*lanō > lane / lanu

This name derives From the Old English “lane / lanu”, meaning (a lane, alley, avenue), from the Proto-Germanic "*lanō", meaning (lane, passageway). It was originally a surname given to people who lived in an area called a Lane, specifically a narrow roadway that ran between hedges. It was used as a surname long before it was used as a given name.
