Truthful, but vs. Respectful thoughts vs. on Gentry/Jentry

Many people have negative thougts toward the name Gentry Paige for a girl. I am aware that it came from an English Surname and it a social class. It also means "Well-born, Noble; Courteous." People say that it’s way to masculine, but I think of it as a more southern, country twang of Jennifer or Jenelle, etc. I really like the nn Jen or Jenny. Paige is definitely the mn, which is my best friend’s (and the godmother’s) name. She practically my sister so that’s important to me. So anyways, I really just want to fully understand why people dislike Gentry/Jentry so much. Thank you!!!! :)

Genie's Mailbag

Emma in Western Australia
We have a boy named Tyler James and a girl named Gypsie Jade. Expecting our 3rd, which is a boy. I'm in love with the name Olly, but my partner thinks Gypsie and Olly are unique names and Tyler is not, so it won't feel right. So he wants an ordinary name. Please help with something unique but ordinary.
Baby Name Genie:
In the space between unique and ordinary is a special category of names I think of as "antiques." They are familiar and well-used names that are not widely in use these days. For your son, I give you Oscar Jude - a perfectly ordinary, unique name.
