  1. We just like it’s German meaning

  2. My fiance chose the name after hearing it on a television show.

  3. I named Alana after my favorite uncle. His middle name was Alan.
    She doesn’t like that people pronounce it wrong.

  4. Alana is a very beautiful name and I knew that my daughter would be beautiful. Alana was the first name on Mommy and Daddy’s list of girl names.

  5. Alana just popped into my head one day and stuck

  6. It’s elegant for when she gets old. She can be an Allie till then. My hubby picked it. I wished we’d have spelled it differently however.

  7. It’s elegant for when she gets old. She can be an Allie till then. My hubby picked it.

  8. The name Alana means blessing so the name Alana Grace was perfect for our little miracle rainbow baby!

  9. I really enjoy the show Broad City and the character Ilana is a firecracker! I like that spirit and liked the name.
    I liked how the name looked with an “A” though . We do get people pronouncing it a-LANE-a though.
