Gentilly is a commune in the southern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 4.1 km (2.5 mi) from the center of Paris.

The name Gentilly was recorded for the first time in the 6th century as Gentiliacum, a royal estate of some importance where coinage was minted. The etymology of the name seems to be estate of Gentilius, a Gallo-Roman landowner. However, some other researchers think that the name is connected with Latin gentilis (meaning gentile, pagan, foreigner) in reference to foreign goldsmiths who may have settled in Gentilly in the Early Middle Ages.

There is a Maison de la photographie Robert Doisneau an international cultural center for humanist photography.
