I am obviously too keen as i am only just about to give birth to a girl in two weeks, but am already thinking about next ones name and if a boy i love Sidney, Arthur or ralph which do you prefer...also my maiden name is Sage was thinking about using it as a boys name? i know sage stallone which is negative for me but still deciding whether i like it!? Surname is Buchanan so Sage Buchanan?sound like a scottish herb?
If it was my maiden name I would give it as a middle name, no question. It's a bit ambiguous to use officially as a first name to my mind, but that's because I'm generally not keen on surnames-as-first-names. Then if the child chose to be known as Sage, that'd be fine by me.
It's one of those sorts of names that has built in expectations, though. What if a child called Sage isn't sage but a bumbling fool? Like Verity the compulsive liar and Bella the ugly as sin. Too loaded.
Um I love all your boys names, I was going to use Ralph as a second name (family name).......Sidney is awsome .......Arther is sweet. Sage as a middle name is a geat way to use your name. I love it all.
