Characteristics of Addisyn
Etymology & Historical Origin - Addisyn
Addisyn is an Americanized respelling of Addison which is the transferred use of a Scottish surname meaning “son of Addie”, Addie being a medieval Scottish Lowlands nickname for Adam. So Addison basically means ‘son of Adam.’ It has become a popular given name mainly in the United States and Canada, but also Australia (for girls). Addison started out in the United States as a masculine personal name, but eventually American parents of daughters responded to this androgynous sounding surname and started using it for their little girls in 1994. It coincided with the popularity of Madison (a similar sounding name used heavily in America). The more popular Addison became for girls, the less popular it was for boys. It finally fell off the male charts in 2009 so now the name is considered almost exclusively female. Addisyn is a spelling variant created in the United States probably to feminize it even more with the “-syn” rather than ‘-son” suffix.
Popularity of the Name Addisyn
Addison has a history of having been used for boys in the United States since the 19th century (although at pretty low levels of popularity). Addison became a female name in 1994 and achieved far more success than her male counterpart. She has soared up the charts to become the 11th most commonly used female name in America (2010). Not surprisingly, a couple of “creatyve” spelling variations began to emerge. Addisyn first showed up in 2006. Her usage has been shadowing the success of her older sister Addison, but at much lower levels. There were over 13,000 baby girls given the name Addison (or some variation) in 2010, and 80% of those babies received the traditional spelling of Addison. Addyson is the second most popular form of the name (12%) with Addisyn (6%) and Adyson (2%) bringing up the rear. The trend of making-up new spellings for overly popular names is something distinct to Americans, generally speaking, another effort toward perceived individuality. We see how the “-syn” suffix could be considered more appealing for baby girls than the ever masculine “-son” suffix, but invented spellings usually cause confusion later in life. Your daughter will most likely be confirming and reconfirming the spelling of her name throughout her life which some say can get very tiresome. Although others say they absolutely love their own original spelling stamp on their name. Just something pragmatic to consider if you love unique spellings.
