I like Quentin - I like Quinn as a name on it's own. Quinn is masculine to me. I only know boys named Quinn. I don't think it is a pretty name for a girl.

i like it spelled Quentin, my husband's ex-gf was named Quinn and she is not very nice. But I still don't think it's that feminine. I always thought it was masculine.

I love the name Quentin, I think its a nice name for a boy. But, I'm the opposite with Quinn. I'm starting to see it as more of a boy's name, but I grew up only knowing girls with this name. So, to me its best suited for a girl, and I like it on a girl.

Quinton, Quintin, Quentin

I don't like any of them. The name reminds me of San Quentin Prison in California.

Just NMS at all

My ds2 is named Quinlan nn Quinn, so it definately seems male to me. I have heard of some people using Quinn for a girl, but it doesn't seem very feminine and the only ones I know in real life are boys.

My neighbor when I was a teenager was named Quentin, so that's how I would vote for it to be spelled.

I like Quentin best out of all the spellings. The nn Quinn remindes me of the sister on Daria though....
