    Sorry, but personally I think it's silly. Gentry refers to an upper echelon of the class system. It's not a human name.

    I think that the name sounds like a strong gentleman.

    I agree with Ren here. I wonder if perceptions might be different in the UK and US though? (I'm from Canada, but am a total Anglophile.)

    I am Canadian and love this name. I graduated from high school with a Gentry (he's in 30s now) and always thought he was a nice, cool person. My brother in law's brother is also named Gentry and he is in early 20s. He is a super cute kid. Love this name and think it is unique name. I don't think most people would even know it refers to an "upper echelon of the class system".

    Snap. Sounds ridiculous to me. Would most people in the US really not know its meaning?! It also comes across as pretentious. Might as well name him Royalty or Aristocracy- that's how odd it sounds to me, sorry.
