Comments and insights on the name Blaise: | Edit

Most commonly pronounced "bl-aze" but also pronounced like "bl-ace"

Blaise is a traditionally male French name, but is a lovely name when given to girls as well.

Blaise is becoming more popular as a girl's name, but is still predominantly a boy's name. This may change soon as more unique baby names are coming into style.

Blaze is a cool, alternative spelling.

I like the name Blaise for a girl much more than a boy. I like it pronounced bl-ace, but either one is pretty.

Isabel and Blaise are anagrams of each other; they contain the same letters.

Personal experiences with the name Blaise: | Edit

My 23 year old daughter is named Blaise. I recently asked her if she liked her name. She stated that she loves her name, it's uniqueness and that she is not confused for other people. It doesn't hurt that she turned out to be an artist!

Because the name is pronounced "Blaze" people often ask "Is that your real name? Or is that a nickname?"

Lots of cannabis jokes about the pronunciation as well.
