I can't believe anybody would ever think Addison is a boys name! It's like saying Madison or Allison are boys names too! Anyway it's a really cute GIRL name.

So my husband and I don't know the sex but we are thinking if it's a girl the name, Addison Leigh. What are your thoughts?

My name is Addison. I have to comment that, as a 36 year-old American man of English origin (whose father's name was Adam), I feel a bit queasy with the public surprise that Addison is a male name. It has been for hundreds of years.

i love the name addison
we had our first baby and named her Addisyn, we spelt it with a Y though, just to be a bit different.
i never knew it was a boy's name though.
we named her addisyn because her dad's name is adam and growning up everyone called him Addi, and thats what we call our daughter , little Addi...just like her daddy!
Addison Rylee
written by Megan, February 07, 2010
I was aware that Addison originated as a boys name, however it is now an up and coming popular girls name. I was considering using it for a middle name if we had a boy and then decided we would name our baby girl Addison Rylee. The name always stood out to me and we call now our daughter Addy (most of the time). The girls are stealing a lot of "boys" names these days.. :)

Addison means SON of Adam....

I named my son Addison Thomas and now I have to deal with all these girls being named Addison. At least if you are going to name a girl that change the spelling. There are too many cute girl names out there to be taking boy names.
