Isn't Addison a boy's name? It means Son of Adam or something like that?

As Addison is definitely modern, I'd go for something traditional
Addison Elizabeth
Addison Mary
Addison Jane
or even better a family name if you have one.

FlowerBird Sun 10-Mar-13 17:01:20

I like Addison Mary and Addison Lucy a lot. Have just read another post with everyone saying Addison is a boys name and they hate it. I may rethink as no gender ambiguity was one of my rules.

I like Addison for a girl smile

Addison Elizabeth
Addison Eleanor
Addison Edith
Addison Catelyn
Addison Cara
Addison Ava

Here was me thinking Addison was a boys name...

FairyArmadillo Sun 10-Mar-13 17:46:17

Know a girl Addison born last year. It's a unisex name like Robin/Robyn. Don't know if she has a middle name.

DonderandBlitzen Sun 10-Mar-13 17:49:09

There is a disease called Addison's Disease, but if that isn't an issue for you, Addison Lara could work.

PhyllisDoris Sun 10-Mar-13 17:50:56

I assumed it was a boys' name too, or a surname. Seems a weird name for a little girl blush

5madthings Sun 10-Mar-13 17:54:17

I know Addison as a girls name and it was on my list for dd but dp didn't like it.

Addison rose?

RobinSparkles Sun 10-Mar-13 18:22:52

FlowerBird, I don't hate it, I just wasn't sure smile.
I did have a google of the name after I posted and it is a name that is given to girls but according to the the Meaning of names thingy it isn't a legitimate unisex name because of the masculine meaning.

I've only ever heard it as a boy's name.

The name Robin means Bright Fame so it's not quite the same as the meaning isn't masculine.

Any name with Son on the end is masculine as it usually means "Son of..."

everlong Sun 10-Mar-13 19:26:46

Addison is awful. It's a surname, a disease.

There are so many beautiful girls names, why would you saddle a girl with Addison?

Rhubarbgarden Sun 10-Mar-13 19:33:01

Sounds like Alison said with a cold.

cuillereasoupe Mon 11-Mar-13 15:20:36

Sorry, it sounds very masculine (Joseph Addison) and very diseasy to me too.

HolidayArmadillo Mon 11-Mar-13 15:24:14

Well as a huge Greys Anatomy/Private Practice fan I vote Addison Montgomery grin

SJJones Mon 11-Mar-13 16:16:38

What about Madison?? It seems a little softer.

badtime Mon 11-Mar-13 16:35:58

How about Adeline?

LulaPalooza Mon 11-Mar-13 16:52:33

Agree with Rhubarb re Lee... anyone who lives or works in London will do the same...

WormCanner Mon 11-Mar-13 18:19:02

Disease was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw "Addison".

ChristineDaae Mon 25-Mar-13 22:21:37

I have a 2yo Addison, she had a long, classic family name as her middle name.

Snazzynewyear Mon 25-Mar-13 22:27:54

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.

MyPetMonsterAndMe Mon 25-Mar-13 23:10:18

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

CandlestickOlder Tue 26-Mar-13 00:54:24

With rhubarb and lula...

raisah Tue 26-Mar-13 03:43:20

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

sleepywombat Tue 26-Mar-13 03:56:32

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!

MusicalEndorphins Tue 26-Mar-13 05:22:58

Addison Taylor

elQuintoConyo Tue 26-Mar-13 05:42:04

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

SuckingDiesel Tue 26-Mar-13 06:17:44

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

sashh Tue 26-Mar-13 06:21:51

I am Canadian and here it is certainly a girl's name.

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

Bunbaker Tue 26-Mar-13 06:24:16

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.

exoticfruits Tue 26-Mar-13 06:30:21

My first thought was a disease.

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

Disease or the cab firm

Gooseysgirl Tue 26-Mar-13 06:37:15

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!

ChristineDaae Tue 26-Mar-13 06:41:19

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

<lightbulb moment>

mercibucket Tue 26-Mar-13 21:12:27

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.

Tranquilitybaby Wed 27-Mar-13 23:59:43

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

Redbindy Thu 28-Mar-13 00:03:30

Madison is the only option.
