And yes, I know it's a surname as a name that does not bother me smile

Thoughts on Blake for a boy?

GrendelsMum Tue 08-Jan-13 19:08:26

I think it's lovely - it's got a little bit of a hippy feel to it. I had an American friend called Blake when I was at college (though she was female).

Reminds me of a character from Home and Away in the 90s.

Don't like, sorry. Have an old friend in real life who has one. Would never say it to her face though.

Reminds me of Flake. However, am on a diet so I see chocolate everywhere.

How about Clarke? Similar but stronger?

I'm not keen on it as a first name, sorry.

a bit Home-And-Away teen soap star-ish for me (I'm an 80s child lol)

My friend nearly had it as her sons name but she couldn't get Amy winehouse boyfriend out of her head.

MirandaGoshawk Tue 08-Jan-13 22:05:14


And for a girl? shock Why would you, when there are so many beautiful proper girls' names out there?

MirandaGoshawk Tue 08-Jan-13 22:07:20

It's Blake Lively from ... whatever that US TV programme was - spoilt brats all bitching about each other & nicking boyfriends. Too trendy.

DisappointedHorse Tue 08-Jan-13 22:09:24

I like it and am usually very traditional. It just flows nicely!

BluddyNora Tue 08-Jan-13 22:10:51

ladymia Tue 08-Jan-13 22:39:51

I want to be talked out of the name Blake but none of the above reasons really put me off hmm maybe i really like it and that's a good thing smile
