    Honouring an Allan?

    I'm not pregnant or trying to conceive, just planning for the future. My father is called Allan and I haven't been able to fit it into any of my favourite boys name combinations so I thought I would use the girl version Alana. My only problem is if I am honouring an Allan should I spell Alana with two L's? It would most likely be a middle name. Also what is you favourite spelling of Alana?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd use Alana with one L, it's easier to pronounce in my opinion. But that might not matter much for a middle name!

    Even though I'm not usually a fan, I don't have a problem spelling it Allana, especially since it's just the middle name. Personally though, I prefer Alana.

    Cora . Louisa . Lydia . Mary

    Alana and Allana would be pronounced the same.

    Allana looks as though it should.be pronounced allan-uh. I'd go with Alana.
    I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.

    My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.
