2. What is your name? Alissa Marie
3. How/From whom did you get your name? I have no idea... my mom has a thing for rare names...
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!
8. Who is your favourite famous Ali(y)ssa? Isn't Ms. Milano the only famous Alyssa?
9. If you could have chosen your name, what would you have picked? Well, I like my name but if I have to choose another one, I'd pick something more Italian sounding. My entire family is from there... I am first generation American... I've always liked Gianna, Valentina... and I've always liked Apollonia, but that could be b/c I'm obsessed w/ The Godfather... ;)
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?
