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

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.

I just looked this name up bc I want to name my future BOY Gentry! People stop hating. I thinks its a beautiful naname fir girl or boy

I think that the comments about not liking the name gentry or telling someone please don’t name your child that is very ignorate and rude, who are you to speak to someone like that. I am due to have my first son march 8th and we are naming him gentry. I came to this website because me and my husband can’t agree on a middle name. I’m very shocked about thaws comments. To everyone else THANK YOU for all the great ideas

We named our little boy Gentry and we love it. What made us like it even more was the meaning "Gentleman; of high social position". I always remind him he has to live up to his name. :) The meanings to our kids name are very important to us. But it really it all comes to what you like. :) If you like Gentry for your little girl that’s what you should name her.

We named our new little man Gentry Lewis and we have gotten so many compliments on his name. We chose it because it’s my mother in law’s maiden name. I think it is a wonderful name for a boy or a girl.

My daughter’s name is Gentry Elizabeth, she is 12 and goes by Geny (pronounced Jenny ) we have always had positive responses to it though I had never heard of anyone else having it. I love that it seems to be gaining popularity.

When my daughter was born in 1978 I named her Gentry Michelle. I grew near the town of Gentry Arkansas and always thought it would make a great first name.

When I had our son in 2011 we fell in love with the name. We had only heard it as a boy name. We are very big on the meaning of a name. We looked it up in our babyname book and searched it online and found the same definition. I printed it to put in his baby book. It said the meaning was "gentleman, of high social postion". Back in the day in London that was what Gentry meant. . .gentleman. So my tough, no fear, fun loving little man child is reminded to always be a gentleman, to be kind and respectful. 😊 He is slowly getting there. I don’t see Gentry as a girl name due to its meaning but I have since realized it has become a popular girls name which makes it a gender neutral name (like Peyton) that the definition of its meaning is beginning to change. But I still have the baby name book that give the definition I shared when choosing his name. It’s really up to you and what you like. For instance we named our daughter Reagan...Some like it as a boy name. I have only heard it as a girl name. Each to their own.

Hello I have a brother who is 46yrs old and his name is Gentry James. Named after my grandmother "English" doctor. We are Black. Gentry in the "English" term means gentleman or gentle. So it’s fit for a boy. My mother named all of us a "weird" name.. Luciana and Hirlee for us to be African American. Hoped you found a middle name for your bundle of joy

I love this name for a boy or girl. I'm disgusted by the rude and disrespectful comments people have made here. Keyboard courage. Regardless, I stumbled upon the name Gentry tonight and enjoyed reading through the middle name suggestions.
