My daughter's boyfriend's name is 'Quinten'. I doon't know why this spelling is not listed.

I like this name a lot. I'm considering using this as a name for a future son. I would probably not use the name unless I had a reason for the meaning. I would use it if he was the third child so the fifth family member or if he was born in May or if he was the fifth grandchild etc.
I'm still thinking about which spelling I should use. Quintin is the original and I like that but Quinten is a more common spelling where I live and I like that one too.

Quinn makes for a nice nickname for Quintin or Quentin.

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.

Quintin means "Fifth" not just for fifth child. In history Quintus and Quintilius were also used to name a child born in the fifth month.

There was Saint Quentin. Quentin is a variant of Quintin.

The origin probably has something to do with 'quint' being the prefix for 5. I know someone that was named Quentin because he was the 5th child of the family.

I prefer the spelling "Quentin", because I think it looks more attractive.
