Hi does anyone know if Lana is a popular name? Also opinions on the name please. Thank you smile

It means wool in Italian. <unhelpful>

Would you pronounce it Lahna or Layna?

ARightOldPickle Mon 01-Dec-14 21:18:20

I only know of one - a 4 month old. Not sure if I like it or not, but if you like it go for it!

I like it but it's anal backwards... Might be awkward when playing the 'what is your name backwards' game. Shame as it's really pretty and not ordinary!

I quite like the Lahna pronunciation.

Yes I do too, I want a pretty name that isn't over popular. I may have to change the spelling though!

My friend has a Lanah. The h was tacked on due to the analysis problem shock

Anal not analysis!

Alisvolatpropiis Wed 03-Dec-14 07:46:52

I know an Alana and they shorten her name to Lana x

I like it but even if I didn't if you do, why not?

Wool in Spanish and Italian which puts me off (I'm a linguist) but think it's quite pretty. I prefer Alannah.

I like it but prefer Lena (layna).

Nice name.

How about Alana?

My cousin's name in Lana and I think it's beautiful! We're considering it for a middle name if we have a girl. I don't think it's particularly popular, but I know a few adults with the name, apart from my cousin.

I like it and just think of Lana del Rey.

moxon Thu 04-Dec-14 13:14:06

I know three (!). And nobody ever called the Lana I went to school with 'anal'. confused

I know an adult one, she is rather dull.
