I love this name - I pronounce it as if it has a z (like I pronounce Louise) but I think it's much prettier than Lizette - Lisette was my name in high school French class and I'd use it as a middle name to honour relatives Isabella and Betty

AnonyMom Says:


I pronounce Lizette and Lisette differently; the former like Liz with a hard Z, and the latter with an S sound like in bliss/miss. My sister is Lisette pronounced with the S. I think is a lovely name!
