It is possible that the person who used LISS as a last name used their first to make it last,
Liss is some kind of a short form for …. Elyse, Elisa, Elise etc. like in Jewish its usually becomes Esther
Maybe they arrived to the New World and didn’t want to have a Jewish sounding name.
Happy Passover & Happy Easter
Blessings of Good Health
