• Lisa is not a Chinese name and therefore it can be called purely on the basis of the sound of the syllables. Lisa can then be called Li Sa and the closest words in the Hanyu pinyu system of Romanization will be Lì shā (Li in the 4th tone and sha in the 1st tone). The 1st tone is a high-level tone represented by a level tone mark (-) and 4th tone is a high-falling tone represented by an falling tone mark (Ë‹). The Chinese characters not symbols for Lisa could then be 丽莎 with the character 丽 meaning beautiful, magnificent or elegant and the 莎 meaning kind of sedge grass, used anciently for raincoats.
