Blaire is a gender-neutral title derived from the Gaelic word blár, meaning “plain, field, battlefield.” This Scottish title began as a surname and is also spelled as Blare, Blair, and Blayr, originally written as “de Blare.” You may also encounter several places with this name while venturing throughout Scotland. Originally a masculine name, Blaire has become gender-fluid and will grant baby the freedom to express themselves. Fun fact: author of 1984 George Orwell’s real name is Eric Arthur Blair. Whether you’re an English literature buff or wish to honor your Scottish heritage, Blaire is a classic choice that baby will undoubtedly love.
