[name_u]Addison[/name_u] is a good name for a boy. Never liked it on a girl. I encourage it! [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] sounds nice with [name_u]Addison[/name_u].

I adore [name_u]Addison[/name_u], on a boy/man. I have only known one [name_u]Addison[/name_u], a boy that was on my son’s baseball team. We have [name_u]Addison[/name_u] on our boy list. [name_u]Addison[/name_u] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] is handsome.

I like [name_u]Addison[/name_u] on a girl, but I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] it on a boy! [name_u]Addison[/name_u] [name_m]Peter[/name_m] [name_u]Grey[/name_u] was on my boys’ list a short while ago. I only dropped it because I had too many favorites, and I couldn’t see myself realistically using it, especially since I rather wanted to avoid using too many unisex names for boys, and I had higher ones up on my list at that point (specifically [name_u]Avery[/name_u] and [name_u]Bailey[/name_u]). [name_u]Bailey[/name_u]'s now gone from my list, as well, but I currently have [name_u]Avery[/name_u] and [name_u]Schuyler[/name_u]. I don’t know if I’d have the guts to use it, but I adore [name_u]Addison[/name_u] for a boy, and [name_u]Addison[/name_u] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] is pretty great! If he ever couldn’t deal with the pressure to be a guy [name_u]Addison[/name_u], he could always go by [name_m]Thomas[/name_m]/[name_m]Tom[/name_m]/[name_m]Tommy[/name_m].

I like [name_u]Addison[/name_u] for a boy, and while I do think it might be misinterpreted as being a girls name from time to time, it’s easily corrected. It was originally a boy’s name, and it wouldn’t be too hard for people to see it that way again. My own brother’s name is a variant spelling of [name_f]Jade[/name_f], and in his 25 years, he’s never had an issue with it being a ‘girl’s name’.

[name_u]Addison[/name_u] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] is nice, and worth keeping around.

The only [name_u]Addison[/name_u] I’ve known personally was a boy, so I say yes, [name_u]Addison[/name_u] works very well on a boy. Go for it.

Yes, yes, yes!
