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!
