Obviously it does. This is at lueast, what the Dictionary of American Family Names, Oxford University Press says:
Well, you will find a lot of different surnames with the same meaning in one culture:
From the same word: Koller and Kähler (coal burner)
From different words meaning the same: Fiedler and Geiger (Fiddler)
In the case of Addison I think it's the Nickname Addie that created the variant.
Could this be an explanation?
