These are just some I know...what about you?


  1. I don't think I know any Blakes. It's funny how the name means black and also white.

    Ooh, I see you're reading Brightly Woven! I hope you enjoy it. That was one of my favorites this year...and ever.

  2. I love the idea of The Name Game. I am with you that Blake is a better name for a girl. I haven't read Something Like Fate yet :)
