So we've landed on...

[name]Lane[/name]! We are very early in our pregnancy (6 weeks) but I have loved this name for years. And since it’s unisex, we decided to use it for a girl or a boy. DH isn’t 100% set on it for a girl, but he has awhile to warm up to it!

We think we’re going with:

[name]Lane[/name] [name]Neil[/name] for a boy

[name]Lane[/name] [name]Fiona[/name] for a girl


[name]Lane[/name] [name]Neil[/name]: When I say [name]Lane[/name] [name]Neil[/name] out loud, the N in [name]Lane[/name] blends with the N in [name]Neil[/name], and I hear [name]Lane[/name] Eel or [name]Lay[/name] [name]Neil[/name].

I think [name]Lane[/name] MacNeil would perhaps be a great alternative to [name]Lane[/name] [name]Neil[/name].

[name]Lane[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Harrison[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Maxfield[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] MacNeil
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Rafferty[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Samuel[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]William[/name]

[name]Lane[/name] [name]Fiona[/name]: I think [name]Fiona[/name] is absolutely gorgeous, but something about the F after [name]Lane[/name] doesn’t sound that great to me. Hmm…It’s probably just me. :slight_smile:

[name]Lane[/name] [name]Alexandra[/name] (popular…)
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Louisa[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Marielle[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Miranda[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] (very popular, though)
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Victoria[/name]

I think [name]Lane[/name] sounds best followed by a longer middle name, with at least three syllables.

Best wishes to you! :slight_smile:

I agree with [name]Jill[/name] about [name]Lane[/name] [name]Neil[/name] although I love the name [name]Neil[/name] a lot. [name]Lane[/name] MacNeil is a great idea!
Also especially love [name]Jill[/name]'s ideas of:
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Maxfield[/name]

I also agree with [name]Jill[/name] about [name]Lane[/name] [name]Fiona[/name]. Especially love on her list:
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Alexandra[/name] (popular…)
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] (very popular, though)
Since [name]Lane[/name] is an unusual first name, I think you can get away with a popular middle name.

More ideas. I am going to put stars next to the ones that I think are really good:
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Augustine[/name]*
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Barnaby[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Everett[/name]*
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Horatio[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Marcello[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Oliver[/name]*
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Rodrigo[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name]*
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Teodoro[/name]

[name]Lane[/name] [name]Augustina[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Catriona[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Clementina[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Carolina[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]*
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Henrietta[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Hermione[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Isabella[/name]*
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Josephina[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Olivetta[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Penelope[/name]* - this is my fave on my list. Makes me think of the song “[name]Penny[/name] [name]Lane[/name]”
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Rowena[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Tereza[/name]
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Viviana[/name]*
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Violet[/name]

I think that lane [name]Neil[/name] does need something else it just doesn’t seem finished to me.
I really like [name]Lane[/name] [name]Fiona[/name] but I’m sorry to say that after all of the Shrek movies I go right to thinking of [name]Fiona[/name] as an ogre. Sorry!

Maybe your husband would like the nn [name]Laney[/name] better for a girl. Name her [name]Lane[/name] and call her [name]Laney[/name]? I think [name]Laney[/name] is darling! Agree with the others on the middle names … tweak them a bit and you’ll have a winner!
