If you want to name your kid something simply pretty, I think Paige (or Page) would be it. And it isn't overly used.
-- Tbird  6/23/2005
Well... I think this sounds too much like "pages" in a book.

I called my daughter Paige and a lot of people thought it was silly. But now they all love it and it really suits her. I think it sounds lovely and it is not an overly used named over here in Ireland.

I named my first born ... Paije ... Her father chose the name and I chose the spelling of it. Of course I will never find her name on anything, but does it really even matter?

My name is Paige and all I can say is I love it. At first I didn't like it because everyone always made fun of my name because it's so close to pages in a book, but after a while I really started to like it. It's not very common and it sounds pretty but I would really like to learn more about it. Like where it comes from and what it really means. I think it would be fun to learn about my name a little more.

Well, my name is Paige and I know exactly what you mean about loving it now but hating it then. I was ALWAYS so embarrassed about my name until I was a teenager. Suddenly eveyone who heard my name told me how much they loved it or how pretty it was. I always get positive comments about my name. I am 34 now and I have enjoyed more than 20 years of good comments and only a few elementary school years of teasing. I love it so much, I proudly state it whenever I can. :-)

I like this name, because my favorite "Charmed" character is Paige Matthiews.

Though it does not say on this website, I looked in a book of names and the name Paige ment Little Attendant.

I once saw this name spelt Payge. I have a friend called "Paige", and her uncle calls her "looseleaf."

I love this name. It is feminine yet strong. It is definitely gaining in popularity.
-- Anonymous User  4/25/2006
I know quite a few Paige's so it kind of ruins the name for me, but it is cute.
-- chihuahualover168  5/31/2006
I do not like this name for a few reasons. First of all, I think it sounds too similar to pages in a book. I also do not like the Paiges I have met in my lifetime. I would never name my child this.
-- Anonymous User  7/3/2006
I love the name Paige. It sounds pretty. It would be pretty even for a child. If children act theit age, the girls at least would appreciate this name.

I think this name with Aby is beautiful. If I had twins, the 1st born would be Paige-Abby (first and middle but meant to be said together). 2nd born would be Dawn-Ally (same thing).
-- stormy_lovegood  8/10/2006
Nasty, curt name.
1. Page=attendant, bell-hop etc..
2. Page someone
3. Leaf of paper in a book.
Blech!

There is a girl from Extreme Makeover Home Edition called Paige. I'm not sure of her last name.
-- flipflop1215  12/11/2006
I absolutely LOVE this name! Hearing the name makes me think of a person who's funny, kind, and energetic.
-- _clippit_  12/13/2006
I love the name Paige! It is my middle name. Did you know that Paige is the best middle name under the sun? Yeah, it goes with ANYTHING! Throw any name out there and then pair it up with Paige. It goes no matter what! Agnes Paige, Kayley Paige, Anais Paige, Jessica Paige, anything! All I ask is parents, don't change the spelling so it is Kre8tif. That will spoil any name. I mean the world could use some more Paiges, but not Paije, Paiheje, Payge, or anything else!
-- Anonymous User  12/30/2006
I like this name, even though I think of it more as a middle name. But it's still a cool name.
-- amber monkey  1/7/2007
The breathtakingly beautiful voice of Belle in Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" belongs to actress Paige O'Hara.
-- Tango  2/2/2007
I like this name. I think it sounds strong and confident. I prefer it spelt this way, with an "i". I like how this is an uncommon name, too. Maybe in the future I'll use it as a middle name.
-- scarletquillraven  2/21/2007
I don't know why, I just really dislike this name. I hate the way it sounds for some reason, even though I know a few people with this as their middle name. It's kind of boring and not very feminine or pretty at all.

Well, I can't believe I am the first to mention this, but Paige Fox is a character from the comic strip Foxtrot, by Bill Amend.

