It entered the Top 1000 at about the same time for both genders in the early 1990s, but it has pulled ahead for the girls. At most recent count, Sage was Number 370 for girls, 649 for boys. Toni Collette named her daughter Sage Florence.
The Greeks and Romans wrote that the smoke from burned sage leaves imparted wisdom, and in the tenth century, Arab physicians said that sage brought about immortality, or at the very least, a long and healthy life.
