- Personal experiences with the name Shane: | Edit
My name is Shane Marie and and I was born in 1978. I was teased a little bit in school because a boy in my class was also named Shane. As an adult, I get a lot of compliments on it and I honestly don't mind it anymore. I wished my parents had added a 'y' to the name 'Shayne' or an 'i' Shaine to make it feminine.
My name is Shane. I was named Shane because it means gift from god. My Mum miscarried my 8 other siblings. I was the only one to survive. Because my siblings where so far along they where given names. All starting with an A. Because of that a lot of my family call me Ānie.
