Quintus can also be the latinized form of the relatively rare Etruscan male name Cuinte (also spelled as Cvinte), of which the meaning is unknown. See page 74 (or 260 - the page numbering is confusing) of the book "Mediterranean Studies: IV. Etruscan, V. Venetic" by George Hempl, which clearly states that Qvinte is an Etruscan name taken over into Latin and more or less latinized.

However, some sources also state that Cuinte is the Etruscan(ized) form of Quintus. Since the Etruscans adopted many Latin names and the Romans in turn adopted many Etruscan names, I suppose both etymologies can exist next to one another at the same time.

I like this way more than Quincy. This is much more elegant and respectable. It would be a bit strange to give it to your child if he wasn't your fifth, but that's just my opinion. Maybe it would work if it was a fifth grandchild or something like that.

In Gen. Lew Wallace's famous epic novel, BEN-HUR, the title character saves the life of a tribune (a high-ranking Roman officer) who eventually adopts him (Ben-Hur). The tribune's name is Quintus Arrius.
