WHAT DOES BLAKE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Blake

Blake is a surname or a given name which originated from Old English. Its derivation is uncertain; it could come from "blac", a nickname for someone who had dark hair or skin, or from "blaac", a nickname for someone with pale hair or skin. Another theory is that it is a corruption of "Ap Lake", meaning "Son of Lake". Blake was the name of one of the 14 Tribes of Galway in Ireland. These Blakes were descendants of Richard Caddell, alias Blake, who was involved in the Norman Invasion of Ireland in 1169. As such a long present foreign name it became known as de Bláca in Irish. The Origins of the name Blake is also considered to be Old Norse first appearing in England Yorkshire, possibly derived from the word Blaker referring to a village and a former municipality of Akershus county, Norway. Blake often refers to the British poet, painter and printmaker William Blake or to the contemporary figurative artist Blake.

Famous quotes and sentences with the word Blake.
1
David Amram
Allen Ginsberg was a world authority on the writing of William Blake, and had an incredible knowledge of classic literature and world politics.
2
Tommy Bond
It's true that Blake was emotionally disturbed - always has been - but he doesn't have murder in his heart. If he was going to do any damage to anything or anyone, it would be to himself.
3
Tommy Bond
The last time I spoke with Robert was back in May. When his wife was murdered, I talked to several radio stations in defense of him because I know how Bobby Blake really is, and as far as I'm concerned, there's no murder in his heart.
4
Michael Cerveris
I studied voice at Yale with Blake Stern from the music school, and he had me singing German lieder and Italian songs.
5
Catherine Crier
I think either Robert Blake wither pulled the trigger or hired someone to do it, but it will be a tough case to prove. I think there's a very good chance he may take the stand, and that's what I'm waiting for.
6
Terry Eagleton
Poetry is the most subtle of the literary arts, and students grow more ingenious by the year at avoiding it. If they can nip around Milton, duck under Blake and collapse gratefully into the arms of Jane Austen, a lot of them will.
7
Henry Fuseli
Blake is damned good to steal from.
8
Julianne Hough
I totally think there was a country hair phase. If you look at all the mullets, and Dolly Parton, and Reba's hair, Tim McGraw's hair, Blake Shelton's hair, they definitely had their moments.
9
Jim Jarmusch
A lot of poets too live on the margins of social acceptance, they certainly aren't in it for the money. William Blake - only his first book was legitimately published.
10
Lorde
Musicians like James Blake were a big influence on me. How he uses his vocals is amazing. And then Yeasayer and Animal Collective, who aren't pop bands exactly, but they do something that is so catchy and undeniable and so much fun.
