  • "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: Report as inappropriate

  • "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: Report as inappropriate
