I have the following latex document and I want to include a section "List of Abbreviations" without a numbering. This should appear in the table of contents as well (it should look similar to the List of Figures and List of Tables sections). So far so good, I managed to do it with the \addcontentsline{toc}{section}{List of Abbreviations} command.

However, I still have a problem with \fancyhdr and the \leftmark option. It still lists CONTENTS in the header of the List of Abbreviations section. How can I fix this?

\documentclass[11pt, bibliography=totoc, twoside]{article}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage[onehalfspacing]{setspace}

\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{acronym}
\usepackage{geometry}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\hypersetup{colorlinks,linkcolor=black,urlcolor=blue,citecolor=blue}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\fancyhf{}
\fancyhead[LE]{\rightmark}
\fancyhead[RO]{\leftmark}
\fancyfoot[C]{\thepage}
\setlength{\headheight}{14pt}


\usepackage{blindtext}

\title{dummy}
\author{my name}
\date{December 2019}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\pagestyle{fancy}

\tableofcontents 
\newpage

\pagenumbering{Roman} 
\section*{List of Abbreviations}
\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{List of Abbreviations}
\begin{acronym}\itemsep0pt
\acro{ABC}{Alphabet}
\end{acronym}
\newpage

\listoffigures
\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{\listfigurename}

\subsection{subsection 2.2}
\blindtext[4]
\newpage

\section{Section 3}
\blindtext
\newpage


\end{document}

\section* does not write to the headers, you have to do that by hand. Add

\markboth{List of Abbreviations}{List of Abbreviations}
