Malibu: Malibu is Beverly Hills on a beach. A place built on money, power, and prestige. So do you think you can handle Malibu?

The Residents: The teenage residents of Malibu are blessed with great looks, power, and huge trust funds. Well, most of them anyway. Some are outsiders brought to this elite town because of unusual circumstances. These select few rarely fit in. To fit in you need to have the hottest new luxury vehicle, the coolest clothes, and go to the best parties. Your appearance and your repuation is very important. So is your family name. Most parents let their kids do whatever they want as long as they don't tarnish the family name. And these kids take full advantage of their freedom.

1. Why have you decided to join the Ali(y)ssa community? I randomly saw it while looking for degrassi communities.

2. What is your name? Allisa but I go by Lissa now.

3. How/From whom did you get your name? My mom say the name in a baby name book.

4. Do you like your name? Kind of. I like the uniqueness in it but it just bothers me with other people.

5. What do you like or dislike about the fact that no one can spell it or pronounce it? I dislike it when everyone never pronounces my name right or spells it right. It got so bad at one time that a teacher called me "Melissa" and I corrected and she was annoyed and almost told me to leave. Why she was that pissed, I don't know.

6. What are your nicknames? Lis, Lissa, Weez, Weasel

7. How many people named Ali(y)ssa do you know? In second grade there were two other girls with the same name in my class but theirs were spelled Alyssa.

8. Who is your favourite famous Ali(y)ssa? I only know Alyssa Milano. When I was in middle school I tried to win this pepsi contest where you would have a shopping spree with her. I thought it would've been cool to hang out with someone famous who has the same name as me.

9. If you could have chosen your name, what would you have picked? Lissa or Kayla

10. Do you have any ideas for this community? No.

11. Anything else you'd like to say? I do have one thing to say. Is there anyone who spells their name the same way as me? Honestly, I feel like the only one. Which is kind of neat I guess.

1. Why have you decided to join the Ali(y)ssa community? I am sick and was scrolling through people's interests. I noticed that my boyfriend had me listed under his and there was a link thing. Then I found this.
2. What is your name? Alyssa
3.How/From whom did you get your name? My mom liked Carissa or Clarissa or Sarissa and my dated hated all of them. He found "Alyssa" (maybe someone he knew knew someone with the name) and they agreed. Or wait, his parents would have named him "Alyssa" had he been a girl. So that must be where he got it. But despite what some namebooks say it is NOT a version of Alice, and thus not Alicia, either. It is Greek. (I am not sure if it is related to Alisa/Alysa or not. But for some reason I get annoyed when I see it is a derivative of the English Alice.)
4. Do you like your name? Yeah. I hated it when I was little. I thought about how there were no nicknames for it (my dad calls me Al or Assyla sometimes but otherwise only little kids have called me "Issa" or something). Sometimes people tryied Alyss but I just don't really like that at all. And so I wanted to be Jessica or something. One of those names where I could have a friend with my name. I think I liked Rebecca, too.
But now I love my name, because it is unique, yet it is not too weird (like Xara or something...my friend wants to name her kid that). I like this spelling best, too.
5. What do you like or dislike about it? See above. And I dislike that no one can pronounce it. Although now that it's more popular (since I was 10 years old maybe, kids are poppin' up all over with the name), more people get it correct sooner.
6. What are your nicknames? Also above, but just my dad pretty much has nicknames for me that he uses rarely (Al & Assyla). and sometimes little kids (Yssa, Yssie,Lyssie) when they can't say my name very well. In highschool on the tennis team I got used to Alyss occassionally, but because I never really had nicknames before, I don't like nicknames that are at all related to my name. It's Alyssa, take it or leave it.
7. How many people named Ali(y)ssa do you know? I met a girl at summer camp once. And then I went to highschool with someone who spelled it Elissa, so that only half-counted. We weren't really friends though after a couple months and it was weird to have to turn my head when I heard my name and realize they wanted someone else. I wasn't used to that. (Although one teacher always emphasized "eh-lissa" v. "uh-lyssa" so we knew who he meant.)
8. Who is your favourite famous Ali(y)ssa? Maybe I liked Alyssa Milano when I was younger, on Who's the Boss? and I did watch Charmed briefly in highschool. But I don't really have a preference these days.
9.If you could have chosen your name, what would you have picked? Alyssa is fine with me, now that I have learned to love it. It was worth all the mispronounciations and misspellings.
10. Do you have any ideas for this community? ???
11.Anything else you'd like to say? ???

