I really like the name Trenton. I think that Trent would be a cute nickname for Trenton. Trenton seems to me a mix of emotions. It seems soft and gentle little Trenton but then is seems strong and refined. So I believe this is a name that would age well on someone.

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. If you base it on how names form over the centuries. That is just my opinion though.

I live just across the river from Trenton, NJ. And trust me- that place is horrible. Disgusting and dreary with a very high crime rate. Not a good namesake for a baby at all.

I agree with ZoeAliza. Trenton is a horrible place after which to be named. Who in their right mind would used this name?

This name is a really cute strong name for a boy. No one is going to think about the Trenton River or area around England. Some people don't even know where that is! This is just a good name and the nickname Trent is cute too!

I understand wanting to name a child after a beautiful place or a place with personal meaning, like Paris, India, Vienna, or Virginia, but who wants to name a kid after the capital of New Jersey? From what I've heard, it's crime-ridden and depressing. I wonder if some of these parents even know Trenton is an actual place and are only using it because it's trendy and they think it sounds cute.

I'm sorry, but for some reason I find this name quite tacky. It doesn't have a pleasant sound, and it really doesn't even sound like a name. It's a little too 'new agey' for me. Trent is nice though.

This is a nice name. Trent is a cute nickname. Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen's brother's name is Trent or James Trent Olsen.

Kinda pretentious. But it sounds more complete then Trent on it's own, and where I live I don't think people would really think of Trenton, NJ.
