I do prefer the Diane spelling, and also love Diana, but the review of this lovely name is very harsh. It would make a beautiful, unusual but familiar, choice, for a modern baby girl. A Dianne or Diane would stand out, in a good way, in a classroom full of girls called Madison, Isabella, Mia, etc.

I think Dianne/Diane is now a fresh choice. A timeless, centuries-old name, it connotes
classicism, royalty, strength, and beauty. Dianne is the preferred spelling, as
the double "n" makes more sense for the English pronunciation, it has
a softer look, and it fully contains another lovely name, Anne.
