Is Quinn a boys name or GIrls name??

It sounds like a masculine name or a surname to me, so my first guess if I saw that name written down would be "boy".

But, I suspect I'm in the minority.

Either, not sure which it is traditionally but know both boys and girls with it. I would use it for a boy personally but wouldn't think it out of place on a girl.

Unisex for me as well. I love it for a boy or girl.

I would have said boy once, but now I see it as unisex.

Quin(n) means "five" or "fifth".

It doesn't have a "gender" bias.

I prefer it as a boy's name, but don't see it as a problem for either.

I think of it as a girls name. A lady whose daughter was in DD2's class last year had a baby girl and named her Quinn original.gif
