- (or Allison) So pretty! Just so pretty!
- It rolls off the tongue. It's very pleasant sounding. I have never known a Malcolm but it really catches me. It's not too harsh sounding or too soft, the sound of it is just perfectly in the middle.
- it happens to be my name, but I love it anyway! You have to go with the one 'l', though, because otherwise it looks like it's pronounced 'AHL-ih-sohn'. Traditional Irish spelling.
- My favorite name! It reminds me of windchimes. Whenever I hear it, I get a chill. It's so beautiful and it works for any age! I am going to name my daughter this. I just love it!
- my name. Ive always loved my own name, call me egotistical ;-) I like its strength and that it doesn't end in an "eee" sound (which I think makes girls sound like dolls) and its versatility - works for a child, teen, or adult; professional sounding, yet not standoffish.
Alison started out as a medieval Norman nickname for Alice. It was popular in Scotland and England as well, but stayed continuously popular in Scotland, whereas it died out and was recently resurrected in England. Because of this, it is often mistakenly thought to be a Scottish name. In Scotland, Alison was adopted and changed into the Gaelic forms Allsun and Allasan in addition to being used in its original Norman form. See Alice for meaning.
