Alisa is a girl’s name of Hebrew origin, meaning “great happiness” and “joy.” A variant of the name Alice, Alisa offers an additional syllable that smoothly rolls off the tongue. A beloved name worldwide, this title also has roots in German, linked to the names Alice and Adalheidis, meaning "Nobleness." With so many cultures taking ownership, including Russian and Dutch, this name has some lovely variants, too! A couple of them are Elisa and Alyssa, so there are plenty of spelling options to choose from while still maintaining such a lovely meaning.
