About Shanay

Go back to names list

Shanay is a phonetically spelled variant of the feminine name Shanae, a name of modern coinage that started in America. It is thought that the name is based on the Irish feminine name Sinead, pronounced ‘sha-NAYD’. This name has been popular in America since Irish migration and is therefore a likely source of inspiration. The meaning of Sinead is ‘Gracious Lord’ so we can presume Shanae to have the same meaning. Sinead is the Gaelic version of the name Jane which is the feminine form of the Hebrew John.
