    English: topographic name for someone living on the banks of any of several rivers so called, but principally principally from the village of Trent in Dorset, which takes its name from the Trent Brook, a tributary of the River Yeo. The river name is of British origin and probably means ‘the trespasser, the river liable to floods’.Scottish: possibly a habitational name from a shortened form of Tranent (Midlothian). The placename is of British origin and means ‘village of the streams’ (compare Welsh tref ‘homestead, village’ + neint ‘streams’).
