You have chosen a really lovely name.
Whenever people turn their noses up at something I like, I quickly ask myself if those people are 'avatars of fashion'. Generally I realise they are not, have a chuckle about it, and carry on.

I had never heard of the name til Grey's Anatomy and tbh I think that's the association most people of our generation would have. It's not like you've chosen Alligator Hepzibah for goodness sake! If you feel in your heart that it's the right name then that's all that matters :-)

I love this name! I also love gender-neutral names but I always thought Addison was a girls name. Either way - this is one choice in life that is for you and DH alone - go with it

I like Addison, provided its not spelt Adysin it's lovely .
It's actually pretty common (top 100 anyway). But people that haven't been around young kids tend to think names are outrageous when they are actually well known.
I would only ever comment negatively on a name if there was something the parents had missed (Jenna Taylor for example).

I think it's a lovely name for a girl
We didn't tell people our chosen names for that reason.

I absolutely love the name Addison but always thought it was a girls name a well. If I was to have another girl it would definitely be on my short list.
With dd3 we did not tell anybody the name we had chosen which prevented people from voicing their opinions on the names we liked.
Beautiful name and I don't understand why you are getting such negative feedback on it. It is a classy name!

Ooh I had Addison Elizabeth as a maybe for my daughter, it just sounds too close to my own name so we went with Ariel instead...
Love the name!

Its a lovely name. I know a little girl called Addison and she gets called Addi alot.
When I was having ds two people said they didnt like his name when I casually mentioned it, but I loved it and still used it.
