Blakesley yes or no

BikeRunSki Mon 09-Dec-19 11:09:14

No, but I like Blake

Leopardprintboots Mon 09-Dec-19 11:07:46

Really don’t like it

I like Blake or Brooke though

No. Looks like a typo of Blakeley

This. Agree with you though OP Neveah is worse.

ballsdeep Sun 08-Dec-19 17:05:19

Is it even a name?!

FizzyGreenWater Sun 08-Dec-19 16:55:41

I thought this was the Blakesey thread resurrected!

Blakesley even worse.

Sounds like a 1970s football manager.

Oh god no.

I live four miles away from a village called Blakesley.
It's actually quite a pretty girls name,never thought about it in that way

No that’s awful

Blake is an awful name, Blakesley is even worse. Nevaeh is such a joke of a name, I think it's just trashy.

I've been thinking about the name since I replied. Have you tried to combine 2 names (say Blake and Lesley/Blake and Lee) and come up with Blakesley?

PineappleDanish Fri 29-Nov-19 18:43:37

Absolutely not.

And it doesn't matter if it;s a boy or a girl.

Blake is nice. Blakely would be pretty naff. Blakesly though.... have you even tried saying it out loud?? What are you thinking?

MrsPelligrinoPetrichor Fri 29-Nov-19 17:17:23

Bexley is a great name imo. Blakelsey is a mouthful.

Chocmallows Fri 29-Nov-19 17:10:17

As bad as Chardonnay

Chocmallows Fri 29-Nov-19 17:09:47

Absolutely awful

doritosdip Fri 29-Nov-19 17:09:32

People will assume that Blake for a girl is after Blake Lively. I think it's fine for a boy but not great on a girl.

Nevaeh- just no

DelphiniumBlue Fri 29-Nov-19 17:08:09


MandeLular Fri 29-Nov-19 17:04:54

Nope. But Blake is fine.

TurquoiseDress Thu 28-Nov-19 00:32:19

Er no

CAG12 Wed 27-Nov-19 14:29:15

Shes a girl!

CravingCheese Wed 27-Nov-19 14:09:53

My friend is called Blaize. She hates it.

Blaise however is lovely. (for a boy, not a girl.)

No sorry, Blakesley as a first name is terrible. Blake is nice but I know some people are snobby about names like that. Blakey just sounds like flaky and reminds me of those metal things on your shoes that make you sound like a tap dancer!

If you’re going to go with Nevaeh then you need to spell it ‘properly’ (as in Heaven spelled backwards) not Neveah, which is easier to pronounce but not how the name originally came about 20 years ago, and so meaningless.

If there’s one thing worse than being lumbered with a strange name that’s difficult to spell already, it’s having it on your birth certificate with another even more wrong spelling.

But why though? What is the fascination with trying to come up with super induvidual names?

My friend is called Blaize. She hates it.
