Good / bad / ugly? grin

Having a really hard time picking a name!

You are obviously much too young to remember Blake 7 or you wouldn't be considering it.

Really like it, but then I also love Blaine which didn't go down too well on here..

Sounds like a surname e.g. Quentin Blake, William Blake etc.

BananaBubbles Sun 04-Nov-12 13:05:33

Love it.

I'm of the Blake's 7 camp. It's a surname, not a first name. As is Blain (David Blain)

HolyAutumnGoldBatman Sun 04-Nov-12 13:11:18

Love it.

I wouldn't be put off by it being a surname tbh. I know people with a common 'first name' surnames, e.g. Thomas so it's not something which would worry me.

I have no clue what blake 7 is and quite like surnames for first names so not put off smile

Always think of Amy Winehouse's boyfriend. Not a good thing.

Not keen, sorry.

LemonLovesLilac Sun 04-Nov-12 17:15:18

No really keen on it sorry!

Gugglebum Sun 04-Nov-12 23:56:05

Love it. It's one of my boys' middle names. It means 'handsome' so how can that be bad? smile

ZenNudist Sun 04-Nov-12 23:57:21

No, sorry don't like it

Love it, but mainly because I worked with a lovely little Blake who was a real character so it has fond memories for me.

Alisvolatpropiis Mon 05-Nov-12 19:47:57

I like it! And I also have no idea what Blake 7 is smile

MissWinklyParadiso Mon 05-Nov-12 19:48:57

Amy Winehouse's junkie boyfriend, sorry.

MerryMarigold Mon 05-Nov-12 19:51:06

It's a bit Mills and Boon for me.

jellybeans Mon 05-Nov-12 20:01:49

I love it.

ladymia Mon 05-Nov-12 20:31:35

I am still not put off so maybe this means I am starting to go from like to really like

Wish i could find a name i love though!

MaryAstor Mon 05-Nov-12 21:39:11

Blimey, I had forgotten about Blakeincarcerated!

But so what, anyway? I like it.

Oh! I just remembered about Blake Dean from Home and Away! How you not call your baby Blake now? He will grow up to be a total FOX.

Seriously, I think it's slightly unusual but not weird, and rhymes with snowflake...DO IT.

Fluffyfish Mon 05-Nov-12 23:17:19

I really like it. Though would be scared of it being too American to actually use.

Fluffyfish Mon 05-Nov-12 23:18:02

I think about Home and Away Blake too.
