    I think it's a lovely name.

    As soon as you share your name choices you need to be prepared for all sorts of stupid comments. I know it's hard when it's a name you really love, but just smile and nod.

    I always new what my dd's name would be so I let family and a few close friends know. One friend in particular continued to constantly (email/random text/phone) suggest other names! I don't know if she hated my name, loved it and didn't want me to use it or just thought she had some input, but it was the most bizarre thing ever! She eventually have up when my response to everything was "that's quite nice".

    I think it's a nice name too. Go with what you want. Don't change your mind just because some people don't like it. It has a family connection for you so go for it.

    Addison is a great name, she will be able to shorten it or come up with a stack of nicknames. If anyone gives you grief over names and imply the child might get teased for their name, my standard response is along the lines of "Well they will grow up to be resilient then. You've not heard of the song 'A boy named Sue?"

    Saying that, early on with DD I told my bestie the names I had been thinking of, surprisingly she screwed up her face and kept trying to convince me otherwise. Much later, I find out that one of her kids (who has multiple middle names) had one of these main****** names I had picked. Needless to say that was the last time I mentioned names to her, she got fairly offended when I wouldn't tell her what DDs final name was going to be. Ah well... Thats called a consequence, criticise the names I choose and you're out of the loop lol.

    Both DD and DS have unique first names and mainstram second names. If they at some stage hate their first name, I am fine with them using their second name. Or calling themselves something different. I happily consulted with their godmumma and DH about names. A few others were 'told'. No one has dared to criticise DS's name... To my face at least lol. Look out if they did!

    It's a really nice name and if it's a family name, even better to carry on that bit of tradition. I like names that are a bit different. And I certainly would never think of Addison as a boys name.

    I have an unusual name but it's a family name - I'm the the eighth person in my family with the same first name and my dad is the third to have the same first, middle and surname. I admit it was a bit confusing when we had family reunions but we all have very different family nicknames too.

    Do you think maybe that's why your DH's family didn't like it...it wasn't their family name?

    If you and your DH like it then I wouldn't worry about the rest.

    I am still getting comments after a year. They have not stopped or gotten nicer since the birth.
    Some people are just going to try to get you down.
    Ds2 doesn't care what his name is and dh and I love it.
    Go with your heart and you can't go wrong.

    It was a boys name long before it became popular for girls. It literally means son of Adam...but I hear it mostly as a girls name these days.
    It doesn't matter though, names seem very interchangeable nowadays, and who cares what other people think, if you like it

    I think Addison Elizabeth is a beautiful name! This is exactly why I plan not to tell anyone the names we have chosen until the baby is born. I'd find it so hard not to be swayed by negative comments, especially from close family and friends. I really hope you can ignore them and if you love it use it!
