Girl named Blake?? vs. yes? vs. no?

My brother’s mn is Blake and I love it, but I am considering it for a girl...so we don’t have 2 Blake boys in the family. Do you know any Blake’s as girls? Can it go both ways? What do you think? If so, what’s a middle name, etc.

It’s not pretty and not feminine. I do love the name but only on a boy. It does not suit a girl.

I think the name Blake could be for a girl. I personally don’t like the name Blake on a boy. I like it better on a girl.You are thinking good and outside the box

Blake Lively pulls it off nicely. Although she is a 6 foot famous actress. I really like unisex names. Blake is one that is right on the fence for me. I don’t think I’d use it but I would use Ryan and Elliot for girls. I don’t know why Blake just seems like a little too much for me.

Blakely Rose
Blakely Anne
Blakely Faith

Any really girly MNs will work. I think a nice one syllable name would be pretty. (:

My daughter’s name is Blake and we get compliments on it all the time. My daughter’s middle name is Leslie after my great grandmother.

I know several girls with the middle name Blake, but none with it for a first name. I like it, though. I think Blake with a girly middle name would be cute.

I like the name Blake for a girl. But not Blakely. I think a cute middle name for a girl named Blake would be Blake Marie.

Love the name Blake for a girl. I actually believe it sounds more feminine then masculine!

My daughter just lost a baby and named her Blake Marie. I like it, even though it is a sad situation.

My daughters name is Courtney Blake she is 17 and she likes her middle name, we call her Blake and people who meet her like her name! I wish sometimes I had went with another first name like Madison Blake, Alexis Blake, etc. but I never regretted naming her Blake!

My name is Blake and I am a girl. I hate when people tell me I have a boy name but I also do get a lot of compliments, and Blake Lively helped me feel better about my name.

My name is Blake and I’m girl and I love it! I’m a teacher and my kids always point out that I have a boy name haha. But it’s great. My middle name is Lauren!

I’m due in 2 weeks and we picked Blake for our baby girl. Friends told me it’s a nice, unique and strong name for a girl. We’re all excited to see her!!

My daughter is named Blake Morgan and we get tons of compliments. I,originally, wanted Blake Ryen but our last name starts with an A and we agreed that the initials BRA were not a good combo. Maybe someone else can use it and love it.

I guess it’s not common, but it works. Various people have pointed out Blake Lively. Of course, she and Ryan named their daughter James. If you’re happy with it, go for it.

I love the name Blake for a girl. I am currently pregnant and this is top of our list for girls name.
We like Hazel as a middle name, in memory of my grandma and think it suits with the babies last name of Clark.

My first grandchild is going to be a girl;her mom wants her middle name to be Blake. I am actually loving it.

You are all a bunch of idiots. Blake is a boy’s name or a lesbian
