Gauge Name Meaning & Origin

Gauge

Pronunciation: GAYJ (key)

Like Stone or Chance, this is a name that doesn't quite sound real. It belongs to an impossibly virile hero trapped in the pages of a romance novel. But this style of name is coming on strong, and Gage is a particularly likeable example. Oddly, its popularity dates to a not so virile or likable movie character -- an undead boy in Pet Sematary.
