A bit too much like Quim. No?

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

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

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

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

Only heard it on a girl!

Traditionally short for quentin?

Unsure tbh. Sounds feminine to me.

MrsMongoose Fri 06-Sep-13 19:52:36

I know both genders, and like it on both!

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 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!

SoulTrain Fri 06-Sep-13 19:37:49

Love it!! For either but especially a girl!

Onesleeptillwembley Fri 06-Sep-13 19:34:22

It's a surname.

Ihatepeas Fri 06-Sep-13 18:40:45

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..

LauraChant Fri 06-Sep-13 18:19:15

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

cantthinkofagoodone Fri 06-Sep-13 18:16:17

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

thedreamersmother Fri 06-Sep-13 16:36:05

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

thedreamersmother Fri 06-Sep-13 16:35:30

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

cantthinkofagoodone Fri 06-Sep-13 16:06:56

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