"My name is Dane, and I love it. I have yet to meet any other people named Dane out there, but I often have people tell me that they know someone named Dane. It is somewhat rare when I'm asked for my name for it to be understood the first time. When I repeat it, I usually just say, "Dane, like the Great Dane" :) I love my name!" Jul. 20, 2014:

"Hi there. Dane is just a perfect name for a man :)) Not only because it is my baby boy's name(aged 1 1/2) I fell in love with this name when I was 10, I guess,well..., after reading the Thorn Birds, of course :) But I admired the character a lot. Living in Italy does not really help with accurate spelling not to mention the pronunciation, however, people just love it and my son learnt to say it when he was 1." Oct. 21, 2009:
"When we neamed my son Dane in 2005 it was before I had heard of Dane Cook. We chose Dane because of my Danish heritage, we wanted something that sounded powerful and strong. I have yet to see anything customized with his name on it and we too often have to say his name 2 times or more and spell it despite the name is getting a little more popular and not so uncommon." Sep. 7, 2009:
"My son's name is Dane (13 months) at the time of this posting. I absolutely love his name and knew I would name him this from the time I was in high school. When I first told my husband the name he instantly loved it too. We have never met another Dane which I like. Most people I have to repeat his name atleast once. Or I get oh like Dane Cook, which kinda annoys me." Sep. 18, 2008:
