    Default How do you feel about the name Larissa for a baby girl?

    Would really love to hear some honest thoughts about this name- not very common, so I am wondering how it is perceived. Thanks

    I've worked in childcare and looked after a couple of girls with the name Larissa. I see it as a normal name, not odd etc

    When I was a kid I loved that name. I watched a school play & the female leads name was Larissa

    She was gorgeous & miss popularity, everything I wasn't so I decided I'd call my daughter that lol

    I didn't but I still love the name x

    It's not that uncommon is it? I've met a fair few woman in that 20-30 age bracket called Larissa.

    I'm pretty indifferent to it. Don't love it. Don't hate it.
