Doesn't sound feminine :P but it's adorable on a boy.

I don't like Blair much, it just seems plain. Bl is not my favorite sound either. But I would prefer it for a boy. I do like Claire and Clara on girls, though.

My father's name was BLAIR, he named my next to oldest brother BARRY BLAIR, I named my son BLAIR WILLIAM and he named his son BLAIR WILLIAM also.

Needless to say I do like the name - it is a strong name and had my son been a girl, yes, I was going to name her Blair also.

It's short and sweet. I plan on using this as a middle name.

Blair is quite a nice name. It works well for both genders. The only annoying thing about this name is it reminds me of Tony Blair aka Tony Bliar...

I love this name! My daughter's name is Blair Victoria and I think it's a very fashionable name. Blair, because of gossip girl and Victoria, because of Victoria's Secret.

Ugly name regardless of the gender. Just sounds harsh and unattractive. I don't understand the fuss over it.

Due to the influence of the classic name Claire, when I hear Blair I immediately think the bearer is female. But I still don't think I'd ever use it. For me, Blair is one of those names where I love the idea so much more than the reality - it looks really classy and sophisticated when written out, but once I hear it I think of car horns or sirens "blaring." It could make a really nice middle name, though.

To all decrying Blair as a more masculine than feminine name, there is such a thing called unisex names (Blake... Lively, Morgan, Reagan, so forth). Blair is personally much nicer than Blythe or Blake. Why add an extra letter or e when it looks perfect without?

Personally, I feel as if this name is more for a man. It gives me a mysterious vibe. I really like it and will think about using it in the future.

I don't understand why someone wouldn't want to "give their son a name that a bunch of girls will have." I don't mean to come off as being rude, but I just don't really comprehend or understand that logic. Either way, I prefer Blair for a girl. It sounds spunky, laid back, and sort of witchy. It gives me similar vibes as the ones I get from the name Sabrina, which is likely why I prefer this name for women.

Such a pretty name for girls, and a handsome name for boys.

This is such a handsome name for a boy/man and it's such a shame that society has ruined it by making it a female name, since people such as myself would not want to give their son a name that a bunch of girls will have. And adding an unnecessary 'e' at the end does NOT make it more girly.

The name Blair was given to 63 baby boys born in the US in 2012. It makes a great boy name in my opinion, and it's not so widely used on girls that he'd get teased a lot for it. But on a girl, it's really not that bad, especially compared to "feminine" names like Madison and Taylor. At least it sounds like a girl name. I like the spelling Blaire for a girl.

I love this name! Great for both sexes, male and female! I hate the modern spelling "Blaire" with an e at the end. It looks fake. But I love Blair, and it is cool!

I like this name for a girl, although I'm not sure about the association with 'Claire'. I would spell it with an 'E' on the end. ;)

I love this name for a girl! And I don't think that it needs an e at the end to make it seem more feminine. I prefer the way it looks without the e. To me, this name is too feminine for a boy rather than too masculine for a girl.

This is 1 of the few names I absolutely don't like. For a boy or a girl. A girl it reminds me of a snoppy, pristine girl. The name sounding is Bla. If you're considering it for a girl try Claire. For a boy try anything else.

I love this name, on both sexes, but I prefer it on a girl.
To me, it doesn't sound like a stuck-up, snobby rich girl name, despite the associations with Gossip Girl and Juicystar.
It sounds like a laid-back, really opinionated girl whose sexy without ever wearing makeup, and who is always listening to Black Sabbath on a stereo, or reading 80s comics. It reminds me of Blair Butler, the comic book correspondent on AOTS.

I think Blair is a short but pretty name for a girl. I think it is more feminine than masculine. If in doubt, you can always add an "e" at the end which makes it look more feminine.

I like this name on a boy, but not on a girl. As a feminine name, Blair makes me think of a snooty popular girl or heiress obsessed with fashion. It doesn't sound very feminine anyway.

Love the name, love the spelling! Makes me think of a little girl with dark chocolate-colored hair and ivory skin; very "uptown". Also a name that she can grow with.

This name is really unusual I think. It's not every day you meet a Blair. I know a girl named Blair. I think it's a nice middle name also. When I hear the name Blair I think of a pretty city girl who is kind of unusual and has cool hair.

I only know one Blair and I really like this name. I hate it for a girls name though, it just doesn't fit. It's a good name because it's not very popular. Or at least I've hardly ever heard it as a first name.

My younger *male* cousin is called Blair (circa 97/98) so I can't imagine he'll ever really come across another Blair his age. I like his name because it's different, even though he's in the UK and would've been hearing Tony Blair constantly the past few years it isn't overly common.

I don't think this is a name for a girl though, even if I like the Gossip Girls character I think it's more masculine than feminine.

I absolutely hate this name for both sexes. I'd say it sounds more masculine than feminine, but I really think it should be preserved as a surname. It makes me think of 'blur', 'blare', and even 'Bleurgh!' It just has a really unpleasant sound to it from the beginning to the end, and it reminds me of Tony Blair.

My cousin, a boy, is called Blair and I think it suits a boy better than a girl. Although I like it on both, I think it's more masculine. He gets called Bear as a nickname from family or Blairy.

Blair's a pretty cool name. It sounds like someone mysterious and smart.
For some strange reason, Blair Witch comes to mind, but that doesn't really have an effect on me. The thing that does, is Miss Blaire, my creepy old art teacher who had a strange looking rocking horse in her classroom.

I don't know. I like it for a boy with that spelling, and Blaire for a girl. I wouldn't name my children that, though, because I think they could be mistaken for the opposite sex.
