What do you think of the name Blake for a boy ? Is it a good name?

For me it’ll always be Amy Winehouse’s dodgy husband and her awful boob tattoo. But I do like the name.

Can it be a sophisticated name?

Carrington or Seven

Love it

It’s an uncommon name so he wouldn’t be one of many in a class but I wouldn’t describe it as sophisticated no. Sorry OP

It's lovely!

I think of Seven too.

I can imagine a character called Blake in a Jilly Cooper novel. (Is that sophisticated or just posh?)

No. Sorry.

I love it smile DH wouldn't let me use it though!

I quite like it. There is a poet/author called Blake Morrison.
It does sound a bit like Flake though.

I am not concerned about the connection with Amy Winehouse husband because when our son is growing up that is a old story same aged Children don’t even know.

I know a boy Blake! It’s a lovely name! He’s a very nicely behaved and sweet boy.

Blake Carrington.

You mean B’Loke surely??

1Lara1 Fri 09-Feb-18 20:19:48

Blake .... It’s not particularly a chav name, is it ?

FartlekNewYearHell Fri 09-Feb-18 20:20:52

It's very American sounding but I think it's a good strong name.

blaaake Fri 09-Feb-18 20:25:54

I love it, clearly

Petalflowers Fri 09-Feb-18 20:27:35

I agree, American-type name, but perfectly respectable and fine.

I also,link it with Blake Seven, but younger people won’t automatically make that link. If you love it, use it.

Not keen. Sounds like a comic book hero.

tatree Fri 09-Feb-18 20:42:25

I love it! Always imagine dark and handsome when I picture a male blake

DramaAlpaca Fri 09-Feb-18 20:46:29

I like it for a boy. I'm not normally keen on surnames for first names, but I do like Blake. Hate it for a girl, though.

By the way OP, 'chav' is particularly nasty way to describe a name.

I think it's a lot better than the vast amount of shit names out there
