Etymology & Historical Origin - Paige

Paige is the transferred use of an English surname derived from a medieval occupation. In the Middle Ages, a “page” was, quite literally, a servant to a knight. They would usually serve a knight for seven years and, under generally fair conditions, were made to handle menial tasks (serving, cleaning, etc). Pages might also learn military skills and after seven years of service could be promoted to squire. By the age of 21, a page could eventually become a knight himself. The name is derived from the Medieval Latin “pagius” meaning “servant” ultimately borrowed from the Greek word “paidion” meaning “little boy, lad”. The surname was first recorded in the 13th century. Since we no longer live in an era of Knights, Squires and Pages, the term “page” is often used when describing an errand boy or girl. As a female first name, Paige was popularized in the United States in the second half of the 20th century, and was soon adopted by other English-speaking countries.

Popularity of the Name Paige

Paige first entered the U.S. popularity charts as a girl’s name in 1952 but took about 10 years to stick around with moderate usage. By the 1980s, it became crystal clear that Paige intended to climb the charts; and she finally hit America’s Top 100 list of most-favored girl names in 1990 (although it has slipped off that list today). Paige is a simple, unpretentious, one-syllable name that oddly sounds more feminine than masculine (given its etymological roots meaning “little boy”). Having gained most of its ground on the popularity charts during the 1980s, Paige is a preppy-sounding name. This name has wealthy debutante written all over her, and yet she comes from the humblest of beginnings. We love that about Paige.
