Over the last several decades and now on the threshold of the 21st century, we can see that the name Lane has achieved a position of moderate use in the United States. This name is neither masculine nor feminine in particular so it seems to work in any gender. However, it is much more popular for boys and is therefore considered more of a masculine name. As a parent, there is something you should consider when selecting this name: it's ripe for schoolyard intimidation, such as "Scanty Lane" or "Insane Lane." This is a name that over time grows on you, but there is something about it that lacks dynamism and substantial interest, though it has a certain “preppy” quality.
