As in 'landed gentry'?

Thatsplentyjack Wed 10-Nov-21 23:11:05

Well that's an actual word not just a band, and it's not even a word with a lovely meaning, so no, don't do that to your child.

Absolutely not.

"Use the gentry"

Absolutely not! People on here come up with the weirdest names.

What about the name of one of the band members?

CoffeeRunner Wed 10-Nov-21 23:20:23

Of course not.

TrussOnABus Wed 10-Nov-21 23:24:02

Errr no

GreenWhiteViolet Wed 10-Nov-21 23:27:46

No. It's a word with an established meaning, and an incredibly weird one to use for a name. I'd wonder if Gentry had a sister named Aristocracy.

Don't use it.

RalphLaurenG Wed 10-Nov-21 23:31:45

Nope. 100% not.

OakPine Wed 10-Nov-21 23:32:55

Yeah it's a great name! Go for it!
Can I call my child "Wardrobe"
Can I call my child "Ringbinder"
Hell yes!
I know I know "Goldfish!"

Where will this end?

HolidayTime2021 Wed 10-Nov-21 23:33:13

Sister called Serf?

TeeTotaller1 Wed 10-Nov-21 23:45:46


Gentry & Gantry

MonsteraDeliciosa Wed 10-Nov-21 23:53:11

Er, that's not a name

potoforchids Wed 10-Nov-21 23:53:58

It's awful. And so is Salazar.

No it’s a word and not really a great word to begin with. People will obviously think of the actual word before a band from the 60s.
