Alexandria or Addison

( i would also like variations on the spellings ) ...

I think I like the sound of Addison better ( my name is Andrea, so I might think that since alexandria sounds too similar) ...

BUT I love the nickname Allie ( i like addie too, I just like Allie more) ... and since they are both longer names, I know we will be using the nickname ...

which do you like better ? Our last name is Carver ..

  • I guess I just realized something too... we plan on having more children -- we both want 4 or 5 ... if we have a boy we could name him alexander ( alex) ... so maybe it would be nice to go with addison now ??

    I still want other opinions and different spellings please !

  • I have to vote for Alexandria or Allison, if you like Allie.

    Addison reminds me of Addison's disease, and you don't want kids at school calling her Addison's disease. Kids are super mean.

  • I like Alexandria better. Addison is just too common for my tastes. I have a friend from high school named Alexa. Just another option.

  • I thought Addison was a boys name?

  • I prefer Alexandria. I like the nickname Allie more than Addie. Addison has always been a boy's name IMO.
