Alise Origin and Meaning

The name Alise is a girl's name .

About 60 girls were named Alise in the US last year, making it an uncommon but not truly rare name. While it's pretty and intriguing as a spin on the very popular Alice, it's pronounced more like Elise or -- in Latvian -- Elisa, and so may prove more confusing than it's worth. If you want to name your daughter Alice, name her Alice, and if you want to name her Elise, name her Elise. Choosing Alise in many ways gives you the worst of all worlds.

I'm sure people have also used it to make it a "unique" spelling of Elise.

Nameberry is so down on my name! I've lived with it for 33 years and I'd say it's a pretty amazing name. It's not the same as Elise, anyway. Some people pronounce Elise "EE-LEESE". My name is "UH-LEESE".

No, it pronounced in Latvian AH-LIS-E (European "e", not american) !! Its a girls name. How come you call it the "worst variation"? English speakers are the ones with twisted letter pronunciation and you call us weird??

This is my middle name. It's a variant of Alice and means "Noble," which was my grandfather's name. I'm thinking of passing it on to a little girl of my own. :)
