"I have a friend named Blaise, and he's a guy. When I met him he told me that people always pronounce it the wrong way, and that it should be pronounced "Blezz". I'm the only one at my school who pronounces it way, but he answers to both." May. 27, 2010:
"It's a male saint recognized by both the roman catholics and orthodox churches" Apr. 19, 2007:
"A good name. My brother (born in 1994) has it. My parents named him after Blaise Pascal, the French mathmetician. Everyone thinks it's an odd way to spell the name, but that's the French, right? Crazy spelling galore. Pronounced "Blaze" as in fire or the white mark on a horse's forehead/nose." Nov. 9, 2006:
"I don't know anyone with this name, but I'm considering it if we have a boy." Mar. 15, 2006:
"I'm from Germany and i don't know some guy with that name. But i thinks it's only an Boys name. I wouldn't gave my daughter that name. Only my son. I like that name. It's beautyful. I think that the correct way to say this name is: BLAYZ" Aug. 6, 2005:

"So, 3,269 people will be asked" Is that you're REAL name?!" May. 12, 2015:
"I have the name but spell it Blase and I pronounce it Blay-ss not Blaze. It's origin was from St Blasius which was from Blaesus. Blaesus is a variant of blaze and should NOT be pronounced the same way as it is it's own word." Oct. 21, 2014:
"Being that the name Blaise was a male saint I would think that is more of a male name in origin. My middle name is Blaise as it was my grandfathers first name.
From wikipidia Saint Blaise (Greek: Άγιος Βλάσιος, Agios Vlasios; Armenian: Սուրբ Բարսեղ) was a physician and bishop of Sebaste (modern Sivas), Armenia. According to his Acta he was martyred by being beaten, attacked with iron carding combs, and beheaded." Dec. 25, 2008:
"My full name is Amanda-Blaise and I'm a girl. I know it says on here that its a male name but I've met other females with the name Blaise and I'm pretty sure it can be unisex. Either way, I'm in love with my name!" Oct. 29, 2008:
