What are your thoughts as a boys first name?

I like it.

It's one my boys' middle names, after a little boy I looked after when I was a teen. It's a great name. smile

I like it - a bit different but no ambiguity in terms of spelling or pronunciation

Nothing against Blake in particular but I'm not keen on surnames as first names.

EdithWeston Thu 09-Aug-12 21:27:12

It's fine as long as your surname isn't Carrington!

I like it. Unusual but to too bonkers. Good effort!

Nope, sounds Council Estate.

What about James?

James? hmm bit random.

I quite like Blake

A friend has a Blake, it's a lovely and underused name. She's in meeja though and I think that's why it works grin
