What do you think for a boy? Any middle name suggestions?

I quite like it, although it's not my usual style. Is it about to become popular for girls though (am thinking Glee/ Scandal).

Sorry, there should have been a ? at the end there.

It sounds more masculine to me but I've never seen those programmes

I always think of it as a girl's name because of the sister in Daria.

I always thought it was a girls name but that's probably because I know a little girl called Quinn.
I like it but can't imagine it on a boy..

It's a surname.

Love it!! For either but especially a girl!

I don't dislike it, but it would bother me that it wouldn't be obvious, on reading the name, whether it was a boy or a girl. I have such a name, and it is quite irritating!

A bit too much like Quim. No?

my friend has a DS called quin, I nearly died the other day when another friend called him "quim" She often mispronounces things and when i pulled her on it she didnt know what a quim is - the word quim makes me shudder but the name quin has grown on me. I did associate it with quinten crisp, but now i associate it with tarentino which may or may not be a good thing!

I know both genders, and like it on both!

Bowlersarm Fri 06-Sep-13 19:57:09

Traditionally short for quentin?

Unsure tbh. Sounds feminine to me.

PenguinBear Fri 06-Sep-13 19:58:16

Only heard it on a girl!

It's been a girls name to me for a while now because of the sister in One Tree Hill but I think it's nice for a boy too grin

I'd toyed with it when expecting DC2.

DD1 had asked if her sister could be called a particular name she liked. We both liked it and agreed it would be a good choice.

I asked what she'd want a brother to be called. She thought and replied "Quincy" (had been watching it with her Dad on lunchtime telly for a while).

I wouldn't want Quincy as a name, but was quite drawn to the thought that Quin is to do with 5 (triplets, quadruplets, quintuplets) and it was my 5th pregnancy - even though I'd only successfully had DD1 at that point.

In the end, I had another DD and DD1 got her way. smile

bananamummy Fri 06-Sep-13 23:17:23

For middle names how about
Quentin Alexander
Quentin James
Quinn Frederick
Quinn Theodore

Quim. Just. No.

valiumredhead Fri 06-Sep-13 23:35:00

Too much like quim, no way.

KittenCaboodle Fri 06-Sep-13 23:42:07

No idea what quim was until I googled.

It makes me think this hmm

Quinn is the name of Sookie's Were Tiger boyfriend in the books that Make up the True Blood series

If you like it go for it

That's what I think every time I hear this name
