Dane is a more masculine Dana alternative, with added style edge. Dane is one of those names that's more popular than you think, in the Top 500 after ranking on the U.S. Top 1000 for nearly seventy years. It was first popularized via mid-century actor Dane Clark (born Bernard Zanville); actor and comedian Dane Cook gave it a more recent boost.

Dane is one of several rhyming cousins gaining in popularity--Zane, Thane, Cain/Kane--but not Wayne.

Dane also makes a great middle name, as evidenced by January Jones' use of it for son Xander Dane.
