Quinn Name Meaning

A seriously stylish Irish name, little Quinn checks off a whole lot of boxes when it comes to today’s trends. She’s short, sweet, and to the point, knowing exactly what she wants and how to get it.

Like the chart toppers Madison, Harper, and Avery, Quinn got her start as a surname. She packs that same punch of posh yet is a one-syllable sweetheart like Sloane or Grace. Quinn is also a unisex pick, right on trend with Riley and Kennedy, though she does lean significantly more towards female use today.

Quinn’s Q start gives her a quirky side, yet doesn’t make her feel all that odd. She has a dash of unique without going over the top, a relatable sweetie with her own sense of style. Like Zoe, she has that extra bit of pizzazz to set her apart.

Quinn is a mature name, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t adorable on a little girl. She may not have frills and cutesy factor, but she’s delicate enough to feel at home on a little one. On the flip side, she ages with ease, a great name for a growing fashionista or bookworm alike. Another bonus is her lack of nicknames, a serious upside for many parents.
