    I really like this name. One of my best friends growing up was named Marissa. I don't think of it as dated at all. I'm surprised it made it to 53 because I don't know very many people with this name.

    I find all of the -issa names to be dated. Marissa, Melissa, Alyssa, Clarissa... all had a surge of popularity in the 80s. They are nice names, but do come off as dated to me.

    Thanks, ladies! I've only ever known one Marissa (went to high school with her) so I wasn't sure if it was actually seen as dated or not! I love that it's from Mary and Marissa has the potential to grow on me but I'm not sure if I'd ever love it.

    I have a thing for 80's endings. I like both Marissa and Vanessa.
