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...
I've always seen it spelled Gaige so it's interesting there's no listing of that spelling here. I logged on because I was debating the popularity of this name - I assumed it got popular after Pet Cemetery. Looks like I was right.
I named my daughter lauren-gage i added gage on to lauren cuz i wanted her to have a unique name no one else had it fits her well and i thought the little boy gage from pet sematery was the cutest thing ever now he is the 2nd
