Sissy (sometimes just Sis) is a relationship nickname formed from sister, given to girls to indicate their role in the family, especially the oldest female sibling. It can also be applied to girls as a term of affection from friends who are not family members.

For some girls and women, sissy is used so pervasively it replaces the given name. In some cases, "Sissy" can even be an abbreviation of the given name, as with Harry Potter character, Narcissa "Cissy" Malfoy.
