origin: Latin


Origin: English

Meaning: Pale blond one or dark

As far as baby names go, Blake is the perfect example of a study of contradictions. In Old English, blaec means “black,” but blac means “pale” or “fair-haired.” And both meanings are correct. It started out as a boys’ name and is still more popular as such, but is also one of the earlier unisex options. For guys, it’s hovered in the 70s to 90s region since the early ’90s.
