Meaning:path, roadway
“I took the lane less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” Okay, so it’s not exactly the line Robert Frost wrote in his classic poem, “The Road Not Taken.” But if you name your son or daughter Lane, which has English, French, and Irish roots, maybe they’ll develop a curiosity and about the world a sense of adventure. If you prefer a name with more punch, use Lane as a nickname, and put Delaney on the birth certificate.
