Meaning & History

Possibly from the word "Gentle", used in the beginning of the nouns gentleman meaning "well-born man, man of good family or birth" or from gentlewoman meaning "woman of good family or breeding". It could also come from the English word gentle meaning "(of a person) mild in temperament or behavior; kind or tender", "moderate in action, effect, or degree; not harsh or severe".
