This is my prefered nickname to be called, my name is Melissa. Great nickname but I wouldn't use it as a name, mostly because people often get it wrong and say Lisa. :( Sad because I really don't like that name.

Some people have used this as my nickname (my name is Alyssa). I love it but, perhaps because of how it is used in relation to my name, it seems too nick-namey to be a stand alone name.

Hmm... I'm just gonna forget about that association. I love Lyssa too much.

In Greek mythology, Lyssa was the spirit of mad rage, frenzy, and rabies in animals. Which is awful because I love this name.
