Quincy is a masculine name.
Not every male name needs to be slapped on a girl these days. Let the boys have their share too.
Very handsome boy name.
It means fifth son.

We named our son, Quincy. I LOVE IT! We live in a very small, rural town and when he got to daycare there was another Quincy in his class of ten?! Small world but I love the name.. I call him Quinn or Quinny for short... I think it can be either a girl or boy. It's a beautiful prestigious namesake.

I like the name Quinn for a girl better than a boy. But Quincy doesn’t sound any more masculine than Quinn. So Quinn and Quincy both make very cute girl names. I’m starting to state my own opinions on names instead of saying it’s okay for both genders. Go me!

Quincy is a strong name with historical roots to the Founding Fathers; John Quincy Adams. There are many places in the New England Area named after him. The city of Quincy (waterfront town 10 minutes south of Boston), the famous Quincy Market at Faneuil Hall, etc. This name has a very classic, but at the same time modern feel with the "-ee" sound at the end. It may be a little too much to use as a first name if you live in Massachusetts due to the references to landmarks and towns (you'll be asked if you're named after the town constantly), but would be quite nice for a middle name. Other areas of the country/world would work better as it would be more associated with the historical past. I personally see this as primarily a male name, but it could also work as a female name due to the -ee sound.

I only like this for a girl. It sounds like too much for a boy.

As far as I can tell, the French place name from which the surname of Quincy is derived - namely, Cuinchy - was originally called Quintiacum in Latin, not Quintacum.

As a result, the place name may not have been directly derived from Quintus, but from the name Quintius (which itself is ultimately derived from Quintus). This seems feasible, if you also look at the forms of Quintius in other languages:

- Quincio (Spanish)
- Quincío (Portuguese)
- Quinzio (Italian)

(see https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quinzio)

The French form of the name should be Quince (or perhaps even Quincy), seeing as Latin names ending in -tius usually become -ce in French. However, I can't find much evidence of the French form so far.

Either way, it might be worth considering that the name Quintius might have been involved along the way of derivation for the (sur)name Quincy. [noted -ed]

Quincy only suits boys, in my opinion.

My name is Quincey. My mom said she added the "e" to make it more girly. I have met only one girl with the same name Quincey. Her grandfather gave her that name and it turns out her grandfather was my 5th grade school teacher. If you asked me 20 years ago I would say Quincey was a black mans name. Being now in my early 40's - I say Quincy is a pretty name and unique. If I ever have a daughter, I will name her Quinn and I won't care if that is a guys name or not. Power of the Q!

Who said a name, to be qualified as feminine, has to be soft and pretty? I disagree. I think that Quincy is both male, AND female.

It'd be ok for a boy but it strikes me as either a nerdy or old man name like Arthur, Percy, Cecil (no offense to anyone named these).

I don't see how it is a girl's name. It's not pretty or feminine at all.

Maybe it's from the strong (for me) association with the president, but I see this as an all-male name. It sounds like a girl's name to me, but the president is so big in my mind that he alone pushes it to male.

Obviously, from my username you can tell that my real name is Quincy. ;)
I am a male, and from my experience I've never been teased about my name. I have only seen one female with my name before. I'm not really sure if it's more masculine or feminine, but since I'm a male it's sort of biased. :P

I don't see how Quincy could be used a girl's name. I really like the name, but I wouldn't name a kid Quincy cause they'd probably be teased.

I prefer Quintus, as I feel it sounds more masculine.

Honestly, in this day and age, naming a boy Quincy is tantamount to making him wear a tutu to school. I don't mean to be awful, BUT, I really find this to be a girl's name. If it were me, and I just had to have my child have this name, I'd go with the nickname suggested above, Quinn, for a boy and Quincy, with it' lovely "-ncy" ending (like Nancy), for a girl.

I like the name Quincy, for a girl only. I think it should be a male and female name. I only know girls named Quincy.

I think it's a cool name, but I bet my kids would be weird enough without a name this strange. And I also think it's too girly for a guy.

I love the name Quincy but it reminds me of an exboyfriend so I could never name a child Quincy or anything.
