  6. Marissa Desiree says:

    Growing up my friends and family called me:
    Riss
    Rissa
    Rissy
    Miss Arissa
    Maris

    Nowadays when I hear Riss or Rissa it just makes me feel like a little kid cause my family were the only ones to call me that. I don’t use nicknames as an adult.
    Always wish I had better nicknames. You know how Melissa can go by Mel… Mar just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

    I still like my name though, just none of the nicknames
