"My mom and dad named me Lanny after my grandfather and as a child I hated the name but I grew up to love it because of its uniqueness and the closest name someone has had that I have met is a women with the name lannie and I was also born in 2000" Apr. 13, 2015:
"My mom loved the name Lanny. She knew it because of the singer Lanny Ross. I was born in 1947. Lanny is my full name, not a nick-name. I was the only Lanny I knew until I dated a girl named Lannie (her real name as well). Typically people ask me what my name is "short for". I didn't like my name as a kid but I definitely grew into it and grew to like it quite a bit. I haven't met other Lannys in my adult life and that's fine by me." Dec. 24, 2014:
"My mother liked music and I was born in 1943 when Lanny Ross was popular. An Aunt even called me Lanny ross. Lanny is a nickname from my middle name that I got from my maternal grandfather. I meet other Lannys only occasionally, thought I've come across that name twice in the last few days." May. 7, 2008:
"This is the nick-name I chose for my son whose real name is Leonard. He absolutely loves his name - definitely the only one in school with it. He's 16 and when I tell him he can go by another nick-name (Len, Lenny, Leon, etc) he gets offended. I guess his great-grandmother was right for nick-naming her son (my son's grandfather) Lanny. Was named after Lanny Ross, a singer in the 40's. I actually got a 8x10 glossy of Lanny Ross for my son as you see - his last name is Ross too!" Feb. 29, 2008:
