Comments for PAGE:

If you spell this name Page it sounds like pages in a book. But if you spell it Paige it does not.

Umm. Paige sounds exactly like Page so it really doesn't how you spell them, they both SOUND the same. However, Page does bring to mind a single sheet of paper for writing and a youth in attendance on a person of rank or, in medieval times, a youth being trained for knighthood, where as Paige brings to mind a name (but only when seen, not when heard).

I prefer this spelling to "Paige." I don't know why, but I find the "I" aggravating. Probably because of the word "page." It feels like it's been spelled wrong, even though it's a name in this context. Anyway, I think this is a very pretty name, possibly because I'm obsessed with books, and you can't very well name your child "Spine," or "Binding," or "Novel," can you?

Page without the "i" sounds masculine if you ask me.

The origin of the name "PAGE," according several early PAGE family researchers, including Charles Nash PAGE, author of "PAGE FAMILY HISTORY AND GENEALOGY FROM THE YEAR 1257," published in 1911. The first historical record of the name PAGE was the son of Hugo dePagham, also named Hugo dePagham, who was knighted "Sir Hugo PAGE" in 1257 by King Henry III. It is possible that Sir Hugo PAGE spent some of his early training serving members of royalty as a PAGE.

In my family Page has been a male name. I suspect it was a mother's maiden name, at one time, and given to a son, following the English tradition of giving the first son the mother's maiden name as a first name.

I see this spelling more fit for a boy, maybe after the awesome gutiarist Jimmy Page, but I think Paige is okay for a girl. There are better names.

Can also mean Page as in the first stage of becoming a knight. They go Page, Squire, Knight.

Great name for a boy if spelled Page. The feminine version being Paige.

Wouldn't Paige be a variant of Page and not the other way around? I mean Page is the original word, not Paige.

I like this name but prefer the Paige spelling.

I've never been fond of feminine Paige, but after realizing that actor Matt Damon's middle name is Paige (his mother's maiden name), it caused me to consider my feelings on it in masculine form... and I liked it, and I like it even more after discovering the spelling Page. There is something handsome, quaint, rustic, strong, and antiqued about it. I wouldn't use it personally, but I still find it wonderfully appealing and functionable.
