Like to keep everyone guessing? Is Allie short for Allison, Alexandra, Alana, Alice or something else entirely? Surprise—Allie has become so popular that it’s actually a name in itself. It was probably derived from Allison, which means “nobility” and has been a first name in some parts of the world since medieval times. In the US, Allie took off in the early 20th century but faded from the spotlight before reemerging in the mid-1980s. It was still popular in 1996 when country singer Garth Brooks gave the name to his daughter.
