Duane m
Irish and English: Anglicized form of the Gaelic name Dubhán, originally a byname representing a diminutive form of Gaelic dubh dark, black. In modern use it may well represent the surname Ó Dubháin ‘descendant of Dubhán’, derived from the personal name. Its popularity since the mid-1950s was no doubt influenced by the fame of the guitarist and singer Duane Eddy.
Variants: Dwane, Dwayne.
