  10. Alyssa says:

    My name is Alyssa Jessica (middle name Jessica) and it’s a lot of S’s but it kind of flows nicely. I’ve always been called Lyss. It’s so much easier and quicker to say or explain the pronunciation of Alyssa and I almost hate being called Alyssa because I like Lyss better. Obviously some people extend it to Lyssie or Lyssa which i like also. :)