2. What is your name? Alissa Marie

4. Do you like your name? I love my name and I'm glad I have it.
5. What do you like or dislike about it? I hate the fact that people can not say or spell it, but I love the way it looks, the way it sounds and the fact that it's so exciting to find others w/ my name, instead of an everyday occurence.
6. What are your nicknames? Lissa, Lissy, Lis, Liss, Aliss & Rocky ;)
7. How many people named Ali(y)ssa do you know? No one in person... only the ladies in here!

10. Do you have any ideas for this community? Although it's a great community idea, it's hard to do a lot... I guess just having it is great... although I did a search on imdb.com for Alissa/Alyssa and there are a ton of actresses w/ our names! Maybe we could occasional do a feature on a *famous* namesake. At least it would be cool to see girls w/ our names getting famous. :)
11. Anything else you'd like to say? There is a French movie named Alissa! Isn't that awesome?

"Let us be grateful for the fools. But for them the rest of us could not succeed."



I stumbled upon that quote by Mark Twain while doing a research project on authors. I thought was funny, and extremely true. I mean, how could anybody succeed in anything if they weren't more talanted in that area than another?

[And as a side note, it got me thinking very logically, and I've been taking things very literally for the past few days because of this quote... Thank you, Mark Twaine. >.<]

Just thought I'd share it with you all. :)

1. Why have you decided to join the Ali(y)ssa community? Because our name totally owns. And thus a community based on said name must also own.
2. What is your name? Alyssa. But a few (very few) people call me by my middle name, Jade.
3. How/From whom did you get your name? It was between Lauren, Keely, and Alyssa, and when I was born, my parents agreed that I looked much more like an Alyssa (I do). And for the record, Alyssa Milano had nothing to do with it.
4. Do you like your name? Loooove it. So. Freaking. Much. It rocks.
5. What do you like or dislike about it? It's the hardest name for dumb people to pronounce. For an entire semester, my Health teacher called me Alisha (I didn't answer, of course, and she wondered why), my old Engish would sometimes call me Alison, and at the beginning of this year, I was known by my Physics teacher as Aleesa.
6. What are your nicknames? Lyssa, Lyss, Alyss, Lysh, Alysh... probably more.
7. How many people named Ali(y)ssa do you know? I know there are about four at my school.
8. Who is your favourite famous Ali(y)ssa? Don't know of any other than Milano, and I'm not particularly fond of her.
9. If you could have chosen your name, what would you have picked? There are only two names I like as much and think fit me as well as Alyssa: Ruby and Zoe. So, of course, those will be names of my children.
10. Do you have any ideas for this community? Hmmmmmm. None right now.
11. Anything else you'd like to say? This community is cool.

There's a flame that leads our souls astray
No one's safe from it's tender touch of pain
And every day it's looking for new slaves
To celebrate the beauty of the grave

We are like the living dead
Sacrificing all we have
For a frozen heart and soul on fire
We are like the living dead
Craving for deliverance
With a frozen heart and soul on fire

And again we're falling for disgrace
And the hate will shelter us from the rain
We are enslaved by the sacred hearts of shame
And gently raped by the light of day

We are like the living dead
Sacrificing all we have
For a frozen heart and soul on fire
We are like the living dead
Craving for deliverance
We're the frozen heart and soul on fire

The distance that I defied is there
No matter all the games we played
And it will follow us to death

We are like the living dead
Sacrificing all we have
For a frozen heart and soul on fire
We are like the living dead
Craving for deliverance
We're the frozen heart and soul on fire

We're the soul on, soul on, soul on fire
Soul on fire
Soul on fire


I decided not to put it under a cut...*shrug* figured no one would mind reading some good lyrics.

Alot of people in this community say their parents got the name Alyssa from Alyssa Milano in Who's the Boss. Well, I wonder where Alyssa's parents got her name from? The name Alyssa in the USA doesn't really get much older than Alyssa Milano, that I have experienced. Any ideas? Or anyone know?
