Baby Name: Alyssa
Derived from the yellow, white, pink, or purple Alyssum flower. First used in popularity as a girl's name in 1963 and listed among the top 100 in 1986, just two years after actress Alyssa Milano began her career on the television sitcom, "Who's the Boss?" The name has continued to climb among the top 20, likely due to the fashionable "y" in the middle spelling.
