This name derives from the Latin name “Blasius”, which in turn derives from adjective “blæsus” literally means "lisping, stuttering", and it is therefore similar in meaning to Barbara and Balbino. The English variant Blaze, in modern usage, is influenced by the blaze term, "flame". Saint Blaise was a physician and bishop of Sebastea in historical Armenia. He was martyred by being beaten, attacked with iron carding combs, and beheaded. In the Latin Church, his feast falls on 3 February, in the Eastern Churches on 11 February.
