    In all honesty… I really don’t like Blaise. Even though it’s spelled different than Blaze…it still sounds the same and I’m not crazy about it regardless of how it’s spelled.

    I do like Benjamin, is it plain? Maybe but I think it’s a good strong classic name.

    Any other B names you like/dislike?

    Sucks you can’t use Blake I really like that. What about Braydon/Bradan? Different yet not too different.

    @Heidibrooke:  Why can’t you use Blake?

    If I saw Blaise, I would immediately think it meant “nonchalant”.

    Braeden, Brendan, Branson…I love Celtic names.

    Go with Benjamin. If I met someone named “Blaise” I would totally think his parents were hippies or potheads.

    I adore Blaise. I often wondered why more people don’t use it. I mean, Jasenism aside, Blaise Pascal was all kinds of awesome.

    Not a fan of Blaise or Benjamin. I acutally like Blake. You haven’t tried any other names?

    I like Blaise, but if you’re concerned about Blaze, I think that’s still too similar.  I also think Benjamin is a little too traditional in comparison to your other children’s names.  Blaine is ok, but not my favorite really :/.  What about..

    Brockton (too close to Braxton &/or Brooke maybe?)

    Bennett (similar-ish to Benjamin)

    I’m having a hard time with names myself so I hate to tell you I don’t like it when you’ve found a name you like, but I don’t.

    If you like Benjamin but want something a bit different what about Bennett?

    I see a PP beat me to it.  I was going to suggest Bennett instead of Benjamin.

    Edited to add, what about Beckett?  I really like that name right now.  I would use the nickname Beck.

    Not a huge fan of any of your names except Benjamin. Some B names I like are: Brandon, Burke, Brian, Brody…
