I don't like it, but I think it's the ultimate manly name.

I love this name. It's my nephew's name and it's very simple. I like his whole name (I'm not going to say his last name though). His middle name is "Owen". I think it's cool - "Gage Owen".

Rhymes with 'cage' for those who suddenly understand 'Ga-gey' because some people actually do pronounce it as 'ga-gey' for some odd reason.

I don't get why it's suddenly popular. It sounds kinda weird.

I love the name and was considering it for my son. I decided against it for 2 reasons: 1) it's too harsh sounding. 2) I don't think it will age well. I can imagine a toddler named Gage, and that's adorable. But it's not so cute when you imagine an adult Gage. It is a very "cool" name though.

It's like the word of the gauges my friends put in their ears, eyebrows, belly buttons and nipples. Do not use this as a name in an era of body piercing!

I think this name is ok, I guess. The only problem is that if you say it in pig Latin, it is pronounced "age gay".

Judson Mills' character on Walker, Texas Ranger was named Gage.

When I hear the name "Gage" I automatically think of a shotgun.

The name Gage is strong, yet simple. I love it. Boys named Gage have spunk, and a devious side, and I like that. It's not another Mike, or John.

I can help but think of a cage when I hear this name.

Gage is not a name. It sounds like gauge, which is a measurement used in various fields. How pathetic is it naming your son after a measurement?
-- bananarama  7/13/2008
It's okay. It's so much better than all the other Modern names, like Jayden, Aidan, Casey etc.

Ew. It isn't appealing at all, and it makes me think of an overweight, cruel, dumb boy who has no regard for anyone's feelings but his own. Pick something else.

The baby name book I have lists Gage as Old French, meaning "Oath." I like it :)
-- luminaviridantes  8/14/2010
This is probably the best name ever. It sounds cool, it is cool, it is used for cool people, it has long life (even as an adult it is cool) people who have this name are awesome. That is that.
-- iamawesome  9/29/2010
"Measure" what kind of meaning is that! Name your kid something with an actual meaning like Andrew or William, please.

There is a beautiful young actress named Gage Golightly.

I prefer "Gale" for a boy. So much cleaner.
-- Dawson  3/26/2011
I kind of like this name because it's abstract, although it does make me think of different sizes of needles (which would be gauge, sorry, I'm in the medical field).

It's a strong but simple name.
-- GibsonGirl  9/7/2011
One word: Ew.
-- blondieboo629  11/24/2011
I don't understand the appeal of this name at all. It's a book about dead pets and made up. Then it looks like gag. I literally gag when I see it. And when I say it it sounds like gay. Gay-j.

Gage is French for "pawn".
-- Kinola  6/3/2013
I actually love this name... I just love saying it! I would use it.
-- hattie98  4/3/2014
I love the name Gage. It sounds very sweet on a toddler but it ages well and turns into a masculine 'grown up' name. I realise that the name became popular due to Stephen King's 'Pet Sematary' and after reading that book I fell in love with the name and the character.

This name also has French origins. It directly translates to "pledge". [noted -ed]
