No. Apart from anything, it's very hard to say out loud.

There was a thread recently on Blakeley that rightly saw the OP dissuaded. Blakesley is even worse.

Awful. I hate surnames used as first names but even worse if it's unpronounceable. Why not just Blake (which is still horrible but at least people can say it)? Sorry to be so blunt OP but this is a person not place name.

My friend's son is Blake. Nice, solid and puts one in mind of the great William Blake.

What do you like about it? Is it the difficult to pronounce random S in the middle? The fact that your child wouldn't be able to pronounce it let alone spell it until they are 12? That nobody will ever know how to spell it and they will he spelling over the phone for their entire lives?
You're naming a person, not a pet

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