No, I wouldn't. grin

But my colleague has just had an e-mail from a PR person with Quincy as his first name, and I naturally thought it should be aired here.

She had one from a Hadrian the day before too. I am quite envy.

I have got them theme tune from Quincy ME going through my head now.

Is she American?

I laughed at this once, but it turned out to be some figure from American History, associated with hte boston tea party I think

Don't like it though!

It's like the classy Madison in Boston circles.

I like Quincy, but then I too know a cute 5 year old.

I love it.

Quincy Jones. You couldn't get any cooler.

Vetoed by DH though.

Quincy is cool, but I'd probably put Quinn on the birth certificate and use Quincy as nickname.

PurlyQueen Thu 01-Oct-09 15:20:42

Love it!

Reminds me of Quincy Jones - I like it!

I'm against the grain on this one really don't like sorry.

Sorry but I don't like it. A quinsy is a peritonsillar abscess and it is pn exactly the same!

Um, I thought quincy was an illness too, so it wouldn't be a name I would ever consider.
Sort of like naming a girl Candida - isn't that a yeast infection?

HKT Thu 01-Oct-09 20:13:09

Should probly apologise in advance for offending anyone called Candida - no offence was meant

I like it; and DH loves it - he would have called DS1 it if he had veto!!
