Quinn for a girl?

I have two girls already, one with a floral name, one with a traditional female Irish name.

Male names for girls aren't normally my thing- but I really like Quinn. I fear my Irish father would be appalled...

madmother1 Fri 15-Apr-16 17:30:32

Agree with Turbinaria. Too much like Quim.

LOVE it!!! Would have loved it for my daughter but DH vetoed it. TBH, kids nowadays won't know the reference with Quim. I think it's a fab, strong name.

I'm sorry but it's awful. It's an Irish surname not an Irish first name. If you want to go for something Irish there are literally hundreds of more usual and more obscure names which are actually first names to choose from. Please don't call your DC Quinn. I'm sorry but if I were your father I'd be appalled too.

I like it.

LauraChant Fri 15-Apr-16 17:44:41

I like it. Reminds me of Daria's sister.

SmokyJoJo Fri 15-Apr-16 17:46:43

I know a Quinn. She is 4. Gorgeous girl, gorgeous name.

Dr.Quinn medicine woman ( showing my age)

Appalled? Really? You'd be APPALLED?! If I don't like other people's name choices I think "Meh"...and I'm Irish.

Loki calls Black Window a "mewling quim" - in Avengers Assemble (2012). It's pretty famous. Josh Whedon talks about the choice to use the word in the director's commentary, there was a hoo-hah at the time about it...

ShowOfHands Fri 15-Apr-16 17:56:04

I think...

Mewling quim
Dr Quinn
Surname

In that order.

Makes me think of Harley Quinn in the Suicide Squad. I like it.

AlleyCatandRastaMouse Fri 15-Apr-16 18:03:54

Mmmmmm Quinn from Homeland [drool]. Also Irish, not sure why that was relevant above, but I like it.

SwedishEdith Fri 15-Apr-16 18:05:09

Quim as well - no way.

WellTidy Fri 15-Apr-16 18:07:06

Makes me think of Homeland. RIP Quinn.

FurryDogMother Fri 15-Apr-16 18:19:13

Wasn't it Quinn the Eskimo? Nonetheless, I like it. A lot.

mrsschu Fri 15-Apr-16 18:23:11

Yes ReturnoftheWhack I'd be appalled grin. It's fine as a (pretty unexciting) surname but awful as a first name, whether you're Irish or not. You think "meh", I think "appalling"!

Linus33 Fri 15-Apr-16 18:23:37

I know it splits opinion but I like it for a girl or boy. Slightly biased though as I have one - DS2 age 11 grin

Floggingmolly Fri 15-Apr-16 18:29:14

I hate surnames as Christian names; but if you were to use it at all it shouldn't be for a girl. Awful.

Quinn from Glee. That's how I know it. I quite like it.
