  • poll: What do you think of Blaise?

    Blaise Griffin is a great name!

    Blaise Griffin is awful!

    Blaine is better than Blaise!

    Go with the more common Benjamin

    Blaze...who cares what people think!

    @Heidibrooke:  Definitely no to Blaise. I do like almost all of the new names you posted though.

    I just noticed that not only do they all start with B, but also Br ..would it bother you if this child didn’t have the Br?  It would subtly drive me crazy deep down haha.

    Look at Baby Name Wizard – Voyager tool to see what names have done, popularity-wise, over the last 120 years. Also, I like Blayne with a “y” much better (looks like a boys name with the “Y”, but then that’s just one person’s crazy opinion!)

    The only Blaise I know is a girl. I really like Blaine though, for your theme. I don’t think it is too common at all. I wouldn’t put it in the same category as Benjamin (although I do love it).

    @Heidibrooke:  I really like Blaise.  It’s a strong French name and while not super popular in America, I don’t think it’s “weird” at all. I also like the middle name Griffin, if when he is old enough he feels his name is not desirable, he can always go by his middle name.

    Blaise is a classic yet uncommon name. What about using it as the middle name: Griffin Blaise? You don’t have to continue using B as your first initial if you don’t want to, you know. Don’t get trapped in a prison of your own making . . .

    Blaise is a great name! Benjamin is more my taste, but I think Blaise is way better than the more trendy boys’ B names.

    I think you should ignore the homophone haters. There are lots of good names that sound like unfortunate words, like Harry, Rob, Jack, Bill, etc.

    All these names with “bla” sound so bland. I think you should start over. Please dont name him blaise though unless you want people to think you’re a pot head 😛

    Bennett, Beau, Banks, Barron (the second two being a bit more uncommon)

    baby name wizard is great because you can filter it specifically to what you want!

    I like Bennett, Beckett, and Benjamin. Not a big fan of Beau. I kind of like Beckham too.
