Blaine for a girl?

Or Blake ?

Any other names like this? (Short and strong)

Thanks ! smile

Blaine sounds like a name you'd find in Dubbo, Australia. Not good.

Blake is bad, but not as bad as Blaine.

Oh no, not good. Not my taste, though, to be fair.

WaitroseCoffeeCostaCup Sat 04-Mar-17 20:56:16

I much prefer Blake.

Awful truly

RJnomore1 Sat 04-Mar-17 20:58:11

I like them. I like short strong names for girls

Not keen on Blaine for a girl, but I like Blake

Makes me think of chillblaine.

My first thought was Bane from batman, which would put me off. I'm not keen on Blake either (for girl or boy).

Pp's suggestion of Brooke is nice. I knew a girl called Dale at school, which might meet your criteria?

Reminds me of David Blaine, so it's a no I'm afraid.

Wasn't Blaine/Blane the name of the rich boy who liked Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink back in the 80s?

Not convinced it would be a good name for a girl (or a boy, tbh).

summerholsdreamin Sat 04-Mar-17 21:38:21

Yes reminds me of the 'Blaine' in Pretty in Pink

I still really like it tbh! would Tate or Kit be better?

elQuintoConyo Sat 04-Mar-17 22:05:48

Blaine = Andrew McCarthy grin

Tate is nice.

Not a fan personally, but it's not really my taste. You might like:

Sloane
Wren
Lark

Briar
Fern
Gwen
Paige
Blair
Tess
Blythe
Maeve

YY Andrew McCarthy is Blaine. I thought it was an awful name.

BadToTheBone Sat 04-Mar-17 22:12:26

Chilblain

LegosAndSkiing Sat 04-Mar-17 22:24:17

None...

But go with whatever you like.

shaggedthruahedgebackwards Sat 04-Mar-17 22:25:33

What about Blythe?

Joeybee Sat 04-Mar-17 22:29:26

Not keen on Blaine for a girl tbh. Blake sounds better I think. Not really my style. What about something else short but strong like Raine or Lux or Wren or Sloane or Blair or Blythe?

bigchangesabound Sat 04-Mar-17 22:30:11

Wasn't he a character on Glee? The gay guy that started at the posh school then moved to the high school to be with the other guy. Had a really good voice though!

helensburgh Sat 04-Mar-17 22:37:58

Blair is common in my part of the country for girls

Gallavich Sat 04-Mar-17 22:38:47

Blaine, Blake, Tate and Kit for a girl?
Why though?
