  • "Hey, my name is Quentin and I love it. I've had such good luck with it and even my girlfriend loves my name. My Dad gave me it based on the person named Quentin Tarantino. I've watched all his movies, reservoir dogs, pulp fiction, death proof, killbill, and more. I'm 19 and those movies inspire me to make those kind of movies and be a director one day, one of the best. But I can only hope and work hard. REAL ESTATE" May. 5, 2021: Report as inappropriate

  • "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: Report as inappropriate
