Nice name but has to have the right person to back it up.

I have been influenced by an acquaintance, but I really don't like this name at all. The Brent I knew was lazy and annoying.

I like it, but I've never met anyone by this name. Must not be a very popular name, at least not in my area. I named the main character of one of my stories Brent, though, since I like it so much. As long as it doesn't get too popular, when I grow up, if I have a son, I'll totally name him Brent, heh.

I'd never use this name for my son, I'm not really sure why not but I do think it's a cute name for a little boy. :]

I don't really care for this name, it's way too singular since there don't seem to be any good nicknames for it, if I had a son this would not be near my first picks.

This is my name, and although it seems rather uncommon today, in the early-to-mid 1980's when I was in junior high and high school, I was one of three Brent's in my grade (class size of about 200). Overall, I like the name and appreciate that it is now somewhat rare and unique. I'm also thankful that I never had to endure any bad nicknames or other name-calling with this name. "Brent" seems to be largely immune to that kind of easy schoolyard ridicule. Given my experience with it, I think "Brent" is a very good name to consider when naming a male child, either as a first or possibly for a middle name.

The only downside I've encountered regarding my name is the number of ways that people have found to mispronounce or misspell it! The single syllable name "Brent" seems like it should be easy to get right, but often I find myself having to correct people from calling me "Bret" or "Brett", both of which seem more common. I've also seen people misspell it as "Brant", "Brandt", or "Brad", and a there were even a few instances where people erroneously called me "Kent", or "Trent". The worst of all was "Krent" in an official school publication.
