Personal experiences with the name Quinn: | Edit

My daughter's name is Quinn and she is always complimented on her name. It is easy to write short to pronounce and she never had to deal with having two Quinn's in her class. It is unique and beautiful.

She has to deal with people thinking her name is Gwen if she says it too softly and everyone thinking that it is a boy's name.
