Blair brings to mind a cool, attractive American chick. I could never use it as I'm in England and Blair = Iraq War.
I think you misspelled the year here: "this time Blair Waldorf from the series Gossip Girl (2007-2112)."
I dislike this one, because I can't figure out if it sounds masculine or feminine. It seems to fit neither boys nor girls, but since it came back as a feminine name, I'd be sad for any boy named Blair. By the way, I think it's silly how TV shows influence the naming of children.
As I said on the name Grayson it seems to be an aspect of European American culture to use European surnames as first names and given the unique case of America it's a perfectly acceptable thing to do. It is a bit cheesy if done in UK though and I think this is a fair take.
Tony Blair and the Iraq war spring to mind.
Why do Americans turn British surnames into first names? Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Grayson, Clyde, Blair, Carter, Madison, Riley, Addison, Lincoln, Hudson, Everly, Kennedy etc Sorry I don't want to be mean, I understand white and black Americans choose names from their ancestor's lands for good reason but you have to admit that it's interesting and ironic that in attempting to connect to your roots you behave in somewhat of a discord with the very people you want to connect with.
Ooo, this name is beautiful- I do prefer Blaire. I think Blaire would be perfect for a girly girl, and Blair for a boy.
I think Blair is a really cool name with a sweet soft sound to it. I like it for either gender, though I probably slightly prefer it for a boy. For middle names for a boy, I think Blair James, Blair Brandon and Blair River all sound pretty cool. For a girl, I think Blair Marie, Blair Nicole and Blair Brielle sound nice.
Overall, I think Blair is a gorgeous name.
Sounds like glare, also isn’t very pretty… eww why name a child this?
I really like this name. I like it spelled Blair and it feels more like a girly name to me. I used to have a friend named Blair when I was 5, and she was super sweet, but also strong, sassy, and outgoing. I don't think I don't really like this name for a boy, but that's just my opinion. I prefer Blaire for a boy, because it reminds me of Blake, Blaine, or Blaise. The name also reminds me of the movie, The Blair Witch Project, but honestly I think that makes me like it more. It might be good for someone born around Halloween.
It gives me mysterious witchy vibes... it's cool.
Port Blair is the capital city of India's Andaman and Nicobar Islands. It was named after lieutenant Archibald Blair of the Bombay Marine.
Not bad. But I prefer the spelling Blaire. Overall the name is pretty plain.
Not a fan at all! Plain and just boring.
I’m gender fluid and thinking of changing my name to Blair since my birth name is very feminine. I really like the name on either gender and prefer the name without the extra “e” at the end.
This name is alright I guess. I don't love it or hate it. The spelling Blaire kind of reminds me of Claire, yet they're completely different. This name is alright for either gender.
Blair sounds nice on both boys and girls. I'd spell it Blair for a boy and Blaire for a girl, though. However on girls, it sort of makes me think of snobby high school girls for some reason.
I love this name, but I prefer the spelling "Blaire".
Blair is a boy name. Blaire is a girl name.
I really like this name and I'm actually thinking of changing my name to Blair.
Blair is a cool unisex name.
I really like it on either gender, but I will admit that I slightly prefer it on a girl. Lillianna (pronounced Lily-Anna with the Ann-uh way of saying it) Blair is one of my favorite names for a story character.
This is such a fantastic, handsome masculine name. I wish this would pick up a bit more on boys.
Blair Underwood also makes the name look good.
Really like this on a girl!
I just think of witches and creepy stuff when I hear this name because of the Blair Witch project.
A despicable name.
Doesn't sound feminine :P but it's adorable on a boy.

Blair Imani is an African American Muslim activist. She is known for her participation in the Black Lives Matter movement and advocacy for LGBT Muslims (herself identifying as a queer Muslim).
Libertarian commentator Blaire White is a famous bearer of this name.
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 name is Blair. I'm a girl and I love it- it seems so badass.
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.
Blair is a magical cat from the manga and anime Soul Eater.
