When I hear Allie I picture a red-headed little boy due to the description of Holden Caulfield's younger brother, Allie, in The Catcher in The Rye.

Jane Curtain played Allison "Allie" Lowell in the '80's T.V. show "Kate and Allie."

I love Allie especially as a nickname for Allison. I also like it as a nickname for Aaliyah.

Allie Pleiter is a Christian author. But I believe that Allie is short for Alyce in her case, not Allison.

Famous Bearer: fictional character Allie Hamilton/Nelsen, of Nicholas Sparks' award-winning novel "The Notebook". In the 2004 film, Allie (played by actress Rachel McAdams) is the estranged lover of Noah Calhoun (played by actor Ryan Gosling).

I do not like the spelling of this name. I like it ALLY or ALLEY.

I love the name Allie, but as a real name not a nickname. I would name my daughter Allie, not Allison, etc.

My name is Allie. It's not short for anything though, it is just Allie. I think it's a pretty good name. It can get annoying because of the many different spellings and people who think your name is Alison when it's not. Also, I've never been able to find a trinket (like a mug you buy at a gift shop) with my name on it, it's always Alison or something. Oh well. :)

A famous bearer is actress Allie DiMeco. She plays Rosalina in The Naked Brothers Band on Nickelodeon.

I know an Allie but it is not short for Alison like most people presume, it is short for Alexandra. I have not heard of any Alison's being shortened to Allie but some of my other friends called Alexandra shorten it to this or Ali. I think that it is prettier than Alex because that sounds quite masculine but this is more feminine!

My name is Alexandra, but everyone calls me Allie. I love the name, only it's becoming way too popular for my liking. Every person I have ever met assumes that Allie is short for Alison and that it's spelled Ali. It gets quite annoying sometimes. But overall, it's a very lovely name.

Allie Grant has guest starred as the crazy `Agnes` in `The Suite Life Of Zack And Cody`.

Allie is the name of Holden Caulfield's younger brother in the popular novel "The Catcher in the Rye." It was popular in the U.S. before the 1920's for males, probably as a nickname for Alexander, Albert, or any number of Al- names.

I don't like any forms of 'Allison' or any of the 'Allie's' but if I had to pick one, I'd pick this one.

I use it as a nickname for Alexandra.

This is what I go by, even though it's short for Allison, and I think it's ok. AND NO ONE CAN EVER SPELL IT! It's always Ali or Alli or Ally or something along those lines. Generally, if you call me Allison, I attack you. It's Allie, not Allison, or Alyson, or Alison. ALLIE!

Cute. Only as a nickname though.
Chrila96  11/29/2010
I know three Allies, yet none of them spell it "Allie." There's Alle (short for Alessandra), Alli (short for Allison) and then Alley (who's just Alley.) I think "Allie" is over used, even as a nickname. Don't call your kids this. Think of something more original.

Cute. But I prefer it as a nickname not as a full name.

I like Eilla, which is Allie backwards. I only like this spelling.
SEC908  12/25/2012
That's one of the names my parents considered for me, as a full name. I wouldn't mind to be named Allie at all. I love it as short for Alexandra and Alexandria. It's common yet unusual for Alex- names.

My name is Alma, but back when I was about 5 or 6 I hated my name, and everybody called me Allie (though I've since grown to love my name, so nobody calls me Allie anymore). I know two other Allie's: one is short for Alexandra, and the other for Amanda.
Overall, while I do think it makes a cute nickname, I don't think Allie is substantial enough to be a full name.

Allie is way overused in my opinion.
lilpimpteller  6/13/2015
My name is Alle, a very rare spelling of it and apparently very hard way of saying it but I think I'm going to change it to Alleigh, if I already have a difficult name to say why not have fun with it?

Ew, I hate this name. Something about it just is like... No, lol. Allie & Allison are just gross in my opinion. Thankful that that isn't my name.
