Blayne for a girl vs. Yes vs. No

Do you like Blayne for a girl, or would it strictly be a boy’s name? I think it sounds kind of feminine, rhymes with Laine which is a girl name. What do you think? If not, do you know any good alternatives that begin with B?

Nope, not at all-sorry.
Are you looking for something that sounds unisex or just something that begins with B?

Just thinking about B names, it can be unisex or girly. either one.

where on earth do some of these commenters get their names???
I would prefer Blayne over Beatrix, Belladonna, and Begonia anyday! lol (shudder)

I like Blayne. It is sort of masculine though. I’m wondering if you could spell it different to make it look more feminine... like maybe Blain or Blaen??
I like Shayne for a girl!!!!

Blaine is a surname. It’s Irish. It’s all boy to me. Lane is also a boys name. I had a friend (who just passed away. Only 17, bless his soul.) whose last name was Blaine.
The boy’s name Blain \b-lain\ is pronounced blayn. It is of Gaelic origin, and its meaning is "yellow". Anglicized form of the Gaelic personal name BlŠŠn, derived from Gaelic "blŠ". May also possibly mean "slender" in Gaelic. Name of an early Celtic saint (sixth century). Magician David Blaine.

Briony is very pretty and starts with a B. It’s a "flower" name but was spelled Bryony and I prefer Briony. It was in the movie: Atonement, too.

Blair (close. Still a boys name but whatever)

There is no need to be rude, I looked on a website for unique baby names after I looked on a regular site and didn’t find many names.
The poster obvioulsy likes names that aren’t necessarily in the top 10 if she is looking at Blayne and I thought I would give her some options, there is nothing wrong with that.

I Love Blaine...but spelled this way Blake is really cute for a girl too :)

Blayne/Blaine is just fine for a girl! I also like Blake, Blaire, Bethany, Bria, and Bella. Good luck!

I think its fine to name a girl Blayne if you love the name. As Blaine is a surname, I think that spelling would be very acceptable, too.

As for the other suggestions, my fave is Bethany.

I don’t like Blayne on a girl.. or a boy for that matter. Blaire on a girl is cute, as is Blake or Blakely.

Not a fan - it sounds very ’80s to me. Reminiscent of Shane, Duane, Sloane, Blair, Claire, etc.
