    If the last name is O'Leary, I would not name her Leah. Too much l-e-a in the first and last name. I like Lana a lot better with O'Leary. I haven't known but two Lanas in my life. The last name is Irish, maybe she should look up Irish names that start with L?

    The first answerer thinks Lana is 'dated' and Leah is not? Wasn't there some unattractive daughter in the bible named Leah, whose dad gave to an employee instead of his pretty daughter Rachel?

    I like Lana, because there aren't as many Lanas around as there are Leahs.

    Plus Leah O'Leary sounds a bit alliterative, and it might turn into Learoleary

    Lana O'Leary or Leah O'Leary?

    I'd have to say Leah. It has a softer sound to it, and overall I think it flows better with the last name. They sound like they could come from the same region.

  • I like Leah more because a lot of names flow with it. Plus, I've never heard of the name Lana until now.

    Definitely Leah. Lana is a little dated, Leah is just so pretty.

    I like Leah for some reason. I think it's so beautiful.

    It's a name that I wouldn't get tired of hearing. I can't explain it much, but I just like it a lot more.

    Good luck and best of wishes. =)
