I think that this is a beautiful name for a little (or older) girl. It is simple and sweet.

I prefer the spelling of LAYNE, it's a great name for a boy, childish sounding. I have a cousin named Layne Weston.

My name is Lane, and I am a girl. I totally think that it is a good name for both boys or girls, and I hate the nickname Lanie. Just don't.

Also if you're an American, keep in mind that certain unsavory slang terms sound a lot like Lane, and you wouldn't want your kid to be too angry with you on the first day of high school.

I think it's an interesting name for a boy or girl.

I like this name as a middle name for Gracie. I think this is a sweet name, but I have never met a girl with the name. My daughter has a cousin named Lane (a boy). But I like it for a girl just as well.

It makes me think of Penny Lane, a Beatles song.

It's quite plain, but it's not a weird noun to use as a name. I think it works for both sexes.

There's a really weird lady I work with who I couldn't tell if she was a man or a woman for a while. It's weird when people like that have gender neutral names. Other than that I do like this name. I think it sounds nice for either girls or boys.

I really like this name for both genders. But if I were to name a child this, I would definitely call them by the nickname Laney (boy) / Lainie (girl). Also, the meaning of the name is pretty boring, but at least the name sounds good.

This name is just weird!

I first saw Lane being used as a female name on the Gilmore Girls, though more recently it's the name of an English male character on Mad Men, Lane Pryce.

It's a bit odd, at first, but it's grown on me. I like it!

I think Lane is actually better on a girl, and it would age well. It's cute, but not too childish. Good for a boy, too.

Actually, it sounds really childish on a girl. Are you kidding?! Leave boys names to boys, for god's sakes! This is an ok name for boys, I think it would age well, but it seems more like a word than a name.

I believe there is a company called Lane Bryant, presumably named after a person.

The name Lane was given to 75 baby girls born in the US in 2012. I'm glad it's not very popular for girls, it sounds completely masculine to me.

I don't think this name is tacky, or overused, I just think its rather boring. Plain. Nothing special about it. But its simple, I suppose. Easy to remember.

Lane Frost was a professional bull rider from America. He died young in 1989, and the movie of his life was called "Eight Seconds". He died in the arena while fighting a bull in Cheyenne. I love the name.

I've always found the name Lane cute and unique for a guy. :3.
