"My name is Quentin and I'm happy with my name....although some people think it's rather posh sounding ....(.just sometimes when I'm hitch hiking I'll tell the driver giving me a lift my name is John, which sounds less posh.) In 63 years I've only ever met about a dozen other men named Quentin....and just one woman ! It fascinates me there are so many writers & authors named Quentin !" Nov. 6, 2016:
"I am seriously concidering changing my name to Quentin! I really like the sound of it and i really like the idea of myself with that name. My current name is unique too, but i feel like i want to choose my own name" Oct. 10, 2016:
"My boy is named Quentin, I tried for 22 years to have a baby, in the 12th year I had seen a psychic in Florida (something we did as fun on vacation that year) she said I would have a baby and it would be a boy, couldnt say when, so 10 years later finally I am blessed finding out I was pregnant, at 37 years old. I knew right off he should be named a "Quentin" although before I found out I had never thought of the name or any name in fear of hexing something :) We call our boy all sorts of fun names too, like QDogg, Qbert, Qbertain, and mostly and usually just Q, but the name Quentin I think sounds strong and manly, smart and exciting. He is a spitting image of my father who died years ago and never got to meet. Are we crazy people to be in love with our creations, I dont think so. :)" Feb. 29, 2016:
"We named our son Quentin Floyd in 1997. He was the first of the 5th living generation in our family. I found the name a few years before watching "Pulp Fiction" in 95 (after Quentin Tarantino)and liked the name since. He likes his name and was the only Quentin in his class in School." Nov. 17, 2015:

Up to correct people. Quite difficult to find a name for his sister that went, we opted for VIctoria and I think it goes perfectly ." Sep. 19, 2014:
"We also name our son Quentin, now we are French and Quentin is a quite popular name for boys in France. In French you would say: can't a (thats the nearest i could find) which i prefer to the english pronunciation, few days before he was born an English friend told me not to give my baby this name because of possible bullying, he was only trying to warn me but i was really annoyed. so far, he's 6 now, he's okay!"

"I named my son Quentin after the charachter Quentin Collins on the old Gothic soap opera Dark Shadows. I think the name sounds classy and sophisticated. My family finds his name strange, but I like it. His name is often mispelled as "Quinton" or "Quinten." One person thought his name was "Clinton."" Dec. 9, 2009:

"My wife and I named our son Quentin. He goes mostly by Quen, but I like the more formal Quentin.
Our family initially had trouble spelling it (Quin, Quinton and Quinten were common variations). Because we're from the South, pronunciation has Quentin sounding like Quinn'n.
But it's not a big deal. And we like the versatility and subtle quirkiness of the name." Aug. 18, 2006:
"Well i love the name Quentin im actually gonna name my first son that when i decide to have kids so who really cares if other people can't say it or anything like that i love it and anyone else with that name should love their name as well" Aug. 4, 2006:
"My name is Quentin and most people say it right if they see it written. I hate when people ask me what my name is, Because when I tell them they say a totally different name like "Clinton", "Quincy", "Courtney" or "Clifton". Some people can't even say it when it is Written in front of them." Aug. 8, 2005:
