Oliver Blake or Oliver Craig?

My preference would be Oliver Blake, but both are nice.

Which do you think sounds best with your surname?

I don't dislike Blake but love Craig; mainly because of its meaning. Who'd not like a man with a name that means 'rock'? Love it.

Blake is not a real name, please don't use it. Craig is far better. Oliver Charles would be better still.

Blake is much better than Craig.

No one uses Craig any more - I miss it. Have Craig Oliver I'm so helpful

We've just used Blake as middle name after the poet William Blake - whose work is something my mum is a n expert on and teaches in her field. So our us Blake carries a personal meaning and a tie to Britain for our British Indian baby.

It's pretty real for us.

Our surname is Johnson and I think they both go? It's so hard!

Blake is a nicer name but Craig goes better.

Oliver Craig goes very well.

Craig is a bit 'rubbbish 1980s popstar'.

Blake by a long shot.
