Addison for a boy?

I know it used to be a male name and now it's more of a female name. Would you name your boy Addison?

 

*Edit to add:  I don't want to name a boy Addison.  Actually, my daughter's name is Addison.  I asked because my friend is a teacher and there is a boy my daughter's age in her class named Addison.  Just wondered if anyone else would name their boy Addison. lol

  • Absolutely not. It totally sounds like a girl name IMO.

  • I reread the name. It does not sound like a boy name. It sounds like a girl name.

  • I would NEVER name a girl Addison, to me it sounds like a boy name but that could be because i knew a boy named Addison back before the name became popular
