Can you make fun of this name?

Can you think of any ways to make fun of the name Sage (for a girl)?

I really love the name, but it's a little different so I just want to make sure it's safe.

  • To be blunt, kids can be cruel, so NO NAME is off limits to be made fun of. But I also think that a lot more goes nowadays than used to. The unique and unusual seem to be more mainstream than traditional family names. Personally, I think it's pretty.

  • Thank you ladies! Sage means wise and healthy, so far on a scale of 1-10 this name has gotten a 10 in my book. I just wanted to make sure there wasn't any surprises I haven't thought of :)

  • In my kids Elementary school there are 2 girls named Sage. I think it's a pretty name and I can't think of any way to make fun of it but children have great imaginations and they will come up with a way to make fun of every name.

  • I think it's a great name ... You can't worry too, too much about the name getting picked on - kids can be cruel and will pick on a kid's first name, maybe their last name, maybe something they do. You can just instill solid values and be there for your kids so they can handle the situations they encounter. Easier said than done, I know.

  • Wow, I'm really surprised that there are so many other Sages out there! That's totally ok though, it doesn't change my mind. I have never met a Sage before..... but I'm sure I will lol
