I heard this name on TV recently and thought that it was very plain. It gave me the impression that someone was born in a lake to receive that name, or maybe just liked swimming.

I like the name Lake as a middle name on a girl. Laura Ingalls Wilder's mother's name was Caroline Lake.

I think that this name is pretty. I think it is more for a girl than a boy.

I have seen some girls named Laken.

Lake is very feminine to me, personally.

This name reminds me of a famous bearer of this as a surname: Veronica Lake.

Hmmm. I like this for reasons I cannot explain, as I'm not generally a fan of "word" names. I prefer it on a boy, and would probably only use it on a character, not a son.

Could be confused by children to be "Blake". And they might get called "Lake the Flake" or "Lake the Fake".

I think this is a unisex name. I can see both guys and girls called Lake. I really like it!

I adore this name for a girl and I want to use it someday. There is a lake nearby with my name so I am deciding to use the actual lake's name for my daugther.

Well, it's not totally absurd. People have been naming their sons (and even daughters) River ever since River Phoenix became famous, and it sounds almost ''normal'' by now, and Blake is a popular name. This could work, but it is a bit odd at the moment.

I love that name as middle name for a boy (but it's okay for girls too) - I could definitely imagine to use it on a son.

A "famous" bearer is Lake Bell - an actress on the TV shows Surface and Boston Legal.

The name of an actress, Lake Bell, from movies such as "Over Her Dead Body," featuring Eva Longoria-Parker.

Who would name their child this?

This is a stupid and pathetic hippie name.

This sounds silly and ridiculous on anyone. Are people that low on name ideas that they have to resort to common nouns now? At least other nouns can work as names, like Rose, Joy, and Violet!

This is NOT a name.

This name seems more feminine than masculine. I still wouldn't use it, though. Lynn means the same thing pretty much, and (in my opinion) does the job a whole lot better.

I much prefer the spelling Laik.

I also find this name feminine. I had a character named Marina Lake.

I like this name for a guy, I really can't see it as a girl name. I really like it, it has a nice sound to it. I like the name 'Laken' more though.

I love the name Lake. My son's name is Lake. It is very unique and rarely used these days. I can't imagine his name being any different. I definitely think it should be a boys name.

Actress, Lake Bell. ( I really like the name! It could be used for a girl or a boy. [noted -ed]

This can also be a female name, as in the actress Lake Bell.
RyanD  1/26/2016
The name Lake was given to 64 boys born in the US in 2015.

Sounds too much like a word to me, but I always lived by Lake Erie and people mention it a lot.
