Characteristics of Alisson
Etymology & Historical Origin - Alisson
Alisson is yet another modern Americanized spelling of Alison. One of the most common English female names dating back to medieval times, Alison is essentially a diminutive of Alice (brought to England as Aalis by the Norman-French). Aalis (later Alice) developed as a reduced spelling variant of the personal name “Adalheidis” (Adelaide), from the Germanic elements “adal” meaning “noble” and “heid” meaning “kind, sort”. Alison persisted in popularity in England and Scotland throughout the Middle Ages before eventually falling from favor around the 16th century. However, despite Alison going out of style in England, it maintained its status in Scotland. As a result, Alison will always carry a particular Scottish flavor. The name was eventually resurrected from the dead in the 20th century during which time it enjoyed a resurgence of popularity. Especially in America. And, as American parents are apt to do, several mutated spellings began to emerge. Of course the Alison and Allison spellings are the most common, Alisson, Allisson, Allyson and Alyson have also showed up to the party. It all depends on the particular parental fondness for “l”s and “s”s or “i” vs. “y”. Allie and Ally are both super common nicknames for this old Anglo-Norman noble darling.
Popularity of the Name Alisson
Allison with two “l”s and one “s” is by far the most common spelling of this name in America right now. In a distant second and third place are Alison (traditional and minimalistic) and Allyson (hip and modern). Alisson and Allisson are actually the least preferred spellings of this name. In fact, Alisson has only been on the Top 1000 list since 2008 so this particular spelling has never been common enough to make the list until very recently. Her quasi-success is mirroring the movements of Allison on the charts (best year came in 2009 when Allison was the 30th most commonly chosen baby girl name). That same year, Alisson was ranked #610 - her best year ever, as well. If you like classic, go with Alison or Allison. If you like contemporary, go with Alyson or Allyson. But if you like busy, you’re probably drawn to Alisson and Allisson.
