Marissa or Elissa would be very nice.

I really like Lyssa, but feel that it makes a better nick name. I think that if she grows up to become a major business person or someone with a lot of authority, it would be hard for "Lyssa" to be taken seriously. Of the three, I think Merissa could be taken most seriously.

the NAME has NOTHING to do with how seriously people take you! it’s the ATTITUDE!

I totally agree that it’s the attitude that can make or break a successful person, but in a society where first impressions are so important, I’m just thinking if someone’s first impression is from a piece of paper, stronger names are better.

instead of Clarissa, I like Carissa. Carissa Lynn is great.
