You have said this name, which dates from the 11th century in Nottingham, is derived from 'Marsh-town'. However, many believe that the name was brought over from France during the Norman conquest in which case the name comes before the place, not vice versa.

I have a hunch this name is going to be big in the coming years, looking at the current American trend of giving surnames to children eg. Mackenzie and Peyton.

This name is great, although I think it's better as a surname. Once I saw that there was a type of pot called a Fenton. It was weird.

I doubt this name is going to catch on. I mean, Fent just isn't a very catchy nickname, and it lacks a certain flow, you know. It sounds weird as a first name. Rather pretentious.

I know someone with this name and I think it's really nice. I like the sound of it a lot and it sounds very educated.

This is an ugly name. It sounds weird and looks weird. I hate this name.

Actually, I've changed my mind about the name Fenton. I don't think it's ugly or weird and I don't hate this name anymore. It's quite a nice cool & clever sounding, masculine name! :) xo.
