Comments and insights on the name Ellison: | Edit

It's for all you folks who like the name "Allison" but think you want something with more pizzaz.

I like this name, and I think it could also work well for a boy.

Personal experiences with the name Ellison: | Edit

We chose Ellison as our daughter's middle name. Her father wanted Ella but I thought it far too popular and I wanted a family name. We compromised on Ellison as a combo of Ella and Allison (a traditionally male name in my family) and we love it!

I named my daughter Ellison after the Ellison ballet! I've gotten a lot of comments about how cute it is:).