"Servant" is a lovely choice for a boy or a girl. *rolls eyes*
-- Anonymous User  4/11/2007
I think this name is pretty. I'm surprised how common it is now. It wasn't very common when I was little but today it is more popular.
-- CharlieRob  5/10/2007
I think this is a pretty name, except I have never met a girl named Paige that was not mean and all full of herself, therefore when I meet someone with this name it gives me a bad impression of them, unfortunately. Still, names do not mean everything so I guess it is an okay name.
-- maggie_angel  6/2/2007
Oh right, this name certainly isn't common at all, right? WRONG! This is by far one of the most popular girls' names of both the 1990s and 2000s. Really everyone, check the popularity data. This name would be somewhat more pleasant if it wasn't so common.
-- Ouaie  6/14/2007
Naming your daughter Paige is like naming your daughter "Manservant," with an "e" or an "i" thrown in somewhere, like "Manservaint," or "Manservante."
-- Rama  6/15/2007
My name is Heather Paige. I agree with the previous-poster who stated that Paige is a great middle name. It goes well with almost any other non-two syllable name. I did not like it when I was young but when I hit high school I began liking it pretty well and then so many of my friends and such fell in love with it that several of them have given this name as a middle name for their daughters. Simple and quaint. Blessings.
-- hpblum  6/27/2007
My name is Paige, and I think my name is a rather unique one. My parents had gotten the idea from Jimmy Page. But I spell mine with an i.
-- simpegirl81  7/18/2007
I love this name. It is very simple, yet very pretty. I could see myself naming by daughter this.
-- sharonrenee  7/22/2007
What a stupid name. A page is either something in a book or some nobleman's gofer. What a lovely name to give a girl!
-- johann14  9/25/2007
What an aspiration for a child - "servant". It's TEH Cuteness! Cold like a dead fish and twice as rank.
-- Anonymous User  9/27/2007
This name would be cute if it wasn't for its meaning. But the meaning ruins it all!
-- Anonymous User  10/29/2007
It's a good name. Different.
-- lilly_g  2/12/2008
Why this name? It means "MANSERVANT".

Paige "Husk" Guthrie, a Marvel Comics superhero and member of Generation X, and later, the X-Men.
-- FMRadio  2/20/2008
For everyone who said Paige is a bad name because of its meaning, you obviously don't have a brain. "Servant" isn't always a bad word, and "attendant" isn't a negative word at all. It could mean someone who is there for someone who is sick, or someone who tends to other's needs. And, back in medieval times, a page was a young boy who was an apprentice to a knight. If you ask me, it is a strong, beautiful name for a girl or boy, though I think it better for a girl.
-- Briseis  2/25/2008
"For everyone who said Paige is a bad name because of its meaning, you obviously don't have a brain."

Obviously they do otherwise they'd not be typing. D'oh.

It's setting the bar a little bit low to use this on a kid. Seriously, a poor aspirational name. Other than that, it just sounds cold and empty. I've never met a real life Paige. My only experience has been ditzy, shallow or nasty types in American films.
-- Anonymous User  8/4/2009
This name is truly pretty.
-- jasmineenimsaj  3/4/2008
I am a Paige and as a child I couldn't stand it, everyone who heard my name told me how pretty it was. No one else had it. Now (I'm 16) I don't think it's too bad, and since there are more Paiges I don't get the pretty comments. Although it is annoying for there to be more than one Paige.
-- Paijurly  3/19/2008
This name is very "usual" but I like it. Who cares if it is a freaky or dumb name? All I think is that it's pretty!
-- Anonymous User  4/13/2008
It's a very pretty name, but too popular, and a bit plain.

Ugly as sin and what a stupid meaning.

My mother's name is Paige and she's an accountant. Fitting, isn't it?
-- Neko  6/9/2008
An appealing name -- to me, anyhow -- but I don't care for the meaning.
-- WilderThanBridget  10/26/2008
What a lovely name (but I don't like the origin meaning: "little boy"). Anyway, it is not the girl's fault that this beautiful names sounds like something in a book.
-- EllyKash  10/30/2008
Paige is Matt Damon's middle name.
-- Shibbeh  11/5/2008
There's so many snobby royalty names that it's actually kinda nice to see names based on humble hard-working common people like servants. And it sounds simple and sweet.

