Cute for a girl, but I still think it's a strong, masculine name. His middle names is "James" and I think it flows nicely. I think it's an intelligent name as well."

  • "We are naming our son Addison. When people name their children do they ever research the meaning of the name. It has been a mans name since the early 18th Century!!! I don't mind that girls are called it - but it is a boys name :). Maybe because of Maddison that is a boys name too, which was made a popular girls name in "splash" in the 80's. I know a girl called Johny and Toni and it suits them but who are we to say that it "sounds like a girls name"." Mar. 18, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "it sounds totally like a BOYS name, hence the name AddiSON, means "son of Adam". Duh. Dumb parents" Nov. 21, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I agree that Addison doesn't sound like a boy's name." Aug. 5, 2007: Report as inappropriate
