It is a cool name.

I think this makes a better name for a girl.

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.

Shane is a really nice name for a boy. It sounds rugged and handsome and also kind and gentle.

I LOVE this name--it's rugged, handsome, and makes a good name for babies AND grampas.
-- DeGraffenLee  5/30/2006
Shane is an awesome name for a boy.

It's an okay name, not the best though.
-- corrielover  8/10/2006
This is one of my favourite boy's names, I love it. And who wouldn't love a name like this? Insane person.

In the Irish boy band, Westlife, there's a member called Shane Filan. He's the shorter dark haired one who does a lot of the song (Leadsinger).

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 love this name. It's the best ever. It's second on my list for what I'll name my child.

I think that Shane is a cool name but I know a kid a year younger than me and he is pure evil!

Shane is the best name in the whole entire world. I would definitely name my child this if I got the chance. Plus, there is a kid I love that is named Shane.

Shane's kinda androgynous. It works on a girl or a boy. I like it better for a boy though.
-- Ranee  8/20/2007
Shane is Sean's trashy, glue sniffing and deviant acquaintance. He's dumbed down but misunderstood. Definitely one of the uglier boys' names.

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.
-- Anonymous User  11/7/2007
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`.
-- The Commenter  11/9/2007
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?
-- Anonymous User  1/26/2008
I can't find anything exciting about this name. It's just so dull.
-- gio2475  6/15/2008
I love the name, but I like the spelling Cheyne. It looks better on paper, but still has the masculine sound to it.
-- alyssamorgan91  6/17/2008
Shane is a wonderful, wonderful book by Jack Schaefer. Did I mention it's wonderful?
-- welovejamesarness  6/29/2008
Shane is a main character in the Showtime TV series "The L-Word". She is one of the more androgynous characters.

Shane Riley is a character on the web show Dorm Life, played by Jack De Sena.
-- love.a.little  8/3/2009
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).
-- saranac2000  10/23/2009
This a very traditional name for a Southern boy.
-- ellamelusine  10/30/2009
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.

Shane Ryan Valdés is an indie filmmaker and photographer from Las Vegas, Nevada. He often works for the band Panic! at the Disco and has worked on videos for The Cab, Fall Out Boy, Norah Jones, and more. He is best known for his award winning short film "19 Miles To Vegas."
-- Sharley  12/18/2009
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.

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.

Even though I am fond of the name Sean, I think Shane is a much more updated, cooler version of Sean.
-- starz26  9/26/2010
Shane Dawson is a YouTube celebrity whose videos are hilarious!
-- Ryry1996  5/4/2011
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.

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.
