Alannah is a very nice, not overly used name. With the popularity of Anna I am surprised it isn't used more often. I prefer the spelling of Alanna or Alana though.

I only like this spelling due to the Irish heritage of it.

My name is Alannah. I was named after the singer Alannah Myles (my mom was a big fan). I really like the name, and I've managed to get a lot of nicknames out of it. Lana, Ala, Ally, Anah. My only problem is that it gets pronounced a lot of different ways.

This is very pretty. I want to use it to honor someone named Alan. Although I don't think the two names are related, Alannah has Alan in it. But anyway, I love this name.

I like this spelling because I like the h at the end.

"Black velvet in that little boy's smiiiiile..."

God, I hated that song. Hate the name Alannah *because* of that song. It sounds trashy and desperate, like a 50 year old woman at the end of a bar who tries like hell to attract the men and be what she once was, not getting that her time is up. Uh-uh.

Alannah is the name of a cousin of mine. I do like it but I do find it a teeny bit snobbish.

This is my name. Numerous people misspell it or mistake it for Hannah. I don't think the name is particularly unique or special though. My mother named me after singer Alannah Myles. I shared this name with a few popular girls at my school (spelt Alana though) and I feel this name suits a girl who is upbeat and popular. I'm none of these ironically. I don't love my name, it's just not something I would choose for myself.
