I like the name Alanis because of how uncommon it is around where I live, and how different it is to it's original Alana. I also love Alanis Morissette's music, who is Canadian, so perhaps the name Alanis was derived from Alana in Canada. Don't take my word for it though, it's a suggestion.

I love this name. It sounds like something from LotR. Still, I would probably not name my kid this because she would be picked on, 'nuff said. Kids are brutal to each other sometimes.

Sound like a guys name to me.

This is a hideous name, so I wouldn't recommend anyone to name their daughter this in honor of Alanis Morissette. Besides, she might very well not end up liking her music.

I really like this name because it is unusual and sounds tranquil and beautiful. I Like the name Alana for a girl but feel it is more commonly used now, where as Alanis is unusual and feminine. I associate names with people and their personalities and Alanis Morisette is a beautiful, independent, feminine, talented and an individual. I think it would compliment any child, especially in teenage/young adult years.

I think that this is a beatiful name, it sounds like it came from old fashioned times and isn't used often but it could work in today's society as well.

Simply gorgeous! Much more pleasant to hear than "Alana."

I feel like this name should only be given to Alanis Morissette - I can't picture anyone else with it.

I absolutely love this name. It kind of reminds me of Atlantis. It's a great variant to Alana.

The name is usually pronounced a-LARN-is or a-LAYN-is, and not a-LAN-is, as stated in the description.

The origin of the name is germanic, and it means 'valuable' or 'precious'.

I did have a friend in Belgium, Flanders (AKA Dutch area) named Alanis. I find it a beautiful name to be honest.
