I love this name, but I thought it was pretty popular right now. When I look online though, it is ranked pretty low on the list (#866 in US births). Thoughts?

You ladies are my experts. :p

Re: Addison
Wow, I would have guessed it was much higher in the rankings! It is one of the few really contemporary girls names that I really like!

Re: Addison
The site I found said it peaked in 2007, but then dropped dramatically. Hmm

Re: Addison
I love, love, love the name! Unfortunately, my best friend beat me to having a girl and named her Addisyn. She didn't know it was a name I liked so it was a total coincidence. Needless to say, I won't use Addisyn now, but I still love it!

Re: Addison
I love this name (also like it on a boy). It's a bit of a GP of mine and I love seeing other people using it.

V surprised it's so low in the rankings, perhaps with the Addyson, Addisyn etc spellings combined it'd be a lot higher. Or perhaps it's just board popular.

Re: Addison
I think Madison is far popular, so we feel like Addison is popular, when it isn't.

Re: Addison
It's actually #12 on the female list :( It's one of the trendier/unisex names that I like.

Re: Addison
Do you have a link? I'm trying to find a reliable site. I guess some of them are incorrect. Thanks!

Re: Addison
The Social Security Administration website is the most accurate as to the number of babies born in the US with that name. It was #12 for 2008 and 2009. The other websites are usually just rankings on how much its users like a name and/or used a name.

Popular baby names

And, I like the name Addison for a girl!

Re: Addison
yep....I always refer to the social security website as it's the most accurate. The # you had wasn't incorrect...it was just on the boy's list...the name is much more popular with girls.
