Leanne is a pretty name and I like the fact that it's not too common. Leanne always stands out from the crowd more.

Leanne is a pretty name. Makes a great middle name too.

This is my name! I love everything about it except the fact that it can be spelt so many different ways and poeple often spell it wrong. I like this spelling the best though and i'm glad my parents gave me this name along with the middle name Christine. I think it's a pretty name, not too common and I'm proud of it.

I like Leane or Liane, only one n. I'm not really fond of double letters.

I agree with Leanne Christine about the hassles we Leanne's get over spelling our name. I've lived with this name for over 40 years now and it has had its "moments". Overall though, it's a good name and I only have two major complaints: It's an easy name to whine (try it -- esp. between the "e" and the "a") which is VERY annoying AND it's really a little girl's name. I'm more of a Eleanor now. You know what I mean? To Ranee: PLEASE if you choose this name, use the double "n". Do you know how many times I've been called, "lean"? Ok, it's better than "fat" but still. And just so you other Leanne's know, our name in French, when spoken, means "vine"! I live in France and whenever someone isn't quite getting my name, I mimic swinging on a vine and say, "Tarzan!" and they go, Oooh! Liane!" Oo la la! The bullying I got for having the name Leanne while growing up was, "pee-pan potty-head". Just FYI.

Masculine namesake names: Leon, Leo, Leonard, Lionel, Liam, Lyon (French form of Leon), Lee, Lenny.
-- leananshae  11/27/2007
Those names are not the masculine namesake names of Leanne. If someone were to name their daughter after a Leon, it would make more sense to go with a female variant of Leon such as Leona or Leontina. The same would go for the other names such as Liam, where they might use a name such as Billie or Mina.

Personally, I do not like the name Leanne. It brings negative connotations to my mind, acknowledging a know-it-all person and a mentally ill relative, each who bare the name.

A friend of mine spells it "Leighanne," which I always thought was pretty.

My friend's middle name is Lian pronounced like Leanne and her name is Chinese or Japanese, one or the other, meaning "Beautiful Oak Tree" or something like that.
-- baileymarissa  6/1/2009
I love how the name curls on your tongue when you say it.
-- Hushpuppy  6/15/2009
It's a very pretty name and I think it's prettier spelt with an "e".
-- CharlieRob  7/31/2009
Leanne is my middle name, it's pretty cute and I've never been bullied because of it.
-- Ravynne  1/31/2010
It's a really lovely name, but I know a girl called this who used to be my friend but then she suddenly turned on me. For those reasons, I can't use it. I'm so annoyed this name was ruined for me!
-- ListenToAsuka  5/7/2010
Ugh! I hate this name. It's the past generation's equivalent of Kayla - a name created by combining two popular name elements, yet considered a legit name all because of its wide usage.

Leanne only brings up an image of a catty, lower-class redneck woman who never graduated from university, has a bunch of grown-up kids all from different fathers and still works at McDonalds.

I think the name itself it "okay". It makes me think of the character Luanne from King of Hill so I have a negative connotation with it, as I always think of a stupid blonde girl.

Am I the only one who spells it "LeAnne"? I absolutely hate my name. I have always hated my name. And don't even get me started on the fact that I DO NOT have a middle name! I felt like a freak in school. As a little girl in the 70s surrounded by Amy's and Sarah's and Becky's, I had to endure spelling my name each and every time someone asked me what my name was. When I'd meet new kids at the playground, I'd tell them my name was Jessica Birch. I figured those were two words that everyone knew how to spell. Even today, when asked my name by the StarBucks Barista, I always say "April" - can't spell that wrong. I mean do you really have to know how to spell Leanne when all you're going to do is shout out my name to pick up my drink? Who cares how you spell it, just so you know how to pronounce it! My mother thought she actually created the name. Well, the oldest Leanne I've ever met was in her 70s, so I guess the joke's on her... but I'm not bitter ;) When I got into the working world, I promptly dropped the capital A in the middle of my name - it just confused people. They would spell it "Le Anne" - do you see a space in my name when I sign my emails "LeAnne"? And then there's the odd junk mail I'd receive with my name simply spelled "Le". Please. Stop the madness. At least all that stopped when I dropped the capital A and now use "Leanne". Except, sometimes people called me "lean" - can't blame them really, Jeanne is spelled the same as Leanne but pronounced differently. Okay, I feel better now after venting about all of this. Thank you for listening :)
