    What are your other girls names? If they are very feminine and/ or traditional, then Mattison will really standout as different. A Mattison with sisters Elizabeth and Isabelle is very different than Mattison with sisters Piper and Sloane.

    Also, if you love Mattie why not name her that or a hyphenated version of that? Mattie-Rose, Mattie-Jane, etc.
    I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.

    I'm afraid I've still not come to terms with people using "-son" names on girls. I mean, of course at the end of the day it's your choice but as for my opinion I don't like it.

    Just another note : Mattison makes me think of Carrie Mathison in Homeland. For me that's a good thing because I like her character, so it does redeem the name a bit in my eyes But it's just something to be aware of, I mean I understand if not everyone likes her, she is mentally unbalanced and has her own set of morals.

    We have two unisex names for our other girls Morgan and Allison. Who goes by Allie. I know Mattison doesn't sound great as a sibling set but she won't be the odd one out with a masculine name. I think the meaning is the most important thing. We will give her a girly middle name and if she hates it she can go by that. I've never seen homeland although its high on my list thanks everyone for your advice. I was half expecting a lynch mob for my name choice. I also love that Matthew/Mattison means gift from god since she was quite the surprise baby

    In response to some comments
    Not having another baby so there will be no sons to give this name,( dear god isn't 3 girls enough)
    And most of the Matt girl names except for Matilda and Matea are harder to pronounce.
    I've not given up on a change to Matilda. We will see.
