  • "My 3 year old son is named Sage. When I chose his name a lot of people told me it sounded feminine but I didn't agree. His name is Sage Matthew and I couldn't imagine it any other way. I get a lot of compliments on how it's unusual to see a boy named Sage and people always love it! He has a little sister named Storm. Her name goes the same way! I love the unisex names!"

  • "My son's name is sage. Before I knew I was having a boy, both my husband and I really liked the name sage for boy or girl. Because my son's name is sage I see it more and more as a boys name now But it's beautiful for a girl too. I think if anyone thinks this name is a girl name is because it's an herb and just an all around beautiful sounding name. But let's face it, girls have been stealing boy names for years! The meaning of sage is wise man, enough said. It sounds like a masculine name to me more now then ever, nice strong name but a beautiful name. I'm very happy I named my son sage. Also, I think everyone especially if you have a unique name gets made fun of in elementary school.every name is special and unique to the person. How a person feels about a name is state of mind. And if someone is making fun of your name it's because your name is awesome, otherwise why would they put energy into making fun if it? Be proud your name is sage, boy or girl!"
