second guessing baby's name- votes?

After naming our daughter Addison Ann I'm having second thoughts about whether it fits.  We debated names throughout the pregnancy, never finally agreeing on one. My husband wanted to see her before he decided.  When Grandma arrived the day before she was born she suggested Addison because she sat next to one on the plane. I didn't think it fit, but while I was in labor my husband decided he liked that name. After discussing it the first day we said we would decide the second...when he came back to the hospital the second morning I gave my suggestion and he said our 6 year old daughter really liked Addison (they had discussed the list over breakfast) so we went with Addison.  Now I want to change it but he still isn't liking the names I originally wanted, so I'm thinking Madison since it wouldn't be too hard for everyone to switch. But is it worth changing when it's that close? I think Madison is a bit more traditional, less trendy... any votes between Addison & Madison?

Addison is perfect - my neice is Addison - just spelled differently and we all call her Addy - so it is really close to Maddy - I second guessed Olivia's name as well a couple days after she was born - now we are at 4 weeks and she has grown into her name and it has grown on me.... I could not imagine her being named anything other than Olivia.

It's really up to your thoughts, if you are leaning towards another name I say go for it.  Worst case scenario-you change her name to Madison and her nickname becomes Addison later.  :)
