But did you know that this is not the real name of the Thai artist? Lisa had a different name originally, why did she decide to change her real name?


Many would believe that Lalisa Manobal is the real name of Lisa from BLACKPINK, but her original nickname was Pranpriya Manobal, that name was given at her birth on March 27, 1997; and it means beloved soul, it really is beautiful.

In Thailand they sometimes call Lisa like that or with a cute nickname that is ‘Pokpak‘, this is only done by the closest friends of the idol.

But Pranpriya decided to change her name, why did she do it herself? Her desire to shine from her led her to make this decision.


When Lisa, then Pranpriya, was 13 years old she went to a fortune teller who told her to change her name to ‘Lalisa’ as this would bring her a great fortune, this name means ‘someone who is praised’ and this is why who dutifully changed her name to Lalisa which she uses with her short version ‘Lisa’.

Lisa’s surname has been preserved, Manobal, from birth and until now she shines as a great artist who came from Thailand to Korea to shine like no one else; a great pride for her family and her country of origin.
