IMO, doesn't really go with the others. The other girl names are so feminine that I was confused for a second if Addison was for a boy. I had to re-read that it was for a girl. It's too unisex in the midst of all those other decidedly feminine and decidedly masculine names.

I really, really dislike the name Addison on a girl. It is soo masculine and so popular now that I think it's going to sound very dated years from now (much like the names Diane, Pamela, Donna, etc.). It doesn't really go with your other names because they are very nice, traditional names and Addison is very trendy (for a girl, anyway). Used in that sibset I would assume Addison was a boy since all of the names are traditional and it is traditionaly a boy's name.

Ditto to what everyone else said. The other names on your list are lovely and classic. Addison doesn't fit in at all. Besides, I don't like that the main reason it started being used as a name for girls was because of a character on Gray's Anatomy. I can't really separate it from that in my mind.

I like Addison, but I don't think it fits your names well. Addison goes along the boyish names trend for girls, whereas the others go along with the classic, old fashioned trend.

If you really love Addison, don't worry so much. But if you really want your sibset to match, then you should see which category you like more names from and stick with that one.

Personally, I love it. I named my daughter Addisyn Grace. I changed the spelling so it looked girlier. I think it goes lovely with the other names. As for the "to masculine" comment, how masculine does Addie sound as a nn? Sounds girlie to me. I think it's an all around great name. JMOT

I love the name Addison and think it sounds beautiful with your other names. I would use it myself if I didn't already have a niece by that name.

I love the name Addison for a girl. I know a little boy with that name but I have always thought of it as a girl's name. I say go for it!

I like the name for girls and I love it for a boy but now it's too popular as a girl names. I don't think it matches your other names though.
