Blue
 
Joe Don Rooney of Rascall Flatts and his wife had a baby girl named Raquel Blue this week. WDYT of the name?

Blue seems to be a popular name among celebrity babies, WDYT of it?

It's not bad as a middle name.

I'm not a fan of it. It's okay for a mn, I guess. I'd like it more on a child if it held some kind of significance for the parents and/or child.

I like it for sure, especially as a middle name. If Ruby, Scarlett, Amber, Coral and Crystal can all be names, Blue is fine with me

Ruby -gemstone with long history of usage as a name
Scarlett - from the name of an expensive cloth, as well as a color, with a long history of use as a name.
Amber- from the name for the hardened sap as well as a color (I do think it's only recently been used as a name though)
Coral - greek, from the name of the beautiful formations at the bottom of the ocean, as well as a color, long history as a name.
Crystal - gemstone (however only used as a name recently)
Blue- just a color. How many colors that are 'just' colors have traditional usage as a name? I can't actually think of any. All the others are also flowers, gemstones, etc. which is how we got the name for the color. Not vice versa.

I do think there is a difference. I don't like blue as a name, especially since it's a synonym for sad or gloomy. Eyeore's middle name might be Blue. Anyway, I don't like Amber or Crystal either since they have a dated/ almost trashy sort of feel these days, sbecause they were once so trendy. They didn't have a prior history of use.

I like it, it looks quite quirky in the middle spot.

I don't care for it but like it in the middle spot. I think pretty much anything can go in the middle slot!

I like it but only as a middle name spot. I would never use it for a first name

I think it can work as a mn. Bret Michaels also has a daughter named Jorja Bleu (that spelling), and I just love the flow of that.