Damn, I love this name! Boy or girl, it's just so cool!
The name Blair was given to 70 boys born in the US in 2015.
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...
Blair Dame, a fictional character in the video game Street Fighter EX is a famous female bearer of this name.
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.
It's a very bland sounding name to me.
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 for both genders, although I think it ages better on a boy.
For a girl I prefer Blaire!
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.
Love this name for a girl.

This is like my top favorite names.This name is for an independent, smart, and classy girl :)
Love this name! Sounds like a beautiful and carefree girl! I love this name and it's short and sweet! Classic and eyecatching. Not many people I know with this name.
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.
It's still snooty, but I really like this name now.
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.
Reminds me of a stuck up girl. I don't like it. :X
I LOVE this name! It sounds very sophisticated and pretty. I think it's a female name though, not male.
I like this name for a girl. It sounds girly to me and sophisticated, high class. It is very cool name. Reminds me of a model's name.
Linda Blair, famous actress best known for her role as Regan MacNeil in the horror film The Exorcist (1973).
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.
My name is Blair Marie and I really obsessed with fashion-and what's wrong with it? It doesn't mean I'm stupid or kinda cheap. I think the name Blair is really really sweet and 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.
I'm Blair and I think it's very good name (I'm girl)! My middle name is Leigh and together they sounds very trendy and stylish.
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.
My best friend's name is Blaire, I think it is feminine and unique. Also I like calling her the Blaire Witch.
The name of the character Blair Waldorf from the hit teen drama Gossip Girl. Blair is known for being the "It Girl" and being extremely vulnerable and insecure under her sexy, bratty exterior.
Blair. Witch. Project.Sorry, I had to throw that out there!
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.
I really like the name Blair, I think it is a nice name for a boy. In my opinion a girl named Blair would be like a boy named Anne.
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.
I love this name for a girl, but I would spell it Blaire, with an e at the end.
I would love to name a girl this but it's too mausculine.
If I named a boy this he would get teased. People would say "Blair, do you know ballet?".
Blair Cornelia Waldorf is one of the main characters in the Gossip Girl book series and TV shows. She's a wealthy, dominating girl who lives on Manhattan's Upper East Side.
Princess Blair is a princess in "Barbie in the Twelve Dancing Princesses".
I really love this name, but only for a male. If I ever have a son someday then this is the name I'm set on using.
I love this name! I know a kid named Blair (guy). It's a good name! But I like it as a guy name much more than a girl name. Probably cause I only know a guy who has the name, it looks weird on a girl for me.
It reminds me too much of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
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.
My name is Blair (I'm a girl), and I can't stand it! It's always mistaken for something else (usually Claire) and it's constantly spelled wrong.
I used to go to school with a boy named Blair, and didn't know it could be a girls name until later. I love the name for a girl, it is very pretty and strong.
I really like this name for a girl!
One of the two main characters names in the gossip girl books is named Blair. She is a smart person, a little sensitive but still very strong.
I know one Blair. He's amazing. When I think of the name Blair I think rock 'n' roll and opinionated. Honesty possibly.
My oldest daughter's middle name is Blaire. I love it and think is is beautiful. Her sister's middle name is Claire. I just don't know of a name that will go for my next daughter, if I have one!
Blair is a very nice name. I lean more towards a girl for this name, it is soft and gentle. I like the spelling with the "e" on the end, Blaire. I have also seen it spelt Blayre.
Famous bearer (as a surname): Anthony Charles Lynton Blair, first Labour Prime Minister elected to serve three terms in the United Kingdom.
Blair Warner was a character on the T.V. show "Facts of Life." She was played by Lisa Whelchel.
I have never known a Blair but I love that name, it is so catchy and unique!
I think Blair is such an awesome name! My friend's name is Blair (he's a guy) When I think of the name Blair, I think of someone who listens to rock music and is the most opinionated person I know.
I love this name! I have a friend named Blair, except she spells it with an E, which looks more feminine. It's a strong, unique name.
