Gage is a boy's name of Old French, English, and German origins. Traditionally an English last name, it means "pledge" or "measure” and was brought to England by the Normans. Gage might also have been an occupational name for someone who worked as a money lender. Literary fans and movie enthusiasts may recognize the name from Stephen King's horror novel Pet Sematary. Gage is pronounced like the word "gauge,” a title used to describe a device that takes measurements. This is very fitting given that Gage may also translate to “measuring rod” or “pole” in German. If you want to encourage baby to honor their word and weigh the benefits of their biggest decisions, Gage is a short and sophisticated contender.
