Alisa is the Russian, Ukrainian, Bosnian, and Finnish form of Alice which comes from Old French Aalis via Germanic Adelais, a short form of Adalheidis meaning “noble kind, type” or “of a noble kind”, made up from Germanic elements adal (noble) and heid (kind, sort, type), both of which derive from a PIE root word. Alisa is also a Spanish and Portuguese word, the third-person singular of alisar meaning “to smooth, to level”.
