Originally a surname, Blake started as a nickname for individuals with hair or skin that was extremely light or dark. Today Blake is a truly unisex first name, given to both boys and girls, from "Gossip Girl" actress Blake Lively to country crooner Blake Shelton. It has a larger-than-life quality in part because of William Blake, the celebrated Romantic poet and painter, and Blake Carrington, a fictional patriarch from the prime-time 1980s soap "Dynasty." Rosie O’Donnell has a son named Blake, as does Blair Underwood.
