What does the name Lisa Marie mean? I am asking because it is the name of a young girl we are adopting-she is 4yrs old and I believe she is past the age where we could change her name without having her become confused. My wife and I were wondering what her name means. I appreciate any help with this, we have been unsuccessful in our search for the meaning so far.

Lisa is short for Elizabeth and means "God's promise". Marie is a variant of the Hebrew Mary/Maryam and means "wished for child", "our Lady", among other meanins. Lisa Marie is made up of these two names and has their meanings, it is unlikely that the two words together create a new meaning.
As for Muslims who read this, Lisa Marie is an acceptable name for a Muslim child since it has a good meaning.
