I knew a kid named Slade when I was little, I thought his name was slave until I saw it written down.
The name Slade is an AWESOME name. It reminds me of a surfer, living in Huntington Beach CA. Just chillaxin on the beach. Yep. I can't help but love love love this name. It's DEFINITELY a cool name, still a bit different although getting much more popular as time goes by. I liked the uniqueness of the name that's why 10 years ago I named my son Slade. And NO, NO NO NO, DOES IT MAKE ME THINK OF SLAY. REALLY WOW. ANYWAYS I love it, it reminds me of confidence, strong, smart, funny, very handsome, so it fits my son to the "T". Yes I know all Moms say that, but it's so true. Lol. Hehehe. Have an awesome day everyone.
I don't know about this one. I think it has a very nice sound, but I wouldn't use it for my son.
Purely villainous, especially when you refer to Deathstroke from DC Comics.
I like the name Slade. It is different and it sounds sort of harsh and violent but also cool and fluid. I really do not know how to explain it. I do really like the name Slade, though.
The name Slade was given to 156 boys born in the US in 2015.
I'm not really a fan of this name. Whenever I hear it, I imagine Noddy Holder in crazy glam rock clothes singing "Mama We're All Crazee Now" or whatever the song was called. Slade were a great 70s British band, but that doesn't mean you should call your kid that.
Reminds me of some "heroic" character from the 90s speaking in even then outdated (or just made up) slang. Maybe because of the character called Deathstroke, aka Slade Wilson, who was known in the Teen Titans cartoon as simply Slade, as mentioned above, but he's a villain and I don't remember reading any comics about him, so..
Anyways, I don't think that I could take someone named Slade seriously. It's probably supposed to sound cool, but it just doesn't. Even Blade or Shade would be better.
Slade Smiley from 'The Real Housewives of Orange County' has this name. That makes it a no-go in my book.
I have only recently heard the name Slade and I have fallen in love it. It sounds upscale, modern, mysterious, and if I have a son, his name will definitely be Slade.
Sounds to me like a combination of "sling" and "blade"--like the movie "Sling Blade." (Good movie, though.) But all in all, to me the name Slade implies violence. The only way I can see myself using it is for an evil character.
Slade Echeverria, the lead singer and bassist of the band Anarbor.
Makes me think of "slate."
It makes me think of "slay" meaning to kill. It also sounds like the name of an evil guy in a movie.
Kind of like Ryder, this name makes me picture a high school movie from 1985. In it, a guy named Slade is the coolest, most attractive, and most popular guy in school. However, if you fast forward 15 years, you see poor Slade working on a gas station or some crap like that. This name doesn't sound very serious or mature, and it sounds like a bit of a pseudonym to replace a nerdy name, kind of like an actor might go by Ryder instead of Clarence. Yes, I made that up, I've never heard of such a case.
Natalie Maines' son is Jackson Slade.
A famous bearer is actor Slade Pearce. He plays Sam on October Road.
It sounds cool but it reminds me of the verb 'to slay'. Like "all the vampires have been slayed."
I believe the past tense of "slay" is "slain," not "slayed."

Cool name. On my list, definitely.
In the TV show 'Teen Titans', Slade is their enemy.
Slade was a British rock band.
