"My father named me Quintin, which is the Spanish spelling, but he never called me Quintin. He always called me Deany by my middle name. Quinten is Latin for fifth born son u was the forth born son. I didn't like my name growing up because most of the kids in my class were Tom Bill Bob J or Tim. I felt odd and different. Today I love my name and I appreciate the uniqueness of it.
I have a five year old grand daughter and she calls me GQ. Some time when I sign my name I'll put a :-) In the Q." Jan. 29, 2015:
"Many different spellings but I like this one the best since it's how my name is spelled - Quintan. I love it and have owned it since 1971" May. 24, 2011:

"I named my son, Quintin( born in 2007), had a friend who had the name,and said if I ever had a son id name him that cuz I thought it was a cool,unique name...the nick names we give gim r "Q" and "Q-Boy" . Nobody pronounces it wrong, and jus asked if its spelled with "e" or "i" . Haven't met anyone in years with the name Quintin." Feb. 27, 2011:

"I named my son Quinten because he was 5 pounds and 10 ounces when he was born. Quin-5 and ten, well ten is ten." Dec. 26, 2010:
"My son is also named Quinten. I love his name! We call him Quintenstein, or Q-Bop. He loves his name because there isn't another in his school with his name." Dec. 23, 2010:
"My 6 year old son is named Quinten. I really do like this spelling more than Quentin. It seems more natural-looking -the letters go tall, short, tall, short, tall, short, short. It's visually pleasing. He loves his name too. We call him Q sometimes. We live in the Boston area and sometimes purple will pronounce his name Qu'en. He hates it and will emphatically say: my name is QuiNTen. I would not be surprised if the name becomes popular in future." Dec. 1, 2010:
"My son was 4days old in the hospital before he even had a name=) Picking a childs name, to me, was the hardest thing i have ever done in my life! Knowing he has to live with that FOREVER! So at 4 days old he went from being known to the Dr.s and Nurses as "baby boy" to "Quinten" ... It feels good knowning now that adults and teens with this name appriciate that it's unique and uncommon. I didn't want my son to have to be a "Matt B" in school. I know he will always have HIS name and he sure makes it his own. He has such personality for a 3year old and the name fits him amazingly well!" May. 24, 2010:
"I love my name! My mom & 2 older brothers also call me Quint-Quint or Q; friends make even more, haha. People commonly misspell it "Quentin" or "Quinton" which really irks me. And yes, it should be pronounced 'Quin-ten' but 'Quint-en' doesn't really bother me much; I know they're talking to me, haha. One of my best friends' name when I was little was Quinton!" Apr. 23, 2010:
"I named my second son Quinten Timothy. MY husband and i had a very hard time agreeing on a name. When i sugessted the name, it was like a light bulb went off! The name just stuck. He's 18 months old and has so many nickname, Q.T., Q-Tip, Q-ball, Quinn, Quint, Q-baby and of course Q. I'm pretty sure he likes his name! I couldnt be happier that we chose that name, nothing else seems fitting for his HUGE personality!" Mar. 8, 2010:
"My daughter is expecting my first grandchild in February. She is naming him Quinten Xavier after my maiden name Quin and my late father's second name Xavier.
