One of our twins is named Gage. When I was pregnant I read 2 different novels with a main hero named Gage and I fell in love with it. Not a mainstream popular name but also not "way out there" like alot of unique names. A friend of mine from France said "gage" in french is "a dare" or "a risk", but the baby name websites said "a pledge or a promise". I'm assuming the french chick with the practical application of the word is a more trustworthy source. I get alot of positive feedback from people when they hear his name. It's seems to be well-liked...