I don't see why anyone would think it's stupid just because it sounds like pages in a book. What the heck's wrong with that?
-- not_another_Jessica  12/29/2008
My name is Paige and I like it okay, although I think it is a little too cutesy, "young," and boring. It has also become too popular, which has only contributed to its vapidity. On the bright side, having an "i" smack in the middle of your name is great, as it looks appealing when you are little and you want to dot it with a star, heart, smiley face, flower etc.
-- user  10/1/2009
It's too new and too surnamey. I think it will date horribly. Why someone would name their daughter with somebody else's surname that's not part of her heritage beats me! After all, there are so many beautiful bona fide forenames already in existence.
-- Just Jonquil  10/12/2009
Why would you EVER want to name a little girl Paige when it means little boy in Greek?
-- Alora  1/2/2010
A horribly ugly name with a bad meaning to back it up. My mom wants to name my new baby sister this, and I shall not cease to try and convince her otherwise. I just can't stand it.
-- Black_X  5/8/2010
I have read somewhere that this name also came from France, meaning "young child."
-- youngwarrior  6/22/2010
Well it's my name and it really fits me. It's a cute name, I would have liked it if it wasn't my name.
-- teenagewriter  10/11/2010
I have always thought Paige was a cute name. The meaning is kind of dumb, though.
-- Chrila96  10/22/2010
Apparently the rank foolishness of calling your daughter "little boy" is quite acceptable. I weep for society.

Paige Michalchuk (portrayed by Lauren Collins) was a regular character on the Canadian teen soap, "Degrassi: The Next Generation", from 2001-2009. Initially presented as the self-centred Queen Bee, Paige evolved into a heroine within the show.

