Yay! I'm the first one to comment! lol. Well I think that Blaine is a unique name. In fact, I've only known one Blaine in my entire life! Well I think this name yells out UNIQUE, and I highly recommend using it as a boy's name.

I find the name Blaine rather plain.

Since the only connection I have to this name is the character in Pretty in Pink, I really don't like Blaine. It sounds pretentious, and I personally am not fond of the "blah" sound.

I love the name Blaine. Blaine is a very handsome name, when I think of someone with the name Blaine I think of a guy who is very good looking!

I personally don't like this name, not even for a pet. But I guess it is good for a made up name!

It's my brother's name, but I've also heard of it being used for girls. It's also cool spelled Blayne.

I like this name a lot, but I like it better spelled Blayne.

Personally I like the name Blaine. Not only is this my middle name, but I prefer to go by it over my first name. It also disturbs me that two people completely insulted my name.

"Blaaaaane, his name is Blaaane? That's a major appliance, that's not a name!"

Despite the negative comments, I like it. It's different but not bizarre. Unfortunately, it does rhyme with plain. I think it becomes much more usable if paired with a more accepted name like Jonathan, Matthew, William, etc.

Blaine the Train from the Dark Tower series by Stephen King.

I like the name but I'm not sure it's useable at this point in American society.
GibsonGirl  1/20/2012
Nice name, but Stephen King ruined it for me. Now it just calls to mind psychokiller monorail trains...

'Blaine' can also be spelled 'Blayne.' It can also be a girl's name.

I think that this name is a bit too feminine for a boy, though.

Reminds me of the guy from glee, and I don't even watch that show.

My middle name is "Blaine" and my mom decided on it because my grandma's names are "Bonnie" and "Elaine"... combine them together and what do you get? :) I'm quite fond of it for that reason, and have never met anybody else with it.

Blaine is my name. I think it is magnificent. When I was a boy, I wished it was something more common but now I revel in it. I am also pleased that I am not a member of the herd, rather unique and noteworthy.

I named my son Blaine and he has been the only one in the school from preschool to now high school with his name. I love that it is not common.

Bleynn is my name and I prefer my spelling over the rest. I've had nothing but success with my name. I always get comments on my name when I meet people and nobody ever forgets it! Having this name has been a win win because it's such a strong name and the guys really like it and the girls really love it! I'm living proof! So don't listen to any of the negative BS on this comments page! ;)

I LOVE this name. My husband and I named our son, Blaine. It's not a girls name, nor is it lame! If any of you have ever watched NHRA Drag racing, you would know your history of the name. Blaine Johnson was a top fuel dragster race driver. He was in a terrible accident at the Indy track in Indianapolis, IN. He was then air lifted to the nearest hospital where he was pronounced DOA. My husband was at the race at the NHRA annual National race down there. That's why we've named our son, Blaine. And by our opinion (of course ours is the only one that matters to our friends and family) the correct spelling of the name is: BLAINE! If my son's name is so lame, then why is Notre Dame looking at him for a full free baseball scholarship? No nonsense names here.

I know a woman named Blaine. That's a first for me. But I actually didn't know it wasn't necessarily used for women at the time I met her. I wouldn't use it for my own purposes but it's not the worst name.

I'm the third generation of Blaines in my family. My grandfather was named for James G. Blaine, "The Gentleman from Maine", who ran for President against Grover Cleveland in 1884. For some reason my great-grandfather named all his sons after famous Republicans, even though his father fought for the Confederacy in the Civil War.

Anyway, if you look at the historical popularity of this name, that's why it spikes in 1884. And yeah, the name was a real burden when I was a kid, but these days folks think I'm from the New England gentry, instead of a hillbilly from West Virginia!

My name is Blaine and I have always liked the name. It's unique and most people who hear the name like it as well. You really can't go wrong with this name if you choose it. For some reason people usually associate this with someone who is part of the upper class. My grandmother said she met a banker back in the day and loved the name and suggested it to my mother.

Blaine is a character in the TV series Totally Spies! He is one of Clover's ex-boyfriends and a fellow spy in WOOHP.

I apologize to those that may be offended by this but I personally dislike this name. It reminds me of a frat boy or a snobby popular kid.
