Blakesley yes or no

It doesn't sound like a first name. How about Brooke or Blaire - anything but Blakesley.

Go with Blake! Then use Blakes as nickname.

It's tolerable I just think there's nicer names out there.
Spelling could vary, I'm a fan of boring names for easy spelling.

Are we talking about a boy or girl here? It's hideous for both but for a girl it is unforgivable

It's so, so bad.

No. Sounds made up and awkward.

Blakesley is the surname of a family I know. All their marriages (of the ones I have met) have fallen apart.

It's a no from me.

I have taught a Bexley which sounds much better I know it's a place but she shortened it to Bex.

Blakesley and Neveah are awful names. I teach a few Neveahs. It's sounds odd when said out loud.

Awful OP

There’s a whole world of names away from Blakesley and Nevaeh.

It's not even a word, never mind a name.

TiceCream Sun 24-Nov-19 23:55:46

Haha it made me think of Pugsley too!

BonBon411 Mon 25-Nov-19 02:23:49

Sorry the name is awful

dreichwinter Mon 25-Nov-19 03:05:57

Not for me, Blake seems a nicer version of this.

Wallywobbles Mon 25-Nov-19 03:24:52

I grew up there. Or there's about. It's a village in Northamptonshire.

Whattodoabout Mon 25-Nov-19 12:00:33

Horrible. I remember Blake and other names like Mason and Tyler being fashionable a few years ago. Surnames don’t make nice first names.

Blakesly? Is just made up.

CravingCheese Mon 25-Nov-19 12:12:48

You mentioning Nevaeh (also a firm no from me, btw) seems to indicate that you are expecting a girl.

Blair and Blake are boy's names (to me) but they would work.

Or how about Morgan, Alex, Alexis, Nina, Annora, Honor, Heaven, Noelle, Rowan, Brooke, Robyn, Avery, Tamar, Mical, Audrey, Charlie, Rory, Maryn, Maryse, Portia or Quinn?

percheron67 Mon 25-Nov-19 17:32:19

OK as a surname.

MrsNoMopp Mon 25-Nov-19 18:02:17

Assuming baby is a girl, here are a few other short-ish names...
