A euphemism for English-speaking person. Used by French-Canadians to describe their English-speaking counterparts, especially those living in the Canadian province of Quebec.

It is considered derogatory, despite the fact that the term is a direct adaptation of the neutral English term "bloke;" i.e.: just an average guy.

It is perhaps the counterpart term to "Pepsi" (or "pepper"), which Anglophones occasionally describe French-Canadians, especially in Quebec, is a "Pepsi," (because of their perceived ignorance about sound nutrition, and their alleged penny-wise preference for the upstart Pepsi over Coca-Cola, back when Pepsi cost the same but was sold in a larger bottle).

It may be used in Australia. In the UK it is a common working class term for an average, grown, working class man .It is used with macho leanings or ironically as such. The intonation sounds laconic&flat-footed enough to have originated in the North of England. Cockeney /UK dialect uses it like guy.
Bloke will never be a name as such. Since one of the lads or men , is a bloke"

When used by American servicemen in the UK the word 'bloke' means Englishman, as in a local. Because of the similarity between English and American-English languages it is common place for the US serviceman to fraternize with the indigent, local population, especially in pubs. The word 'bloke' allows US servicemen to identify someone as a local indigent.
