Larissa is both Greek and Russian-derived and means: mythical woman and cheerfulness.

The name Larisa (more seldom Larissa, or Laryssa) derives from the Old Greek town name Larissa. Others consider it is related to the Latin word "larus" or Greek "liarus" which means a seagull. The initial meaning of the word is a gluttonous bird. Another version points the Old Greek word "laros", which means "sweet, pleasant", as the initial word. The name Larisa means: a seagull, sweet, pleasant. larissa can't interact with the letter T or Te or a name starting with T.
