It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Blackie are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Blackie include: Blakey, Blakie, Blaiky, Blaike, Blakye, Blaikie and others.

First found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.
