Comments for THANE:

I have loved this name ever since I read 'Roses for Mama' by Janette Oke. That is actually where I first heard the name, and then I met someone whose little brother has the name!

I do love this name, but I worry that it's a little pretentious. Since it's a title, it's similar to naming your son Laird, Marquis, or Prince.

I can't hear this name without thinking of Macbeth. "All hail, Macbeth, hail to thee, thane of Glamis! All hail, Macbeth, hail to thee, thane of Cawdor! All hail, Macbeth, thou shalt be king hereafter!"

I had exactly the same thought as Ailis. It makes me think of Macbeth.

This is a very unusual name. I think I like it though.

I think Thane is a precious name, though I prefer it as a nickname for Nathaniel.

I've heard it spelled as Thain, but then I found out that it was a Lord of the Rings reference. Apparently Pippin became Thain Peregrin Took when he went back to the Shire and grew up. Not sure which spelling I prefer, but I like the name.
