Alyssa

rational
ORIGIN: Greek
POPULARITY: 282
Alyssa is a flower name, derived from alyssum, that means “rational.” Alyssa recently fell out of the top 100 baby names for girls in 2011, but it was a top 50 name from 1997 to 2005. There’s a symmetry at work in Alyssa, with two As on each end and two Ss that look like waves in the middle. It’s also anchored by a Y, which is very trendy. And can we just say that symmetrical A names are on the ascent right now, from Ava to Ada to Ana?
