Sloane is a sleek, sophisticated surname name that has gradually morphed over to the girls' side. It entered the Top 1000 girls’ names in 2008 and resides at Number 267 in the 2016 list. Sloane is definitely a name that's going to continue to rise. Spelled without the final "e," Sloan joined Sloane in the Top 1000 for the first time in 2011.

Sloane has been the name of girlfriend characters in Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Entourage, and it is currently the character played by Olivia Munn on The Newsroom. Sloane Crosley is a bestselling author, and comedian Rob Corddry named his daughter Sloane Sullivan.

The association with London's Sloane Square and the upscale clique of Sloane Rangers, who have included Princesses Di and Kate, gives it some extra panache.
