I have only heard of Sage as a boy's name until I started frequenting this board, and here it seems more popular for girl's. What do you think, is Sage more of a boy's name, a girl's name or is it truly gender neutral?

  • I definitely see it as feminine, although I've never known anyone with that name.

  • Boy 

    Side note: I'm shocked how much this name has been popping up lately. 


  • I'd accept Sage as gender neutral  (because it's an herb) but since names like Rosemary and Violet arenever used for boys,  I have a hard time swallowing Sage as neutral.

    I think Sage is slightly different though, because it is a homonym and can also refer to a wise old man, or as an adjective meaning wise.

  • My DDs MN is Sage so personally I say girl.
  • I've known several kids with the name Sage and it has been an equal mixture of boys and girls. I wouldn't side eye it on either.
  • I've only ever met females named Sage IRL so it's a heavy lean towards being a girl name for me.

    The only Sage I've ever met was a girl so I think of it as feminine, but I wouldn't clutch my pearls if I heard it on a boy.

  • I had this argument with my husband recently. He wanted to name our baby boy Sage but it's all girl in my mind.
