Gender: F Meaning of Quinn: "descendent of Conn" Origin of Quinn: Irish Quinn's Popularity in 2016: #79

One of the first Irish unisex surnames, a strong and attractive choice on the rise for both genders, though there are now 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.
