Sage is more than a crunchy-feely name that works well for boys and girls. It’s an English word that describes either a smart person or 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 Jack Huston of “Ben Hur” in 2013.
