The name is quite common in Scandinavia, Germany and Switzerland: Lise Lotte, Lise-Lotte or Liselotte.
It is not surprising that there aren't any Catholic bishops called Lise-Lotte, but I didn't know that the CoE didn't have female bishops.
In addition to Lise-Lotte Rebel, Denmark has one Tine and two Mariannes; and Greenland has a Sofie:
"Stupidity renders itself invisible by assuming very large proportions. Completely unreasonable claims are irrefutable. Ni-en-leh pointed out that a philosopher might get into trouble by claiming that two times two makes five, but he does not risk much by claiming that two times two makes shoe polish." B. Brecht
"The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness. The demand to give up the illusion about its condition is the demand to give up a condition which needs illusions." K. Marx
