There has been a major discussion among the "Harry Potter" book fans as to the gender of Blaise Zabini, until it was confirmed by the authoress that Blaise is a he. I personally cannot see anything feminine to this name, but apparently there were some who did.

I'm loving this name, can't wait to have another child. It's so different from the norm and is lovely.

Throats are blessed on the feast of St. Blaise.

On St. Blaise's Day, Catholic families take their children to have their throughts blessed. The priest takes two white candles with red ribbons tied around the center and places one on each side of the neck with the bottoms crossed near the center of the chest. This blessing will protect you from choking or throat ailments. It is also good luck to wear red ribbon around your neck specifically after this ceremony.

I always thought the French pronunciation was "Blez", with a short e, but I could be wrong. [noted -ed]

I've always liked the name Blaise as a girl's name, even though the meaning is not exactly fabulous, and it is considered a boy's name. I first encountered it in a book where a character named Blaise was a witch and a highly unpleasant person, but I still liked her name. It seems so fresh, delicate and just slightly exotic.

Blaise was also fabled to have chronicled the Holy Grail tale, where King Arthur of Camelot went forth with the knights of the round table in search of one of the most famous relics. In the overall story, Blaise was a priest who was present at Merlin’s birth and guided him through his growth in order to control his good over evil. Blaise saw the potential danger but also good in Merlin as the tale tells that Merlin was born from the conjunction of holiness (his mother was a nun) and evil (his father was a demon). Blaise would council Merlin throughout his life, suggesting to Merlin to tell Arthur of the quest of the Holy Grail and of its importance.

I always associate this name as being distinctly feminine, possibly because when I was very young I read a book in which there was a sultry young witch named Blaise as a character. Plus, the -aise ending seems more effeminate to me than masculine. I find this a unique name; it looks delicate, but packs a punch.

I find it very ironic and humorous that the Roman version that this name came from means "lisping", because the Blaise I've ever known has a lisp.

"Lisping"? God forbid any twelve year old with a classmate named Blaise be given access to this site. The latter wouldn't survive the sixth grade.

Am I the only one who can see that this is a horses name?

I've always loved this name. I don't see it as feminine at all, mainly because any Blaise I've known has definitely been a male! It's also the main love interest for the protagonist in Vera Cowie's novel 'Fortunes'. Also male.
It's a shame that the meaning behind the name is lisping, as it is a beautiful name for a boy.
