    AH-LEE-SA and that is the correct pronunciation.

    I would say it the first way. And either way, I just don't like the sound of it. Just the sound, is old fashioned. From the Victorian era.

    I don’t like it because people will pronounce it differently(ah-LEE-sah and ah-LISS-uh) therefore leaving the bearer of the name a lifetime of having to correct peoples pronunciation of their name

    Al-EE-sah.  Ah-liss-a sounds awkward. Actually any form, even mine, sounds awkward. It seems like a half-complete name, not fully formed.

    It wants to be Alison, maybe?

    A-lees-uh. It's okay. I prefer Alyssa (pronouced a-liss-uh).

    I love Ah-liss-a but would 100% spell it Alyssa or Alissa. I really don't like Ah-lees-a. I find it annoying sounding and pretentious.

    I would pronounce it ah-lees-a; I prefer the spelling Elisa and it was one of my favorite names until I had an apartment manager with the name who is not the greatest person and has just about ruined it for me.

    All-lisa Aye-lisa. I personally think AlTuna is prettier.
