  • "I love the name Allison Dawn. The girl who said she didn't like Dawn as a middle name should do a poll of her friends asking what they think about the name. I think she would be surprised at the results. The name Allison Dawn means noble, kind, or truthful sunrise. It alludes to the rise or revelation of truth, kindness and nobility. It is a very cool name." Jan. 15, 2013: Report as inappropriate

I hope I can convince him, I can't imagine our daughter's name spelled any other way :)" Jan. 9, 2009: Report as inappropriate

I wish it was all spelled the same! But I don't care anymore like I use to. If you like GO FOR IT!" Jan. 19, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name and it suits me so well. One thing I hate about my name is many people often spell my name with one "L" instead of two Ls. I can't understand why most people spell Alison instead of Allison. Allison definitely looks better than Alison." Dec. 30, 2007: Report as inappropriate

It doesn't have the cache it used to have, paired with a name like Ashley. Brr." Jun. 8, 2005: Report as inappropriate

Apr. 16, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Allison. i dont mind the name but i dont like it when people automaticly assume they can call me alley. i hate being called alley it sounds to cutesey. even more then that i hate being called alice. it also gets annoying when people dont pronounce the hole name its like they dont see the 'i' and they pronounce it like Al-Son" May. 8, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Allison. Although it's very common, I have always loved it. I love the way it sounds and looks, and I also like its nickname- Allie/Ally. The only down side is that people often misspell it, with only one L or with a Y instead of an i. But I think that's a small price to pay. If you're thinking of naming your baby girl Allison, go for it!" Nov. 20, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Allison Marie and I was the only Allison from K to Sr. year of high school. Now I walk through a store and hear it all the time for younger kids. I receive so many compliments on my name. But don't like the nickname Allie. I think it's a pretty enough name on it's own." Oct. 8, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "This was my best friend's name when I was a teenager, although she spelled it with one L. I've never cared for it and I don't know why. Just something about the way it sounds doesn't appeal to me. I don't know why it's so popular. But it's not nearly as bad as Madison." Sep. 17, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter's name is Allison Maya. I liked the alternate spellings, like Alyson, but traditionally, it's ALLISON, so I went with that version. I love it...strong but pretty!" Aug. 25, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "We just had a baby girl we called Allison Joy. It suits her so much. Allison to me sound sweet and girly while Joy is the Joy of our lives. We call her Allie for short sometimes." Feb. 13, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "47 years old, I never met another Allison till I was in high school. It seems very popular with the kids now, I meet a lot of grade-schoolers with the name and lots of them go by Allie. My sister sometimes called me Alasalamander and Big Al, but I really don't have any nicknames. The name was so unusual growing up, I always got called Alice, which I hated, and Alice in Wonderland, which I didn't mind because I liked the story. As I've gotten older, I've grown to love the name because it perfectly expresses my own individuality. "Pulling an Allison" is a funny expression in our family. Hope everybody else with it grows to love it as much as I do now." Jan. 12, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "Sure I love my name and all but sometimes I think it sounds snobby. You know all stuck up, so I go by Allie for short. And it works out pretty well. Although there are about 3 other people I know who have the same name, so it's not as unique as I'd like it to be. And Allison is even more common." Sep. 29, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "I've definitely gotten the Alice confusion many times. Also, several people have tried to spell it Alysoun, which I've never understood." Jul. 15, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Allison and I have four close friends also with the name Allison but i am the only one who gets to be called "ALLISON"!!! The rest of the girls either go by Allie or last name or nickname. I have never wanted a different name it was just popular when i was born!!!" Apr. 13, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Allison and when I was a kid a wished my parents had spelled it Allyson so I could be different. Now I like it the way it is." Jan. 23, 2006: Report as inappropriate
