Kent is known as the Garden of England. It was a beautiful place till they put up all the electricity pylons and built tower blocks all over the place.

I have been told that it means "Bright White" rather than just 'a county in England'.

I think that Kent is a very strong masculine name. It sounds knightly. Of course, this may be due to the fact that Kent is the name of a knight in a video game (I can't recall the name). I have recently developed a very strong liking for this name!

Kent is a very linear name. It shows honor and strength. This name rather portrays an ideal knight, a person who is strong to moral and principles. Kent is a very edgy name. Very angular and hard.

Kent is a reknowned knight of Caelin, a land of the game Fire Emblem by Nintendo. He is the, rather, better disciplined of the two cavarliers of Caelin that the player gets to use. He is a famous character of a famous game.

Kent comes from the Celtic language it means; Cudgel or Staff (long pole as a weapon), Strong right arm (of chieftian or tribe) or bough (main branch of a tree). The Kent was holder of the staff in Celtic meetings. He gave the staff to another person who wanted to address the meeting, as the only people allowed to talk during the meeting was the holder of the staff and the kent.

I've also heard this as a short form of Kenneth.

I've heard far worse, but this name isn't one of those names that strikes me as really cool or gorgeous. Also, the name reminds me of a ghastly Swedish band with this name.

Kent has a strong and determined air to it, in my opinion. This is also my father's name.

Kent is an awesome name! People should use it more. And hey gal who commented before, I know exactly what you mean about those short names! My favourite guy's name is Curt, which is really sexy too!

The Duke of Kent from Shakespeare's play King Lear... they just call him Kent. He's an honorable character.

This is also my dad's name, and often people think his name is Ken or Kurt (Kurt is also my Uncle's name, even though they've never met him.) Whenever he meets someone out of the country, they are very confused by his name (He gets Ken a lot, but when he says with a "t" then it turns into Ten.) However, the only nickname he's ever gotten have nothing to do with his name, so it's a good name if you don't want any nicknames.

Kent Ninomiya is the first male Asian American broadcast journalist to be a primary news anchor of a television station in the United States. The Asian American Journalist Association, often referred to as the AAJA, notes that there are numerous Asian American women on the air at American television news stations but very few Asian American men. This disparity is even more pronounced with television news anchors. Kent Ninomiya was the first Asian American man to be a main anchor.
