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

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
