  1. We had a short list of names throughout most of the pregnancy, and it included Lane as one of the top contenders. I always thought Laney would be a great nickname for Lane, but then when she was born, my husband suggested that just be her actual name. It means “torch” or “bright light,” which also feels pretty accurate for a baby conceived ans born in the craziness of 2020.

  2. We chose the name Laney because of its meaning of light, bright, and pathway. We pray that our daughter is a bright light to others, a leader and sets an example for others. Her middle name is Grace which we have been given by our Lord and Savior and we are so thankful for.
