"My name is Alyson and it's hard to find personalized items and people spell it wrong. I get a lot of comments on the unusual spelling. Hey, I'm not the one who picked it. My patents did. I was clearly named way ahead of the trend back in 1962. I really like my name and spelling." Sep. 20, 2016:
"My mom named me Alyson because of the way it writes. She thought the loops with "y" looked better. People usually spell my name wrong but I am happy to be different" Nov. 10, 2010:
"Alyson is my second name. I have never liked it but strange to say I love the name Alice. Not sure what that is about. I am glad it is my second name....I never have to tell anyone. Sorry to those of you with it as a first name. Nothing personal." Feb. 9, 2009:
"Alyson, while unique, is nice, but I must say, I prefer the traditional spelling of "Allison" better." Jan. 9, 2009:
"I'm Alyson too! It's an exotic way of spelling a common name. It's always nice to be a little different." Jul. 9, 2008:
"It's taken me awhile but I'm finally happy with having "Alyson" as my first name. The good thing is, nothing rhymes with it (no teasing in the schoolyard) and because it is spelled with a 'y', it is fairly unique compared to others the same age as me. It is frustrating to have it constantly spelled wrong, and some ethnic groups can't pronounce it (they say "a-LIE-zon") but on the whole, these are minor complaints for an otherwise pretty and intelligent-sounding name."

"My name is Alyson, and NO ONE EVER spells it right. Also, it was a drag to try and buy personalized items that only had "Allison" or "Alison" on them. These days, there are Alysons everywhere you turn." Feb. 6, 2007:
"omg! i wrote something in the 'Alison' section not expecting there to be Alyson with a 'y', but there is!!! Yeay! i love my name!" Apr. 20, 2006:
