I named my baby boy "Zane" born this September. I chose Zane because I am a teacher and It's difficult not to associate other kids with common names. I first heard the name from Billy Zane in the'show Twin Peaks in the early 90's...I wasn't crazy about him personally but I thought his name was strong, nobody messes with a Zane in the playground (coincidentally my boy is in the 90th percentile for height and weight). Also, my friend's brother is named Zane, I have never met him but he is some sort of secret agent with the army, that's cool too. No nicknames can be made out of it, he is what he is, he's Zane.

My name is Zane. I have only met one other man who had the name, so it is still uncommon. One the the best aspects of the name is that when my name is called, even in a noisy crowd, it cuts right through the noise and your attention snaps to it. Much more so than other names like John or whatever.

Due with my first child on Monday. It's a boy and we are naming him Zane. It's masculine, cool, and unique but not too crazy or made-up sounding. I can't wait to meet my ZANE! :)

Double thumbs up!! Zane is my son's name. He is a leader of the pack. It is like instant "cool" for him. We were at the library the other day and some little girls (he is 9) came up behind us whispering, "thats Zane!!" Like he is famous or something. Cracks me up, but I think the name has a lot to do with it. By the way, can'totally relate to the guy that posted on Feb 23, 2018, sometimes it is hard for people to understand what the name is, especially if you say "is" right before it. Like "this is Zane.." the two Z sounds kind of blurr together.

My one-year-old's name is Zane. We've gotten mostly positive comments on it. As for the person's question above, Zane Grey was the author, not a character. His "Riders of the Purple Sage" is excellent.

It's my son's name. he's two. Everyone seems to know someone or have heard of someone named Zane but we've never met another one yet. I'm really happy with the name and I hope he likes it too.

Our son is named Zane. I don't see it as a western name unless you only associate it with the author. It is a strong, sturdy, unique, authentic, name. People respond well to it.

5/1/2022 12:07:30 AM

Our son was born 8/8/08 and we named him Zane. We love the name! It is very strong and evokes images of the west and of someone who is a leader, not a follower. It is an unusual name, but Isn't out there or wierd. Our 18-month-old is named Wyatt and we chose his name for the'same reasons.

4/24/2022 12:34:30 PM

We named our son Zane, he is now three and we have gotten lots of positive comments. It's not a very common name, but most people have heard of it and everyone remembers it. I love this name.

My youngest son born 14.10.06 is named Zane. We all love this name because It's still unusual in the UK. I think of people called Zane as creative and strong... I chose the name after a character called Zane in a UK Police drama called 'The Bill'. Fab name, Zane, no regrets with this choice! Zane's older'siblings are named Hollie and Jaden....

I like my name. because I, Zane MS, am superior =) i think my name is great. infact, i could not imagine my life with a different name. It just wouldn't be the'same. I could no longer be referred to as 'Lord Zane' , or, 'The Zane Supremacy'. THANKS MUM!

My son was born last New Year's Eve, and we named him Zane. Our last name is very common, so we wanted one that was unique (but not weird). The older he gets, the more It'suits him.

11/10/2021 3:18:18 AM

My son's name is Zane, he was born in 2018 and It's still my favourite boys name now. He always gets told he has a cool name as It's still uncommon here in the UK - trouble is I am now trying to find a boys name that will go with it for a sibling due in a few months. It's an impossible task!!

11/1/2021 5:05:24 PM

My husband and I named our son Zane in 1999 because we loved the name. He is now 29 years old and is one of the finest people we know. A true child of GOD.

Great name. My son was born on 6th February 1995 and we called him Zane Aaron. A Hebrew man heard me calling him one day in a park and told me that it is a Hebrew name and it means "A Gift from God" and as far as I am concerned he is a gift from God to me. When he was younger he'stopped liking it because it was so easy to rhyme and other kids used to make up sill rhymes so for a while he called himself Paul because it was plain and simple. However he is now a grown man and loves his name and I am proud of that.

Kayne, Wayne, Shane, Dane, Stan, Ian....... Hussein! I have a strong Australian accent so you can see how people can mishear me when I tell them over and over... ZANE - ZANE - ZANE

Our 2nd son was born on 5-10-08. We named him Zane Garrett. This is the only name we could agree on. i've gotten lots of positive comments on it! I so have trouble with people understanding what it is. They will say "what" and I'll say "It's Zane" and the two s sounds to blend together'sometimes. But, I love the name! It's cowboy.

8/10/2021 1:34:48 AM

My name is Zane and i've never met another one but I'm sure they're out there. I think It's a pretty good name.
