One of the most important – and exciting! – decisions you’ll make as a parent is choosing your child’s name. It gives your little one an identity, a title by which others will come to know her.

And while it can feel overwhelming to choose the “perfect” name, it’s also a privilege to name this precious person who you will welcome into your family soon. Watching her grow into that identity is one of the greatest joys of parenthood! 

Before my son was born we had an idea of what to name him, but it was when we cradled him in our arms for the first time that we knew what his name should be.

These days, we see so clearly how that name defines him! Names hold special meaning, and we want to help you in the discovery of the best middle name for your little one.

Perhaps you’re feeling the pressure because you haven’t heard a middle name you just love yet. In an effort to eliminate endless searches on parenting forums and social media, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of the best middle names for Sage.

The sound of your daughter’s name should evoke peace, joy, and even a sense of uniqueness! It’s important to give her a name that is both precious to you and also flatters your last name!

The name sage is of Latin origin, and means “wise”. Sage as a middle name can be used for both boys and girls, but is more common as a middle name for girls.

It may also be regarded as a variant of the French word Seagal which means “liquid”. Another meaning attributed to it is from an Arabic language word meaning “to flow”.

In Welsh, it means “magical plant” or “plant of wisdom.” The root word is from the Latin sapius which also means wisdom.

Sage is also considered as a nature / plant inspired name meaning “herb.” Sage is an herb that has been used medicinally since ancient times and was even burned as incense during medieval coronations. The flowers of the plant, which grows up to three feet high, bloom in greenish-white bunches and its knotted stems grow fragrant leaves that are used to flavor food or make medicinal tea.



  • How does each middle name sound with Sage? 


The name Sage has a beautiful simplicity which allows it to pair wonderfully with many different middle names. It’s elegant and graceful enough to be used with both traditional and modern middle names.

Have you ever said a name and thought, Wow, that felt like a mouthful! or Hmm, I don’t love how that sounds…? Generally, that’s because the name lacks cadence. Cadence is the rhythmic flow of a set of sounds or words. Like a meter in a song, cadence gives words a pulse or beat. A desirable cadence can be achieved by following a pattern of syllables and sounds.

For example, the name Sage Marie Everett follows a 1:2:3 syllable pattern so the name has a good “beat.” It flows easily as you say it and doesn’t sound awkward or feel like a mouthful of words. Since Sage is a one-syllable name, it may pair best with middle names that have multiple syllables!

For example, if you choose a one-syllable middle name, say Sage Jane, the name is still pretty but feels “choppy.” On the other hand, Sage Marie has a nice ring because the middle name is at least two syllables.

This is not always the case but is a good general rule to follow. Typically, mixed syllable names sound best because they create cadence!

When trying to determine the cadence of your baby’s potential name, take time to say it out loud in different tones.

What does it sound like in a comforting tone? How about when you introduce her to a new teacher? And now in your high-pitched mom voice (you know the one)?

If it feels like too much, makes you laugh, or just doesn’t flow, then you’ll know it’s not the right combination!

While cadence is important, naming is also a kind of art – sometimes it has to make sense to the eye (or ears!) of the beholder.


  • What do the two names mean together?


Your daughter’s first name needs a good companion! And that’s why it matters how her middle name complements her first name.

Is there another name that has a special meaning to you? For example, my son’s first name means, “God has been gracious,” and his middle name means, “valiant protector.” Together his name loosely translates “gracious protector,” and we find it perfect for an eldest son!

It doesn’t always work effortlessly, but sometimes the meanings of names can complement each other as much as the names themselves! 

Another advantage of a middle name that you love – not just one that “works” – is that you can call your daughter by this name if another Sage enters the family or your daughter goes to school with 20 other girls named Sage!

It’s also constructive to think of how potential nicknames will sound with the middle name you choose. . Although Sage is pretty nick name proof, you can work out something unique based on her middle name. Example Sage Bridget can be shortened to Sadie. Sage Eloise can become Sagie. 

It may be hard to predict what nickname your baby girl will be called. (Sometimes a family member says something and it just sticks! My husband’s grandmother, Roselyn, was called “RoRo” most of her life because a younger cousin couldn’t pronounce her name.) But if you suspect that she’ll be called “Sadie” one day, consider that with her middle name!



Are there names that are significant to your family? 


While you’re contemplating meanings and cadence, are there other classic names in your family that sound fluid with the name Sage?

Perhaps a great aunt or grandmother has a first or middle name that you would love but don’t know about yet!

Selecting a family name is a thoughtful way to show honor or remembrance for loved ones, given that your families respect your decision and don’t feel like you are showing preference. (Further proof that names are so important to everyone!)

A few of my favorites

I love the meaning of the name Sage and how it’s nature inspired but also means a virtue. Speaking to which middle name sounds best with Sage, consider which one gives your daughter’s name a richer meaning and also achieves cadence with your last name.

Personally, I love Sage Meadow for a cool hippie name; Sage Brooklynn for a modern touch;  Sage Elizabeth, Sage Reagan, and Sage Victoria for the way they sound together but also the touch of elegance and class with each.

Whichever name you choose, may you delight in the gracious little girl who bears it!
