I first heard the name from Billy Zane in the show Twin Peaks in the early 90's...I wasn't crazy about him personally but I thought his name was strong, nobody messes with a Zane in the playground (coincidentally my boy is in the 90th percentile for height and weight). Also, my friend's brother is named Zane, I have never met him but he is some sort of secret agent with the army, that's cool too. No nicknames can be made out of it, he is what he is, he's Zane."

  • "Zane has been a GREAT name to me over the past 35 years. Because the name is unique, we Zanes have a bond when we meet one another. I've met two or three dozen other Zanes throughout my travels, the last one a waiter in a restaurant who didn't believe I was a Zane because he had only heard of one other and hadn't met one personally, so I had to show him my ID : ). My son is now Zane." Jun. 9, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Zane. I have only met one other man who had the name, so it is still uncommon.

We chose it because we thought it sounded strong, pretty cool, and wanted something kind of unusual to go with our very common last name. A few years went by before we met another, but now it's not so rare. And, like several other names that used to be exclusively boys' names, we've now heard of a couple girls with it, though spelled differently. We love the name. (I joked to my husband, while pregnant with our daughter, that maybe we should name her Zana.) Our son has always liked his name. And I think people tend to remember him partly because of it!"

A Hebrew man heard me calling him one day in a park and told me that it is a Hebrew name and it means "A Gift from God" and as far as I am concerned he is a gift from God to me. When he was younger he stopped liking it because it was so easy to rhyme and other kids used to make up sill rhymes so for a while he called himself Paul because it was plain and simple. However he is now a grown man and loves his name and I am proud of that." Aug. 14, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Double thumbs up!! Zane is my son's name. He is a leader of the pack. It is like instant "cool" for him. We were at the library the other day and some little girls (he is 9) came up behind us whispering, "thats Zane!!" Like he is famous or something. Cracks me up, but I think the name has a lot to do with it. By the way, can totally relate to the guy that posted on Feb 23, 2006, sometimes it is hard for people to understand what the name is, especially if you say "is" right before it. Like "this is Zane.." the two Z sounds kind of blurr together." Jul. 16, 2008: Report as inappropriate

I think it is a strong, masculine sounding name. Have never heard it as a girls name before though!
