"My name is Addison. The name means "Son of Adam" so why would you name your daughter that. This girl name trend is stupid." May. 16, 2017:
"My sons name is Addison and I love it! Shortly after he was born, Grays Anatomy comes out with a female names Addison and all of the sudden people were naming their girls it! 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." Jan. 19, 2013:

"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:
