LieseIf it hadn't been for the English meaning, I'd spell this Lies, but that sounds so dishonest. I originally liked it as a nickname for Annaliese, but I started to prefer it on its own.
Liese was originally a German and Dutch diminutive of Elisabeth. Now it can be a short form of any number of German names containing the -liese element like Annaliese, Heidelies etc.
