Karyssa is a modern girl’s name, likely created by US parents, inspired by the Greek Charissa. Derived from the name Charis, this appellation means “grace” and “kindness” and flaunts a mythological background. Charis is the name of one of the Charites (“Graces,”) goddesses of creativity, charm, beauty, and nature. In the 16th century, English poet Edmund Spenser popularized Charissa with his epic masterpiece The Faerie Queene, published in 1590. Karyssa, with its trendy “k” and “y” spelling, is a contemporary name based on centuries of history. Whether a poetry lover or a Greek mythology enthusiast, Karyssa is a refined choice for your little cherub.
