Meaning and name origin
Clarisse \c-la-risse, clar(is)-se\ as a girl's name is of Latin origin, and the meaning of Clarisse is "bright, famous; fame; most bright, most famous". Clarisse is a variant of Claire (Latin): French form of Clara. Also a variant of Clarice (Latin): medieval English and French form of Claritia, which may have meant "fame" (from "clarus" meaning "famous"), but as a given name probably an elaboration of Clara. Clarisse is also used as a variant of Clarissa (Latin).
Clarisse is not a popular first name for females and an equally uncommon surname or last name for all people (2000 U.S. Census).
