The first name 

Lania is a first name for girls.

Lania – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Lania in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Lania in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Lania by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Lania ranks at #6,354. That means there are 6,353 more common girls names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Lania.

Although the name never ranked higher than #2,552, 60 parents chose it that year, making it a potential new rising star on the horizon of beautiful and rare names. If your name is Lania, you are well on your way to becoming en vogue.

In years where the graph has no value, the name Lania was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.
