Feb-17 13:33:57


MrsMeeseeks Sun 26-Feb-17 15:01:00

All names are made up.

Corlissa is dreadful!

reuset Sun 26-Feb-17 18:25:40

Cor, Lissa, it's warm in here grin

I've heard of Corliss, but not with the 'a' ending. They both sound slightly like cordless. It sounds like one of those romantic sounding mish mash names, like Corisande or Clarimunda, but I don't think it is.

WhenLoveAndCakeCollide Sun 26-Feb-17 18:50:37

I have a friend named Corliss, I think the meaning is along the lines of 'care free, spirited', and I love the name (and meaning).

Never heard of Corlissa, but clearly just a variant of Corliss.

I'd much rather see a Corliss or Corlissa, then I would another Madison or Lexi.
