I am a fellow Shane. As people have stated I am that jock from high school with green eyes and a leather jacket. I am actually from Ireland lol. Oh, did I forget to mention I have a motorbike? I am also kind and rugged.

For the few females on here with that name I'm glad it didn't negatively affect you. I personally would NEVER name a baby girl that. Even with a Y in the middle it's still MASCULINE and not appropriate for women in my opinion. Some people who are females have not done so well with that name. It is just a variation of the name John so remember you'd be calling your daughter John which is a given MASCULINE NAME. Be mindful of that- your daughter may not like it so much later in life! If they don't they would have a right to change it as an adult!

I would hate to see Shane become popular for a girl, like Riley for example. Luckily it seems like it's still quite uncommon as a female name. This is one of my favorite names for a boy and I plan on using it in the future.

Shane is a very handsome name for a guy! There is just this sexy quality attached to it. It also sounds practical and will age well with the individual.
Shay would be an excellent nickname, or spelled as Shaye or Shae.

I think Shane sounds like a bad boy name, it makes me think of leather jackets... and green eyes but I think that's the Irish sound to it talking. But I like that it doesn't seem to have a clear idea on what a person named Shane would be like. As opposed to a name like Annie or James.

I actually hated this name for a long time because I'm a girl and my parents named me Shane, but it grew on me. I like it now for a girl's name. I have actually never gotten comments on it being a boys name, and the most I got bullied for was the fact that my name sounded similar to "Shame". I think it's an excellent and beautiful girls name.

I love the name Shane. It's always been my favorite male name. But I think it'd be really cool for a female name too. For a female I'd spell it "Shayne." Actually, I think I like it more for a female name now that I think about it.

Even though I am fond of the name Sean, I think Shane is a much more updated, cooler version of Sean.

This can be a girls name too as in the Mary - Kate and Ashley Olsen film 'The Challenge' Mary - Kate's character was called Shane.

Shane just sounds ugly to hear. Sean is much more of a 'handsome' name. When I hear Shane, I think of a weedy guy in glasses dancing around in his undies listening to a James bond theme tune and collecting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cards. No offence, but it's the image I think of when I hear Shane.

To me, Shane is one of those names that is very cute on a little boy but then, as that boy becomes a man, doesn't grow up with him.

Although I understand 'Shayne' is far less common as a female name, it bothers me that including the 'y' in the middle of it does not seem to feminize it at all. Being a woman and having grown up with this name, and after having been told by my parents that they added the 'y' specifically to make it more feminine, I have a hard time seeing boys and men spell their names this way. The choice of my name actually came from "Shane Gould", a female Australian swimmer and I agree that the 'y' makes it seem like a more female name (even more so when paired with my middle name, which is Elizabeth).

I love the name, but I like the spelling Cheyne. It looks better on paper, but still has the masculine sound to it.

I can't find anything exciting about this name. It's just so dull.

Yup, the skanky and trashy version of Sean. I'm horrified people use this on girls. You know it's just another form of John, right?

Funny, because this is my middle name as well. I think `Shane` makes a pretty cool name [ first or middle ] for a girl, because it's not common like Emily, Ava, Rose, or Marie. If you like `Shane` [ for a girl ] but are afraid your daughter would be mistaken for a boy, add a Y. Then it would be `Shayne`.

This is my middle name, and as a girl I have to say it is pretty awesome because no one else has it. But I would never name my daughter this as a first name.

Shane is Sean's trashy, glue sniffing and deviant acquaintance. He's dumbed down but misunderstood. Definitely one of the uglier boys' names.

Shane's kinda androgynous. It works on a girl or a boy. I like it better for a boy though.

I used to love this name. Now I work with a highly annoying person named Shane. It's still a really cool name--but I would never use it now.

I think Shane is a great boy's name as it always seems to sound more enthusiastic than some other names. One of my best friends, who I've known since the age of four, is called Shane, and his name can be said in so many different tones and still sound good.
