Meaning:son of Adam
Addison became a trendy girl’s name soon after the introduction of a major character, Dr. Addison Montgomery, on 'Grey’s Anatomy' in 2005. Since the love affair with Addison shows no signs of waning, parents who like the name but not its mega-popularity are giving it a slight spelling twist to make it a bit different. That’s how Addyson was born. It feels more feminine than Addison, which is unisex, and it lends itself to the sweet nickname Addy.
