I like the name but I think of it as feminine. I once worked with a lady who named her daughter Blaise.

This name can also be FEMININE, making it UNISEX.

In the USA, it was given to 31 girls in the years 2014 to 2017
In the UK, it's more common to both genders and also given to 12 girls in 1998

I personally don't care for this name and it's likely that I never will. However, the spelling is at least decent. I wouldn't recommend this name but if it absolutely HAD to be used, I would implore you to stick to the original spelling.

I actually know a girl named Blaise, I always thought it was a solely masculine name but it suits her really well. She does complain sometimes that she has such an unusual and masculine name, but it's very unique and definitely suits her confident fiery personality. I think you'd have to have the right personality as a girl to suit this name, and of course you won't know what personality your child will have until they grow up so it's a bit hit and miss. Nonetheless, I think it's a lovely and uncommon name for a boy, I much prefer this spelling over any other.

I like Blaise, but not Blaze or the marijuana thing. I would not use it because of that, but I don't see anything wrong with it on someone else's child.

Blaise is a wonderful masculine name. To spell it any other way cheapens it. I am considering this name to go along with big brother Roman.

I like this name... reminds me of Harry Potter...

My name is Blaise and I love it so far. A lot of people think it's a nickname from time to time or if it's a first impression. I am a guy, and so far I just get high-fives or even a look that says "that is one cool name." That's just in my point of view though!

If you're going to pronounce this "Blaze", just know that in America "to blaze" means "to smoke weed." So uhh...

Splendid name.

Also a female version of the name spelt Blaize.

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.

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

"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.

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.

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.

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'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.

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

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 have met two (British) females called Blaise.

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

Blaise Zabini is a character in the Harry Potter series.
― Anonymous User  8/16/2005
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.
