  • "I am Dana Lynn, born in 1943. At that time, both Dana and Lynn were uncommon names for both boys and girls. When I graduated from high school, I received offers to join every branch of the US Military (no thank you). I was placed in a men's dormitory at my university (briefly!). A few years ago, a young couple were in line behind me, and they--especially she to him--were talking during our wait. It quickly became apparent that his name was Dana. Finally, I asked him if he had experienced strange reactions from strangers because of his name--reactions similar to those I had received when I was young. "Oh yes," he said. But I'm used to it because my dad's name is Leslie." Big smile from me as I said to him, "My mother's name is Leslie!" John's and Mary's don't have these kinds of experiences. BTW, I have always loved my name! Thank you, Leslie :-D" Sep. 11, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "My Congressman is Dana Rohrabacher. I wonder how many people have voted for him thinking he's a woman. I notice he's always "U.S. Representative" on the ballot instead of "U.S. Congressman" (probably taking advantage of the gender confusion)." Apr. 5, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am a male Dana. At 47 I get a kick out of nurses looking around the waiting room at a new doctoręs office for the woman they think Dana is, only to see me stand up. The look on their face is priceless. As a kid I did get picked on a lot with ęDana.. thatęs a girlęs nameę. My favorite thing that has happened due to my name is getting free, unsolicited samples of feminine hygiene products in the mail; great for polishing shoes I am told! As a side note: my dad wanted to name me Steven and my mom said ok as long as it could be spelled Stephen. My dad thought it was to close to Stephanie so they named me Dana instead. GO FIGURE!"

  • "My name is Dana I'm 47 and when I was a child I thought it was a girl's name but as an adult I see it is truly a unisex name and it has grown on me but earlier in life it wasn't nice for me." Mar. 5, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name's Dana and Im a girl, but My mechanic at works name is also Dana and he's a man. Ive probably met 3 other female Danas and 3 other male Danas in my lifetime that i can remember. All through schooling it was often mispronounced by substitute teachares as Danna. I live in Canada. I like my name, Ive never really disliked it. I pronounce it Day-nah" Aug. 16, 2006: Report as inappropriate
