Alison is a gender-neutral name of Scottish or German origin, meaning "noble" or "exalted". It is derived from the medieval French nickname for Alis, an old form of Alice, and is often used as a diminutive of Alice. The name was popular in England, Scotland, and France during the Middle Ages and was later revived in England in the 20th century via Scotland. While it is primarily considered a feminine name in the United States, Alison is a unisex given name in English-speaking countries and is used for both boys and girls.
