    This exactly. It sounds ridiculous and pretentious.

    There is, however, an ASOIAF character named Gendry. Sounds a little less ostentatious than Gentry.

    I second Gendry. I think it has the cowboy vibe everyone mentions for Gentry. It's also easier for me to say. I always trip over Gentry.

    I concur. I don't get 'Gentry' as a name.

    But a lot of people in America have watched downtown abbey and the craw fords are the gentry! It sounds very pretentious to me. Sorry
