I don't know for sure but I don't think so. I found the following on
the internet:


Kent < Gaelic Ceann "head, top"


The area of Kent was the homeland of a tribe called
the "Cantii"


Kent < a Celtic word meaning "border" which is seen in the
Welsh "cant".

German has Kante "edge, border, corner, margin" but I don't know if
there's any connection.
