Meaning:Wise; Prophet; Aromatic spice
Give the newest little herb in your family a garden a name to match! This gender-neutral Latin-originating name means “wise” and “prophet,” but it’s also known in English for being an aromatic spice. This baby name references the Seven Sages of Greece, ancient philosophers who promoted different principles, including "moderation is best in all things” and “Know thyself.” Actress Toni Collette wisely chose the name for her daughter in 2008, as did Ben Hur actor Jack Huston in 2013. If you want to wish only the best health for your little one or encourage them to be as wise as a philosopher, the name Sage would be a thoughtful choice.
