Axel: Danish for “father of peace,” the name has been rising steadily, ranking at No. 167 on the top baby names list for boys in 2013. And if you’re a big Guns ‘N’ Roses fan, consider spelling it “Axl.”

Blaze: Origin of the name Blaise: Borrowed from the French, Blaise is of uncertain etymology. Some believe it is derived from the Latin Blaesus, which is from blaesus (deformed, stuttering).
