- 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.
My daughter's name is Quinn. People think it is Gwen and HATE people calling her Quinny. Makes me cringe. The nurses in the hospital called her Quinn the Queen which stuck with me calling her that. Happy Queen.
