If you know for a fact baby is going to be strong-willed and boisterous, then Trent is the kind of solid name that will fit them to a T. British in origin; Trent’s etymology stems from more than one possibility. Initially a surname for people living along the River Trent, this sturdy title means “the flooder” or “traveler, through, trespasser” because of the river’s gushing waters. Trent may also come from Trenton, the name of the settlement William Trent established during the 18th century that essentially means “Trent’s town.” Trent has a more striking effect than the similar title, Brent, with its double t sounds commanding the listener’s attention. With a name like Trent, baby will always find their way in the world—even if they have to forge their own path!
