In _The Sound and the Fury_ by William Faulkner, there are two characters named Quentin, one male and one female (the latter being named for the former).

Country singer Johnny Cash left a trademark singing to the prisoners of San Quentin Prison. The lyric goes "San Quentin, you've been livin' hell to me!"

Quentin Roosevelt was the youngest, and by general consensus, the favourite son of President Theodore Roosevelt. Tragically he was killed at just 21 when the plane he was flying in WW1 was shot down.

Quentin derived from Ancient Roman Quintilius and Quintinus. I have also heard its English meaning is "From the Queens Estate."

Can anyone explain how Quentin could possibly mean 'The Queen's Estate', or even what 'The Queen's Estate' might mean: all her possessions? her home in the country?

Even though two words, like Quentin and queen, happen to start with the same letters, they are not necessarily related. This is depressing. There are so many online dictionaries available. Oh well.

The name Quintin and its variant Quentin were used historically by other name variants to name the fifth child or a child born during the fifth month. Basically anything with five. However back during Ancient Rome this name had popular variants. July was the fifth month of then. Now it is May. So Quentin has the meaning of Fifth. Also I heard it shares the meaning of The Queens Estate.

Quentin means "Fifth" not just the fifth child. In history Quintus and Quintilius were also used for a child born on the fifth month as well.

I fell in love with this name when I was about 6 years old; what a wonderful name for a boy, which also is great when he grows up and gets old. A very strong, macho, but also youthful and positive name.

I hear it pronounced QUEN-tin and QUIN-tin. Cute name, my friend is named it. I call him Quen or Quent.

The French pronunciation given is incorrect. The first syllable should be "kawn," not "kwawn." [noted -ed]

Our first female, yes female Governor-General here in Australia is called Quentin Bryce. Before this event I never thought it could be a female name! Another famous bearer is Quentin Crisp.

I've always joked that if I were to ever have a fifth child (highly unlikely), and it were a boy, his name would be Quentin as it means "fifth" (I say the same of an eighth child- I would name him/her Octavius/Octavia!). I do think of Quentin Tarantino with this name, but my first association is always of Quentin Blake, the illustrator of the children's author Roald Dahl's books since I loved his books as a kid. It's a cool name with a bit of a hipster-y vibe to me, and not many names start with "Q" so it's quite unique!

A fantastic, strong, masculine name. :)

It's alright, but always been more of an odd name to me. Probably because I haven't heard it that often.
