Paige was originally an English surname, a spelling variation of Page, derived from an Old French word meaning "young helper", similar to the English word "page" or "pageboy".

In modern times Paige has become a given name, generally given to girls in North America since the middle of the 20th century, but also occasionally to boys. Page and Payge are alternative spellings for the given name.
