I'm from New Zealand which is the only country that speaks Maori and Tane is pronounced TAH-nee.

Tane comes from the name Tanemahuta who is the caregiver of the forest. Tane is pronounced TAH-neh, but don't emphisize the the h at the end. Also Tangata means man which is a common Maori name.

I find pronunciation difficult. I only heard of this name today when I saw a boy in my son's grade 1 class with this name.

I know of a little boy with this name and he pronounces it rhyming with the word Sane.

I'm from New Zealand and as it says above, it is not pronounced TAH-nee. It is pronounced Tah-neh, the 'neh' should be pronounced as the same sound you make when you say 'net'.

Quit bastardising the Maori language. It's not pronounced TAH-nee, TAH-nay or Tahn-ay. It doesn't rhyme with sane either. It's tah-neh as those who know their Maori have already pointed out.

If I'm right, there was a New Zealand international rugby player called Tane Randall whose name was always pronounced by the TV and radio commentators to rhyme with 'main'.

Tane is also a Japanese name for girls, which means "seed". I am not sure how it is pronounced.

Tane is also an English surname derived from Cornish and Welsh that means "house" and pronounced TAYN that has been used as a first name for both males and females.

Unfortunately, it is also an obscene slang term for the female anatomy.

There are heaps of guys I know call Tane. Its pronounced Ta-neh. Theres a guy in my class who spell his Taine so everyone knows to pronounce it tayne. Rhyming with sane. But theres a Tane who pronounces his normally like Tah-neh. And another Tayne who spells his Tane. Pretty confusing but the teacher just asks how youd rather it. I wouldnt call my son this its too commom where I live. I also know another Taine.

My name is Tané and I have NEVER come across anyone else with that name. I use the Maori pronunciation of tah-neh it doesn't sound right any other way but it's not very popular in England.
