Should Stephen King be credited for making Gage leap onto the name charts in 1989, the same year the movie version of “Pet Sematary” was released? Probably. Though the character Gage was a demonic toddler, parents of male babies weren’t scared off, giving the name to their innocent offspring beginning that year. Gage dates to the 14th century as an English surname with French origins and means someone who is a pledge or a money lender. It didn’t become a first name until modern times.
