What do you think? Not that it effin matters since DP has put the kibosh on EVERY name I've liked so far. GRR.

Like it, makes a change from all the cutest little girly names around these days.

I know a 20 year old Sage. Great name.

You'll have to put up with people making jokes about stuffing. I'm guessing there'd be a lot of "does she have a twin called onion?".

I love it. Preen. grin

I like it

I like it, and have to say didn't bring to mind onion/stuffing more nature/wisdom. I know a Sage and she really suits it, she's about 20, elegant with a hippy/boho vibe, super neat dreadlocks, into lots of quirky unconventional stuff and a super lovely kind person. I think it's a name that you'd grow into maybe, or maybe if your parents are inclined to choose a lovely hippy nature name you'll be bought up in that vibe!

Wonder if it's the same one OneDay? Which neck of the woods are you in?

Great, thanks - now to begin the campaign!

I like it - miles better than many of the girly, frilly names out there. Like how it means wisdom, as well as the nature connection. Think it would work better with a longer surname though.

I know a cinnamon and a chilli pepper. Sage is very cute I like it.

Sage is ok but on a similar theme I love Sorrel for a girl.

What if she turned out not to be sage though, and was actually a bit thick wink. It's a lot to live up to, a bit like Prudence, Patience, etc.

I don't think giving children names of virtues is a good idea - just in case!.

I always thought of it as a boys name but it works fine on a girl.

I do kind of like nature/plant names. I think you have to be a bit of a nature loving, outdoorsy, boho, lentil-weaving (I mean it in a nice way) family to carry off those names.

Personally I dislike the taste of the herb Sage which would put me off, but I do like those Sage, Sorrel, Willow, Rowan type names.

I really like it, DH would never go for it but then he likes Amelia and Freya type names....

It's accounting software to me. Sorry.

That too Legion. Bit like calling her Excel.
