Maybe it’s because the “Z” is in your face or because it has an appealing one-syllable simplicity. Whatever the reason, you’ll always notice Zane and his bros Zain and Zayn. Thanks to author Zane Grey, who made cowboy lit fly off the shelves in the early 20th century, this Hebrew name became huge in the US. Guys with this masculine name also tend to have an independent streak, as proved by Zayn Malik, who left the British boy band One Direction in 2015 to start a solo career. With a meaning of "God is gracious," baby will make sure to be grateful for wherever he might end up. Since Zane can also have Arabic roots, meaning "beauty" or "grace," your gorgeous bundle of joy is sure to wear the name with pride.
