    My name is Alison, but my nickname has been Ali (said like alley, not like Mohammed Ali) since a good friend started calling me that in 4th grade. i love that it’s short and cute with a wonderful meaning! 🙂 However, it often gets spelled wrong (as does Alison…) I’ve only met a couple of male Ali’s who of course, pronounced it the other way.
