"My name is Alanna Mae. I didn't like it growing up because as a kid you want to be the one with your name on pencils or key chains and such. But now I love it because there isn't a lot of Alanna's in my area and it's unique I think. My father was from Ireland so I love the irish roots of the name. My childhood nickname is Lannie, or Lannie Pannie :) I Love them :) other nicknames from friends are Alabama, or Atlanta lol
I have had many spelling errors. Always spelled with one N or they add a H at the end. Or double the L. I get it pronounced Aluana or Alaina... hate those... I pronounce mine A-Lan-na :)" Dec. 15, 2016:
"My name is Alanna when I was little I used to think I was the only person named Alanna cause I never met anyone named Alanna before and I still never had" Mar. 31, 2012:
"Well, thats my name also, but I pronounce it Alaina, with a long "a". I love it because I have yet to find someone else that spells and pronounces their name like mine. And not many people can figure out my last name either, its Maniscalco...so allll the time ever since I was in kindergarten I had to correct the people that really just cant figure out how to pronounce it the right way..but I still love my name!!!"

"Yes, I have this name which I love. My mother picked this out of all the names in a baby name book (1948). I like the Celtic connection. Last time I met someone with this name was May 2006 in Tasmania. This Alanna was part of a rainforest "squat" and working at the back of a pirate ship built across a logging road to prevent the cutting of the rain forest. She was there doing art work. I founded Earth Rights Institute, www.earthrights.net,and am working on a United Nations project for economic justice/land rights/tax reform to eradicate poverty worldwide. Blessings all!"

"I can see that Alanna has gained popularity since we named our older daughter in 1986. Actually, Alanna is (was) the name of an Irish steak sauce we bought when I was pregnant. We read on the back label that Alanna means "beautiful," so we thought that would be the perfect name for our little girl. Everyone has a good laugh when they hear of how we came up with Alanna's name. Sometimes people ask if Alanna's name is Hawaiian, and I believe there is a Hawaiian meaning, Either way, it's a beautiful name! Pronounced: u-lon-nu" Jan. 6, 2008:
