This is my aunt's nickname; she's Melissa formally. Honestly, no one says anything about it, it's not as bad as the other commenters are making it out to be. I'd still recommend Melissa as a real name, but again, it's not THAT bad.

I don't think this is bad name. Nameberrys got it all wrong, it's a beautiful name. Just go by Ms Missy. Problem solved.
