Classic, lovely name. It is not so popular now so I think it would be a perfect gorgeous name for a daughter. I think of a girl with untamed hair and bare feet running around in a field in the 80s. Very specific, but it's personal

Hated being named Leanne as a kid, as I was the only person I knew with the name. However, in adult life it is great, other than the misspelling. It’s nice not having a common name. Personally I pronounce my name more like “LAY-Ann” as I don’t think it’s the same as “LEE-ann” there’s no double e in leanne and it should not be confused.
