Sorry, no etymologies found.
Tissā – i.e., (a girl) born under the lucky star or constellation of Tissa, a celestial archer (partly identical with Cancer) – suggests a word-play on tisso sikkhāyo, the three branches of religious training (morals, mind, 'insight').
Even the 'common stock' of refrains is different, the only exceptions being that of kataŋ Buddhassa sāsanaŋ, tisso vijjā anuppattā, and n'atthi 'dāni punabbhavo.
