Quinn Origin and Meaning
Quinn is one of the first Irish unisex surnames, a strong and attractive choice on the rise for both genders, though there are now far more girl Quinns than boys.
Quinn started taking off for girls in the mid-nineties, possibly influenced by the popular show Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. Since then, there have been female Quinns on the animated MTV show Daria, on Zoey 101, and—most prominently—on Glee, featuring cute blond cheerleader character Quinn Fabray.
Some other, more unusual names with the Q-factor: Quintina, Quintana, Quinta, Quilla--and, on a different note, Queenie.
