  • "My name is Laney Claire and I?m going to be 13 in a few months. I love my name but I also sometimes wish that I wasn?t the only one named Laney. I guess that?s kinda weird but I?ve only met a good handful of other girls named Laney. My grandmas maiden name is Lane and my other grandmas name is Mary Claire. So I became Laney Claire. It?s not a nickname or anything. I don?t like it when people you it as a nickname because my name is so unique. Overall I love my name and might even name my own daughter Laney someday!:)" Jul. 19, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "Pronounced Lane-E, we have only met one other Laney in her twenties I would assume. We love our Laney. Born April 2015, the name Laney was literally a last minute decision. I think it is still pretty unique. We went through 8 months of disagreement, and finally I jokingly mentioned Laney Snow which my husband quickly rejected. Over the next three days, before delivery, the name apparently grew on my husband, as he kept throwing it back at me in sarcasm. Finally, I looked him in the eyes and said, "You like it!" His smile said it all. So when she came we did not even discuss it any further. She quickly became Laney Snow." Aug. 15, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "We named our daughter Laney Rae back in the 90s and she loves it! Laney was my mother's maiden name.
