Having this name is definitely a conversation starter. My name was also chosen because of Anissa Jones--my mom thought it was pretty. However, I prefer the i to be pronounced as a short e.
Its Great!

Well I was named after a clerk lady at Dillard's that my father liked the name. He asked the clerk how to prounounce it. I don't prounouce it like others. I prounounce as Anissia, but i spell it Anissa which is to me the same thing. I'm 20 yrs old and I have thought i was the only one with that name, but i am finding out that more people are being named that! I love my name!!

some people ask me how do you say or name or what does it meen...some people are shocked and suprise and what a nice name.......but the funny thing is when people see it on paper how will they say your name....the correct way to say it is with the sound of an "E" in Anessa and a lot of people from Somalia have that name but they spell it with one "S" saying Anisa.......In arabic Anissa mean friendly....or good companion......its rare to see that name ....but it is a great name..i would say.....

I wonder what people think of the name 'Nissa'
it's the name of one of Dr Who female companians from the 70's. I guess you could spell it 'Nisa' as well.

I love my name, and yes it is pronounced wit an e instead of an a. I love the fact that i have such a speacial name that no one i know has. But pften times it gets frustrating when people can not pronounce my name right. But i guess thats the cost og having such an unique name.

Wow! Can't not believe there are so many other Anissa's out there. I actually just met a girl today with the same name & pronounced it the same but spelled it Aneesah. It's nice not having a name like everyone else.

Anissa is my daughter's name and I love it! Even though its not a hard name to pronounce or spell she is the ONLY one in her school with that name and I love that! UH-NEE-SAH! I love it!!!

I'm 28 and I love my name! My parents had a teacher in high school that had a daughter with my name and liked it so much they decided to name me that. Only my name is pronounced with a short 'i' (UH-NIS-SAH) like you hear in Melissa. Most people try to pronounce it UH-NEE-SAH, which is wrong in my case. The girl a year ahead of me in school did pronounce it with the 'e' sound.

My mother likes my name but didn't like it with two s's so I only have one. Most people do spell my name Anissa though. It's pronounced UH-NIS-SAH but like many others people pronouce it UH-NEE-SAH. Its very strange but nice to hear people say their name is the same as mine since it is such a rare name.
