I am being drawn to this name; I really like it. :) I prefer it on a boy rather than a girl. I guess it's because I assume a girl would be named Quinn only because of the "Harley Quinn" character! :D But on a boy, it's fresh and unique. Definitely a name worth considering, especially if you have Irish roots :)

I think I slightly prefer Quinn on a boy, but it depends on the individual.
