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!!!! :)

Terra in Oklahoma
It's our first child, and she's a girl. Our last name is Watson. I was going for Suzanna Adelle for a while, but grew not to like it. I've also liked the names Skyler Dean and Stormy Kay in the past, but decided against them. Is there any way you can help?
Baby Name Genie:
With names like Skyler and Stormy, I’m seeing a definite meteorological theme here. Not to rain on your parade, but the forecast shows a different name for your daughter. Name her Sadie Joy for a baby girl with a sunny disposition.
