I prefer Alissa, it looks softer and cleaner to me, lol. Both are okay though.

I would pronounce them both the same.
but I much prefer the spelling of Alyssa!
(Also,I disagree with the first comment,for ah-lee-suh I would go with the spelling Alisa)

I’d pronounced them both Ah-liss-ah but I’ve heard people say it Ah-lee-sah by accident a couple times. My favorite spelling is Allissa because no one ever pronouces that spelling wrong.

Uh. my name IS Alissa, and it IS pronounced A LEE SAH as the first post says. If you research the origin it actually comes from Hebrew and IS A LEE SAH, however recently i’ve noticed all the name sites have changed it to germanic origins and are telling you to pronounce it a liss ah which is alYssa. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME. My best friends name since i was 6 months old is AlYssa (liss) and I am Alissa, (lee).

My 8 month old is Alyssa and we pronounce it Ah-liss-ah but very often people call her ah-lee-sa( even the priest at her baptism until I quietly corrected him). and we get ah lisha too which I didnt understand why until the last post.

My name is spelled Alyssa and it’s pronounced Uh-lee-suh. Everyone in America pronounces it Uh-liss-Uh, but in other countries they pronouce it correctly. I wish it was spelled Allysa.

My name is Alissa and it is a soft vowel followed by two consonants. Just like Melissa but with an A instead. One "s" makes it a hard vowel.
