Other Origin(s):French
When someone, presumably a parent, wanted an alternative to the often-used feminine names Alison and Allison, the variant Allyson was born. And wow, does it come from a big family! This lineage began with the French and German Alice, meaning “nobility.” Then Alyson, Alisson, and Allyson joined the clan during some creative moments over the last century. Wondering how to decide which one will suit baby best? Think about how traditional you want to be and go from there. Since this name is rooted in royalty, whichever spelling you choose is sure to be worthy of your bouncing little one.
