Alison is a Baby Girl Name

Find out the meaning behind the name Alison.

The name Alison is a girl's name of Scottish origin. Alison has been long popular in Scotland and widely used here since the fifties; this more feminine medieval derivative of Alice had long surpassed the original in popularity. But now sounds a tad dated in the U.S., with Alice having leapfrogged back over Alison, Alicia and other variations. Allison is the only variant still ahead of the stylish Alice.
