It reminds me of the council of Trent during the counter-reformation, although I don't think there is a resemblance, the frontman for NIN is named Trent.

I like the name Trent. Can "Trent" be short for "Trenton", or can it just be "Trent"? Or just both?

I really adore Trent. I think that Trent is a cute nickname for Trenton. I adore both names. I think this is a name that truly ages well. It is a very soft name for a child. But then is has a strongness to it for a man. It will age very well for a man.

The famous River Trent:

At certain times of the year, the lower tidal reaches of the River Trent experience a moderately large tidal wave commonly known as the Trent Aegir. Taking its name from the Norse God of the ocean. The Aegir occurs when a high spring tide meets the down stream as far as Gainsborough, Lincolnshire and sometimes beyond. The Aegir cannot travel much beyond Gainsborough as the shape of the river reduces the Aegir to little more than a ripple, and weirs North of Newark-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire stops its path completely. It is also alleged the King Cnut (Canute) performed his purposely unsuccessful attemp to turn the tide back in the River Trent at Gainsborough, if this is the case, it is highly probable that the tide Cnut attempted to turn was the Aegir.

Gaius Terentilius Harsa. He went by Terentilius. Terentilius was a plebeian tribune in Ancient Rome around 462 BC.

I believe the name Terentilius is distant relative name to Trenton and Trent. If you base it on how names form over the centuries. That is just my opinion though.

Trent is my toddler's name; I think it's classy and unique, not an overused name. I like strong names. It means "torrent" and wow, he can be when he wants! (with the attitude)

Hmm, I associate this name with both the character Trent Lane from Daria and Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails. The former is the nice but hopelessly lazy brother of Daria's friend Jane. The latter makes me think of angst-ridden, extremely arrogant teenagers, as they seem to be the ones who really like NIN. I do think the band deserves less annoying fans, even though I'm not much of a fan of them myself. Some of their tracks are cool. I like the name well enough, but the associations aren't necessarily very great in my case!

This is my toddler's name and it fits him wonderfully. It has a good, strong feel to it and will age well. One of the appeals, for me, with this name was that it's a no-nickname name. It's perfect as is. (Michael) Trent Reznor and Trent Lane from Daria were the only figures I'd heard of with the name and I still chose it because, well, it's awesome.

I think there's an actress named Trent Stewart, but it sounds like such a boy name!
