Though the Golden Age of Hollywood ended more than 50 years ago, its glam image still lives on in names like Lana. It was made famous by Lana Turner, a buxom (a 1950s word) blonde actress who had a busy movie career and a busy personal life—the gossip reporters loved her! Today’s namesake is singer Lana Del Rey, who infuses the name with style and glam. Lana means “child,” but that doesn’t limit the name’s ultimate appeal.
