Brent is a boy’s name, perhaps most well-known as the last name of Ricky Gervais' iconic character David Brent in the UK’s The Office. Meaning “hill,” “high place,” “holy one,” or “burnt land,” Brent has British origins similar to Gervais and his beloved character. This one-syllable and modern-looking name has, in fact, been around for several decades, both as first and last names. However, since the 1980s, Brent has been in decline. But who says you have to go with the flow? Perhaps you can be the one to kickstart the Brent revolution.
