Layne is pronounced LANE, as in "Down the Lane". Which is also one of the meanings. My cousin's name is Layne Weston.

The only Laynes I know are girls.

This is my dad's as well as my uncle's name. They are the only Layne's I know, and I think it suits them. The name seems different, like it's not the same name when we're talking to or about them.

What a beautiful name for a guy. It is delicate and masculine in the same time. Moreover, it reminds me of Layne Staley, one of the best singers of our time.

Can also be pronounced as Lay-nee. I have a friend who's legal name is this and pronounced this way.

Very nice name! I'm thinking about giving it as a middle name for my future son.

I love this name because of Layne Stanley.

I named my son Layne in 2003 after Layne Staley from Alice n Chains. We always call him Layney. It is uncommon and it suits him very well.

I have noticed more and more people considering Lane for a boy and the spelling Layne for a girl as if the 'Y' somehow feminizes it.

My name is Layne and I am a girl. I have met four people in 36 years that share my name spelled with a "y". Two were male and two were female and all pronounced it "lane" as if rhyming with train or rain. I believe the most common meaning for my name is "from the narrow road", which is also the definition for a lane you drive on.

I think this name is better on a girl, but it's nice either way.

I love everyone using this in honor of Layne Staley and would love to use it for a middle name someday.

"Parents... don't let your child be named Layne... Especially if it's a boy..."
I forget who sang it but it still rings true.

I can see this name more for a girl than a boy. A really nice middle name choice, as a first name I prefer it to be pronounced lay-nee.
