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

On My Dad the Rock Star, Willy's best friend was named this. I think it's an okay name.

It is wrong to say Quincy is a boy name. My real name is Quincy and I am very much a girl thank you very much!

Yeah it may be your name but it's traditionally used on boys.

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

Quincy is only a masculine name. It is not feminine and 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 prefer Quintus, as I feel it sounds more masculine.

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.

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

Quincy Morris is a character in Bram Stoker's 'Dracula'.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Quincy only suits boys, in my opinion.

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)


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]

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

Sounds more like a girls name.
