I prefer Lucy but only because the only Marissa I ever met was completely batshit loopy.

My dd is lucy and a friend called marissa. Friend is Italian and first time i heard the name. I really like it.

For some reason her dh calls her mareeesa but he is a twonk.

I like both, lucy is more traditional (in the uk) marissa is unusual without being pretentious or "out there"

Id have to toss a coin grin

Fwiw we couldn't decide between lucy or sofia but when dd arrived we waited a week and then went for the name she suited.

Lucy only because I went to school with a Marissa she was a hardfaced cowbag , Lucy is nice

I like both, but I do prefer Lucy.

I also love Lucia. But Lucy is really lovely imo.

Echoing PPs, the only Marissa I knew was awful.

Another vote for Lucy

QuietNinjaTardis Wed 05-Apr-17 21:41:53

My cousin is Marisa pronounced mareesa who is a bit weird and I know one Lucy who is a bullshitter. So Marissa over Lucy for me. But pick something else entirely is my advice 👍🏼

Lucy, not only is it such a pretty name, but every Lucy I know is just lovely.
The one Marissa I know is quite hard faced.

Love Lucy

The Lucy I went to school with was truly horrible and I used to work with a stuck up pretentious cow called Lucy but the one I work with now is lovely. Marissa gets my vote. Lovely and more unusual

Lucy, but spelt Lucie

CakeRattleandRoll Thu 06-Apr-17 00:47:01

Love Marissa.

CakeRattleandRoll Thu 06-Apr-17 00:47:55

Or how about combining them - Larissa?

reuset Thu 06-Apr-17 01:13:05

Lucy. Marissa is ok. Larissa nice too, as suggested.

Though I do like Mari as a shortening. Hmm
