Would it be a bad idea to use Alison since Brinlee's middle name is Addisyn? They're very similar in sound, so I was curious.... even though one would be a first name and the other is a middle name that only gets used when Brinlee is in trouble!

I think it's fine. They aren't too similar anyway. Alison ends with "son" and Addisyn ends with "syn," and I don't pronounce those the same way. If they were both first names it might be too matchy, but not if one is a first name and the other is a middle name.

I love the name Alison.

I'm getting no where with DH. I called him (he is at work) and asked him if he liked Alison. His first comment was "It is really close to Addisyn." and his next comment was "And I don't like the nickname Ally."

Ugh!!!

Why can't he just focus on the name.... and if he doesn't like Ally, he doesn't have to call her Ally. Her name will be Alison LOL

So, this name probably won't be added to our list (which is blank), but I do like the name.

I don't think it would be a problem with Brinlee's middle name.

i dont think its a problem because like you said its her middle name and you don't use it often, so I think its fine if you can get DH on board!

I cant see it being a problem personally. It sucks that your husband isnt a fan of the name, maybe he'll warm round to it soon. I prefer the spelling Allison - it makes it look more "full" haha. I think it goes really nicely with Brinlee too. Good luck!
