    Clarissa definitely. Rolls of the tongue a lot easier. Remember you’re going to have to say this name over and over and over again lol

    Sometimes people put together words not understanding that they have meaning attached to them.

    When something ends with  i+sa (shua) - it means IS SAVIOR, IS SALVATION

    Elisa

    Yahshua

    These are names which make sense. Elisa means God is Savior. Yahshua means Yah Saves

    Even Melekshua/Melchishua (King Saves, King is Savior), Abishua/Avishua (Father is Savior)
