The name Lisa is a boy's name .
Lisa was so popular for girls in the late sixties and early seventies that according to government statistics some parents chose it for their sons, too. Either that or there were some serious mixups in the records bureau.

I wouldn't name a guy this.
Congratulations toindiefendi2Marlz81paulapuddephattldougieMyanoverEvaThyssenfor contributing to the gendered attitudes that keep men from ever doing or demonstrating as anything even remotely 'effeminate'. You are the women (and men, but most people on this site are women) who will raise or are raising bullies.
Lisa has been used for boys??? Aw, well - guess I was wrong to say that all the parents calling their daughters James and Michael wouldn't give their sons super feminine names. Poor lads, though...!!!
I think it is cute for a girl, but for a boy....... it is not common and it just doesn't feel right to me
I may have said eff no to this below but I see stats say that more boys are named Elizah than girls... well gosh, stranger things have happened.
Nameberry can be very weird sometimes.
They have a girl's page for Howard. I don't think Lisa having a boy page is that far out.
Why is Lisa classified as an unisex name? You should delete this page. Lisa is a girl's name.
I'm very liberal but.........eff no. Every name can't be for both genders. Some names are strictly for girls and some names are strictly for boys. This isn't neutral.
Lisa for a boy? Surely no one would name their son this!! Smh
What? I feel bad for guys with this name.
