Originating from French, the gender-neutral name Blaise means “lisp” and “stutter.” This name is notably associated with Saint Blaise, the patron saint for those suffering from throat conditions. In Catholic tradition, the 3rd of February is the feast day of Saint Blaise, in which people go to mass to receive blessings on their throats. However, another famous person who bears this charming name is mathematician Blaise Pascal—inventor of the calculating machine and hydraulic press. Whether you’re an enthusiast of all things science related or merely hope to honor baby’s future religion, Blaise would be a lovely name to consider.
