- Personal experiences with the name Allyson
My sisters name is allyson. Middle name Mackenzie. '92. My name is Rebecca.
My name is Allyson Joy. I found it funny because my little sister's name is Rebecca. Odd coincidence!
My daughters name is Allyson. My wife is the one who decided on the spelling. I got to pick her middle name, "Riley". :)
I’m an Allyson Rebecca myself! Born in the late 70’s, so quite ahead of the curve when it came to unconventional spellings of the name. (My parents took the spelling from the classic actress June Allyson)
My name is Allyson and my middle is Michelle. I was born in '99. I never used the nickname Ally because there was an Alexandria in the neighborhood I grew up in who went by Ally, so I went by Alice occasionally. Although, my parents had named me Allyson with a 'y' so that I could use the nickname Ally.
