I only know it as a boy's name. Jenny Colgan wrote a novel 'Talking to Addison' years ago in which Addison was the good-looking male housemate.

I am Canadian and here it is certainly a girl's name. I know an Addison Ann and an Addison Elizabeth. I like both.

Agree with other posters re Lee. Addison Lee fit well together but is the name of a London taxi firm!!!

It sounds like a brand of wheelie bin or something to me, but I'm not keen on the whole surname for girls name thing thats come over from the US.

Now I've read the Addison Lee & got that in my head, can't think of anything else!

Addison Taylor

So, would Addison be the middle name? I'm confused (forgive me, it's early).

As a middle name = great; as a first name = horrible, imho. It sounds very harsh. You did ask!

How about:
Madison Addison
Harrison Addison
Bobby-Sue Addison
Savanna Addison

It's a disease for me too, I'm afraid.

Yes but you are in North America where Mackenzie, Taylor and Shaun are girls names.

Sorry, but the first thing that came to mind was Addison's disease

Then a boy's name. I don't like it at all.

My first thought was a disease.

Gooseysgirl Tue 26-Mar-13 06:35:36

Disease or the cab firm

But in answer to your question OP, I think Rose goes nicely. I'd probably go with a one syllable middle name..

ChristineDaae Tue 26-Mar-13 06:40:23

Wow it's a good thing I'm not one of them people who takes these things to heart!! But hey the world would be a boring/confusing place if we all had the sane taste!

Also OP - there is an Edwards Syndrome... That doesn't seem to put off the millions of parents who babe their kid Edward smile

LandofTute Tue 26-Mar-13 10:55:15

That's a bit different though. Edward is a very well known, long established boys' name /has been the name of monarchs etc. Addison isn't

wizzler Tue 26-Mar-13 21:04:18

Joy... it's DD's middle name and I heartily recommend it ! smile

Thomas?
<lightbulb moment>

Syndrome? Disease?

Sokmonsta Wed 27-Mar-13 10:43:55

May. My niece is adyson may. I'd go with a short name to balance out the syllables.

I thought Addison was a boys name too? My friends little boys is called that

Madison is the only option.
