    Lane?

    What are you opinions on the name Lane for a boy?

    I think of Lane Price from the series Mad Men. I quite liked his character (even though he tragically killed himself).

    That's the only association I have with the name. I think it has a tendency to sound a little feminine, so I would pair it with a traditionally masculine middle name.

    My roommate's boyfriend is named Lane! It isn't feminine at all. I like it.

    Matilda Sailor or Faye Matilda | Sylvie Wren or Simon Adler | Alice Violetta or Atlas Dov | Julian 'Jules' River or Juniper 'Joon' Lovelace | Roscoe Fox or Marlowe Fritz | Jane Lucinda or Lucien Wilde | Louisa Valor or Eloise March | Ivan Elliot or Iris Cordelia | August Jack or Jasper Hale | Dashiell Jude or Judah Reeve | Thea Marina or Marigold 'Maggie' Wynn | Finnegan Wallace or Felix Raphael

    Just a grad student dreaming ahead...

    I always think girl, because Lois Lane. It could easily work as a nickname for a boy, I think, but I'm not sure what boy's name would give you Lane.
    I’m just trying to behave as I think a friend should behave. Granted, I haven’t had much practice.

    I love it. I may be biased as my hubby's name is Lane ( spelt Layne though). To me its very flattering. Hubby is a very outdoorsy type guy and his parents actually got the name out of a hunting magazine! So to me it is not feminine at all if that is your worry. His middle name is Wesley and I think it flows very nicely.
