Baby Name: Lana
The short form of Alana or the feminine form of Alan. Influenced by actress Lana Turner, born Julia Jean Mildred Frances Turner, who was discovered at the age of 16 in a cafe by the publisher of the "Hollywood Reporter." She eventually became a well-known star and pin up girl during the 1940s and 1950s. The name peaked on the popularity chart in 1948 and appears to be making a comeback, possibly because of its stylish "a" ending.
