Quintana is a pretty-sounding, weighty yet also spunky name. Quinn or Tana are lovely nicknames, or just the full Quintana as its own is great. In a (parallel universe :b) world where I have at least five kids, if the fifth were to be a girl, I'd name her Quintana, probably as a middle name. Same goes for a boy-- he'd be a Quentin.
