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!!!! :)

We like Verity for our daughter's first name, for both the meaning and uniqueness, but we are struggling with a middle name. I love cacti/succulents and thought it would be neat to pick the name of a unique plant. Hoping for something different but still pronounceable and feminine. Any ideas?
Baby Name Genie:
Not to be prickly, but this cacti question is a thorny one. Let me sharpen my quill and take a stab at it. Name your daughter Verity Jade, if you don't want a few barbs thrown your way.
