The spice association or the idea of wisdom.. either of those are just too strong for me to use it as a name

I think it's okay. When I first read it I think "That's odd". But then I think ... Rosemary and Basil are names. Sage has some historical usage too (not as much as Rosemary or Basil, but some).

The recent trendiness of Sage is what makes me not want to use it. For a while it seemed like a filler middle name (instead of Rose or Grace). Then it kind of went away. Now I'm seeing it in the middle spot a little more, again. The kind of come-and-go popularity makes me think it could explode in the near future.

I have conflicting feelings about this name. Many years ago I met a small boy named Sage and it fit him quite perfectly. He had very old wise eyes. the newer trend is that of a girls name. It's ok but it has seemed out of place on the girls i have met with the name.

I like the name Sage but probably not enough to use it, it's just a little too harsh for my taste though on other children I'd quite like it. I definetly prefer it on boys rather than girls.
