Thoughts? My friend has switched from Aiden to Addison Taylor Scott for her son's name. I personally have never met a boy named Addison, only a girl, who was a baby at the daycare I used to work at lol. Used to call her Addiebug, she was my angel :) What do you ladies think, would you name your son Addison, or is it a girl's name?

I wouldn't name my son Addison. But, I also wouldn't make fun of the name.

I wouldn't. Everyone is naming their baby girls addison now. And if I heard it I would think it was a girl. My daughter's name is Aubrey though and it is originally a boy name.

I see it as a unisex name, I have a friend with a 1.5yr old boy named Addison and a friend with a 2.5yr old girl named Addison so I've seen it and heard it said both ways.
I don't particularly like the name personally, but it's not horrible either. Just not on my names list :)

Addison means "Son of Adam," so yeah.



Also adorable.

In my personal opinion, it's a little weird just because the little girl at my daycare was like my baby before I had my daughter, I was there with her when she was still a small baby to when she was learning to walk (a little later than the rest because both of her legs had been broken at her previous daycare), she called me momma and i called her Addiebug, she was definitely my favorite girl, but unfortunately she moved away. So I guess I'm accustomed to seeing it as a girl's name, just because I was so close to a little girl named Addison (I believe her name was spelled differently tho, I can't remember exactly, but I'm just used to calling her Addiebug)

Addison IS a boys name. Not your fault mothers are stupid and giving their daughter's boys names.

Personally I like it. I know two guys named Addison & only one girl. I don't like it enough to name my son that, but it can be used either way.

I prefer it as a boys name. That's what it started out as. I think people just like to be 'trendy' and make boy's names, girls names. Lol. Not that I have room to talk. My mom named me Riley. Haha.

Haha, True. Telemarketers and such will ask for Mr. It's like, errm. He doesn't exsist? Lol. But I like the my name and the way it's spelled. I would hate if its was Rylee or Rylie or something like that. I'll be called a man from time to time from people who don't know me.

I absolutely love it on a boy. It doesn't sound feminine to me at all and I find it mind boggling that people find it to be a feminine name just because its being used on girls lol.
I can understand names like Ashley or Kelsey but this new trend of using names on girls that end in son is so odd.
