I am considering naming my first child Blake if it’s a boy or girl. I never knew of a boy named Blake until the Am. Idol Blake Lewis, but I grew up knowing an absolutely gorgeous, sweet and intelligent girl named Blake. She was (and prob. still is) the perfect all American girl.

I have a guy-friend whose name is Blake and It'suits him well. It is a reserved name, rather quite, yet with a sense of an inter'sting past. It's a very nice name.

My name is Blake Whittin'ton. My dad named me after the character on'the TV show Dyn'tsy, Blake Carrin'ton. He thought that the name'sounded very stately and important. I am now 16, and I beli've that my dad was right, because I feel very confident about my name. I beli've that Blake is a great name for anyone who wants to choose a name for their son'that'sounds very masculine and unique, but n't too outlandish.

My maiden name is Blake and since there was nobody to pass on the last name I really wanted to pass it on to my children. I had Blake picked for either a boy or a girl. My fathers name is Allena so it was Blake Allen for a boy and my sisters name is Alexis so it was Blayke Alexis for a girl. I added the "y" because my name Seydi (sadie) is spelled uniquely. people are always assuming she is a boy even dressed fully in pink! But i LOVE her name and that her full name means so much. Blayke after me Alexis after my sister and mine and my husbands last name!
