Blake is a gender-neutral name of British origin, meaning "black," "dark," "bright," "shining," or "pale". It is derived from the Old English words "blæc," meaning "black" or "dark," and "blac," which means both "white" or "pale". The name's origins are uncertain, but it could be a nickname for someone with dark hair or skin, or a nickname for someone with pale hair or skin. Another theory suggests that it is a corruption of "Ap Lake," meaning "Son of Lake," although there is no evidence to support this claim. Blake became a popular last name in the 18th century, thanks to the English poet William Blake. The name Blake offers a variety of interpretations, with colors often symbolic of night and day. The "shining" and "bright" elements of the name may represent the sun and stars, while the "black" and "dark" aspects could signify the night. As a gender-neutral name, Blake has been used for both boys and girls, with its popularity peaking in the early 2000s.
