However I do get teased by the backwards version of it or get often called lay-nuh when it's prounced la-nuh. But either way I love my name and I wouldn't rather have it any other way" Jul. 5, 2017:
"My name is Lana, pronounced Lawn-a (like the women third down from list of comments above). It's a short,soft and pretty name. People compliment me all the time saying it's a beautiful name and one not heard often. But so many people mispronounce it which totally takes the beauty away from it. And it drives me nuts!"
