Coolest name meaning... maybe ever?? And an interesting play to go with it, not just made up, about a billion nicknames, and the spelling actually makes sense? Love it.

Floris Says:


Cheers :) I actually really like some of these nn... But the full name. Well, not something I personally would chose for a 1rst name.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


Ooh, but there are lots of nicknames! That's okay. :)

Floris Says:


Lyssie, Lyss, Sisi (like the empress), Sissie, Sissa, Tattie, Issy, Lyssa... I'm sure there are more. That's just what it made me think of :) I don't think there is one uber propular nn for it, sorry, should have worded that better.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


What nickname does it have?

Floris Says:


I agree, but it wouldn't be too bad as a 2nd name... And the nn is cute imo.

RoddyThlayli Says:


This is one of those names that works awesome on a character but wouldn't work too well in real life.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


It's a bit of a tongue twister. Children might have a hard time saying Lysistrata. Also, I had to keep looking back to see how it was spelled.
