The name Gage is a boy's name of French origin meaning "oath, pledge". Gage is ranked #328 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Middle Names for Boys and discussed in our forums with posts like "A brother or sister for little Jack or Olivia".

From the experts:

Gage was part of the craze for one-syllable surnames, with associations to tasty green gage plums and the mathematical gauge.

Gage was first noticed as a character in Stephen King's Pet Semetary--though Gage Creed was far from an admirable role model. That book was published in 1983, and the movie came out in 1989, the very year that Gage hit the Top 1000.

I love this name, and did discover it through Stephen King's character. The character hasn't put me off the name at all, as it's awesome.

Actually this name became popular again after the 1970's t v show "Emergency" for a character named John Gage played by Randolph [Randy Mantooth]. Lots of little boys were named Gage after this show. Emergency was the very first trauma/911 type show in existence and todays paramedics were based off of it.

This is my dad's middle name, it was his grandmother's maiden name. I was very surprised when this name became so popular, since it's a family name and I never considered it outside of our family.
