I quite like the name Blair for a little boy.
Until someone said they instantly associate Blair with being a girl??
Interested in your opinions??

I think of it as a boy's name and have never thought of it as a girl's name before. I like it.

I always thought Boy - until i saw Gossip Girl and it was used as a girls name. Now i'd say unisex.

I think it is a feminine boy name. NMS, as they say.

Traditionally it is a male Scottish name. I love it as a boys name, hate it when I hear it on a girl.

My DS2 is Blair.

Boy. But I have never actually met a Blair before .

I say boy but I don't watch Gossip Girl so didn't know it was a girls name there. I guess it's like Elliot and Reece in that respect.

The one Blair I know is a Scottish guy, so I think boy.

Clearly everyone is too young to remember the female Blair from The Facts of Life!

I do think of it as a male name though.

I know 2. One of each. I would say boy

#22 kerilyntaryn

boy

#23 sa5ha

Definitely boy. Quite cute as a boys name. NMS at all as a girls name.

Boy

Both.

I know a young boy called Blair, but I also grew up watching "The Facts of Life".
