My cousin has asked me to put this name to the MN test. I told her to join herself but she's nervous! So what do you think?

It's not awful but it does feel a bit old-fashioned to me.

Freyanna Fri 16-Jun-17 02:41:31

I like that name.

I love the name Alyssa, it's very pretty.
Lyssi for short.😀

It's a bit 80s American. It is quite pretty though.

According to my diary, this was the name I gave my imaginary friend in 1985 so Sophronia is probably right.

It's pretty. The only one I know is an American teenager.

I like it, very pretty, quite unusual yet uncomplicated.

Very nice, didn't know it was apparently dated or American! I know one with sister Emilia.

Really love it!

I think it's pretty. It's also fairly unusual these days, which is nice.

I love it and it's one of my choices (first time pregnant 32wks with a girl) but DP doesn't like it sad

Pretty name.

There is of course Alyssa Edwards of Drag Race fame who is a bit ridiculous, but that alone probably shouldn't put you off.

Thank you. She's going with it!
