Meaning:son of Adam
Once considered a boys' name, Addison became hugely popular as a girls' name thanks to TV character Dr. Addison Montgomery, a female doctor on Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice. The popularity of Madison helped pave the way for Addison’s acceptance as a girls' name, and now the variations Addyson and Addisyn are trending as well. Actor Matthew Lilliard, football player Don Muhlback and baseball players Jason Bay and Mark Teixeira all have daughters named Addison.
