Personal experiences with the name Alane: | Edit

It's my name. I've met two others in the late 1970s and 80s: a Safeway cashier in Dallas, TX, and a McDonald's employee of the month somewhere between Phoenix, AZ and Albuquerque, NM. There are others online if you Google the name.

It's my name too, and it was my great grandmother's name. I really love it - it's relatively unique, but there's never a question of how to pronounce it.