Paige McCullers (portrayed by Lindsay Shaw) was introduced as a recurring character, and love interest to the character of Emily Fields (portrayed by Shay Mitchell), in the 2010 television series "Pretty Little Liars". Paige was presented as a groundbreaking character due to her "coming out" as homosexual.
-- commonlyuncommon  3/13/2011
All my life I have disliked this name. I don't know why. I knew a girl with this name and she was nice. Recently, this name has been growing on me. I still think it's not a good first name, but a great middle name. I agree with the "It's just like 'Manservant' with an 'i' or an 'e' thrown in: Manservainte" comment, but the meaning isn't that bad if you interpret it as "servant of God." But you'd need a name before it that meant "belonging to God" or something like that for the name to have the meaning of "servant of God."
-- Meapergirl  11/4/2011
Yet another terrible surname-derived name. It doesn't have any real history behind it, and sounds awful in general. The name is also very silly. If you like the meaning so much, why not choose a name that means 'kind' or 'helpful'?
-- Anonymous User  11/7/2011
This name is so boring and unappealing. I really can't understand its popularity at all.
-- sunshinechild67  12/25/2011
I hate this name with a passion. I even hate it more when us African Americans use this name. I don't think this name fits right for an African American child. I am African American myself and there are other names out there other than Paige we can use. Paige doesn't fit for a black child, I can only see this on an Anglo-Saxon child.
-- lol_cool  1/9/2012
Me and my friend don't really like the name Paige. It reminds us of a servant and a book. Ew! It's chavvy and disgusting. It's also boring. Why would you EVER call your child ppppaaayyyyaaaggggee.
-- Anonymous User  1/31/2012
Sage is nice alternative.
-- Bazinga  2/18/2012
I do kind of like the sound of this name, and with this spelling. I don't really care about name meanings that much unless they're specifically negative, which most are not, but knowing this means "little boy" kind of ruins the idea of it being a girl name.
-- JazzMilo  4/13/2012
My first name is Paige. Personally, I don't find my name very pretty or feminine, but it's a good name. It's a little rough around the edges with its harsh pronunciation, but once you get used to it, it's not bad. I have been given several nicknames to go along with my name, including 'book', 'paper', and 'tree' but they were all given in good humor.
-- PaigeFTW  8/4/2012
I love the name Sage but not Paige. It sounds very plain and boring. Anyways, would you like to be named after a part of a book? No. The name is too common for what it really is.
-- Melys11  1/3/2013
Paige may sound horrible, but, when you see it on a person you may like it better. That's what happened to me. Paige sounds so sweet and strong, not girly, not a tomboy name.
-- MelissaR  4/1/2013
Actor Matt Damon's middle name is Paige. Personally I think it sounds much more masculine than feminine and don't know why it is so popular for girls. I mean, come on. "Little boy"? How did a name with a meaning like that become popularly feminine? Although on the other hand, it does sort of remind me of pages in a book, but still, it seems like it should be much more popular for boys than for girls.
-- mmcurliq42311  6/23/2013
I don't understand the appeal of this name. It sounds like 'page' of course, and it means 'little boy'! I know a lot of people these days don't seem to care about the meanings of names, (take Madison for example-it means son of maud) but a lot of people know that in the Middle Ages, young male servants were called Pages, only adding more to the true meaning of the name. There are plenty of pretty, classic, feminine names out there, but yet so many people choose Paige. Why?
-- Anonymous User  7/2/2013
My name is Paige, and while I used to hate it, I love it now. I know a lot of people say they don't like the meaning or that it's not a very feminine name, but it's simple and classy. And about the 'page in a book' jokes, I only heard those from my brothers when I was little. I would definitely recommend the name Paige.
-- DestinedAuthor  7/24/2013
Today, I was looking at the SSA's "beyond the top 1000", and I found that the name Paige was given to 9 baby girls born in 1915.
-- Anonymous User  8/23/2013
During the medieval era, a page was a boy who was being trained for knighthood. I suppose that's a pretty cool history to have as part of a person's name.
-- Icycoldhot  11/26/2013
My name is Paige, and personally I have never liked it. The meaning shouldn't matter too much if it's a nice name, but Paige just sounds gross and not feminine at all. How I wish I had a say in what my name was, but alas, I'm stuck with an ugly name for the the rest of my life. I always wonder what other people think of my name, since I have always hated it so much. I also don't feel like Paige fits me as person, I have never really felt like it was actually my name.
-- Sincerelypaige  1/22/2014
My 7yr olds name is Paige. I loved it since I saw it in my baby name book. The other Paiges I know are Godly sweet women. Everyone calls her Paigey. I call her PaigeyLynn. I have to spell it to people since the I is left out sometimes. She says some people tease her and say she's a page in a book. We've had people ask
"What page are u? Like in the book"
"Turn in circles so u can Turn the page"
She's the only Paige in her school. It's a timeless name with a sweet sound to it.
-- jpeck44  2/3/2014
Very ugly name, plus it reminds me of having heartburn when you say it.
-- Hushpuppy  5/17/2014
I don't think the meaning of the name is so bad. My name's Maria, and everyone I've met seems to like the name, although it means bitter. The meanings of names have nothing to do with it if you ask me.
-- Anonymous User  6/6/2014
Like others have already mentioned, this name sounds boring and a bit harsh. I also think it sounds too juvenile/young and too "cutesy." Therefore, the name Paige does not age well on a person, in my opinion.

Also, people from certain countries seem to be very confused by this name... One time my middle eastern friend came shopping with me and the cashier's name was Paige. My friend thought the name sounded awful on a girl and very unpleasant and "heavy" sounding. Not only does this name sound masculine but it also has a masculine meaning too! I mean what girl wants to be named "male servant?"

I think there are much better alternatives names to Paige that are short and sound cute and simple like: Ava, Elaine, Rae, Ainsley, Raven, Claire, Maeve, Wren, Bryn, Bella, Noelle.
-- Lucia Wren  7/7/2014
I named my daughter Paige Elise and she is 4. It is not common at all where we live as a first name. It is used more as a middle name. We get compliments all the time. She is usually the only Paige in her class too. BTW, Paige is not a new or trendy name. It dates back to the 1900's. It has just become more popular in the 90's and 2000's. I love meeting a 90 yr. old with the same name as a 4 yr. old. I knew it meant "assistant" when I picked it but I loved the name so it didn't matter. To me it has a southern feel to it but also a spunky artistic vibe as well.
