    Hubby insists that if we have a girl it has to be called Lana, he's had this name stuck in his head for years and won't budge. Although it wouldn't be my first choice I do quite like it and it's a bit unusual but not too wierd.

    The names I like are things like Evelyn, Amelia and Isabel so I was wondering if anyone could think of ways to extend the name Lana to make other names but still keep the 'lana' bit as a nickname (obs there's Alana but was looking for more ideas)

    Thank you x

    Do you mean more sylabyles or more letters? You could make it Lannah (like hannah) xxx

    More syllables. Hubby want to spell Lana as Larna which i have already vetoed, told him he can only have that name if it's spelt my way 'Lana' but I think he thinks he's going to convince me! I do like Lana and we will probably have that name, just wondered what else we could do with it.

    Alana is the only one i can think of but i do like the idea of a double barrelled name as suggested above.

    I like Lanabelle but my sister is called Isabel so it's abit too similar. Lilana is really pretty, will try it out on hubby.

    Thank you for all the ideas :flower:
