Comment left Nov 10, 2010: "My name is Shane. I was born and raised in Texas. The name just fits me. Kind, unpredictable, ruthless determination, daring, solid, devout, forgiving. As we say here in Texas: a real square shooter. It's unique enough to haunt ex girlfriend's dreams, and cozy to my soulmate. "Come back, Shane" and he never looks back. That's Shane."

When I try to check/search my name to the internet... they said that most of the people who use this name was a boy but I don't think so because here in my country (Philippines) Shane is a common name for a girl. I have a schoolmate too named Shane and a girl too, like me. Having this name make me feel unique. But sometimes people misspell my name like Shaine, Shayne and sometimes they call me Shan and its irritate me..." (Report as inappropriate)

Comment left Apr 09, 2010: "My name is Shane. Dad liked the old Alan Ladd movie. Was embarrassing at times when I was in elementary school, and the P.E. Teacher would yell "Shane come back, Shane please come back." Most of the other kids didn't know what he was saying that for. As for being called Shawn, That happens, However I am quick to correct the person on how to say it and they usually appreciate it. I celebrate my "Name Day" as they do in Greece on March 1st! So if you ever felt left out that you didn't get a "Name Day" Those named Shane have their very own "Name Day" now every March 1st!" (Report as inappropriate)
