Baby vs. Gentry

Hello baby namers. My husband and I have fallen for the name Gentry, yes we know it may sound boyish but we love the name and plan to use it either way. We now need middle names. If baby Gentry is a boy we want a name that sounds strong and masculine. If she is a girl we want a very soft and girly middle name to balance out the name Gentry. So what middle names sound with Gentry? Thank you, Autry and Whit

Well, Gentry definitely does NOT sound like a boys name! Its very feminine sounding IMO and I would NOT name a boy this!

Yes we do realize that the english meaning is "high social class" but we are ok with that. How often do people discuss the maning of their name. I personally do not do that often. The meaning doesn’t really hold much value to us. We also realize people think the name Gentry is weird. People have told me my name, Autry, is "weird." Thats ok i think it is better to be a little off and weird than blend like the majority. But thats just me. Thank you all for your excellent guidance and please help us find baby Gentry a great middle name. Thanks, Autry and Whitley

Gentry isn’t a male name - please don’t use this for your son! Or if you absolutely INSIST make it a mn for a boy.

My son is Gentry and its meaning is also gentleman, so yes it is a boy name too... His middle name is William. He is 8 now, and I have only heard of 1 other Genty, which is also a boy;)

We just named our son Gentry Alexander 2 days ago and we have had nothing but positive responses to it.

My name is Gentry. I’m a boy. I’ve always received compliments on my name especially from well educated people . I’m very happy that my name is Gentry. I wouldn’t wanna be named any other name! And when I do have a son, I will also name him Gentry.

I’m actually surprised by the people that never heard Gentry as a boy’s name. I had suggested Gentry to my boyfriend and he turned his nose up and said there were a lot of guys he went to school with that were named that. He’s Black, so maybe it’s traditionally more of a Black name. I came back to him a couple weeks later, and said, "I know you hate the name Gentry, but what about for a girl." He told me that he didn’t hate the name, but thought it was very common (though I have never known anyone with the name.) He thought Gentry as a girl’s name was a little more creative.

We have a plan of naming our children with celestial middle names, so if we chose this for a daughter, we’d probably go with Gentry Aurora or Gentry Lyra.

My son is named Gentry. His middle name is Brion. He is 21 years old. My son attended daycare with another little boy named Gentry James. The name is unique, but is also a great topic of discussion for the young and old!

Planning to name our next child Gentry Dixon or Gentry Claire.

Wow! I’m dumbfounded at how rude people are. Why do people think they’re entitled to tell people what they should or shouldn’t name their child. They’re looking for a MIDDLE name, not your opinion on the name they already like!

My name is Gentry, I’m a 36 year old woman. As a child I didn’t like it but as I have gotten older I have grow to love it. I can just write Gentry on almost anything and people know who it belongs to.
