Meaning:Of Paris
Parissa is a feminine name that’s commonly found in Greece. It’s a variant form of Paris, the Greek hero who risked everything for the love of Helen of Sparta, in turn sparking the Trojan War. The ancient Luwian language is credited with its origins, as Pari-zitis was the name of a scribe among the Hittite people, but its meaning is unknown. Naming your little one Parissa, then, gives them a wonderful opportunity to carve out their own destinies and make the name their own.
