This is also a surname.

I really don’t like this modern trend to take surnames and make them first names. The poor children end up with a stupid name that follows them for life, just because the parents want to be different.

I don't like this at all, or the letter Q for that matter. No offense Quinlan's.

This is my name, and I like it and have never met another person who had the same first name as me, but I would not choose this for my child.

I much prefer Quinn.

I’ve loved this name ever since I first heard it and its meaning. I named my son Quinlan in 1998 and still love it.

I just named my son Quinlan. This is a beautiful name with lots of nicknames. I like how it's unique and simple. I hate boring common names. My husband and I have a lot of Irish heritage, so we found this name fitting. It's also the name of a bad ass character on a book series/ show we love called The Strain!

My 18 year old daughter is named Quinlan and she has never had a bad experience with it! She loves her name and doesn't shorten it in any form.

The name of a small town in Texas near Lake Tawakoni. The town of Quinlan began as a train depot in 1892. It was named after George Austin Quinlan, who was the general manager and vice president of the Houston and Texas Central Railway at the time.

I'm not big on names that begin with the letter Q, and Quinlan is no exception. It simply sounds ugly to me on a male, and unimaginable on a female.

Quinlan is the most beautiful name for a girl. She gets Quin and Quinny also.

The name Quinlan was given to 80 baby boys born in the US in 2012. It's kind of a cool name, I think.

One of 'the Ashleys' in Recess was called Ashley Quinlan.

I knew a boy at school with the last name 'Quinlan'. It is for this reason that I cannot think of it as a first name. It is also very ugly.

No, just no. I can't believe people actually consider this a name. Quinn, albeit popular nowadays, is a much better name.

A famous bearer of this name is Quinlan Vos an unorthodox Jedi Knight in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars T.V. series and Clone Wars comics/graphic novels.

Very sharp and interesting. The "Quin" is weighted down by "Lan".

I really love this name. It's got a musical quality to it. I like the spelling Quinlen better, though.

Who the hell names their kid Quinlan? Why would you pick a name beginning with a "Q" anyways? Makes me think of a nerd with massive glasses and braces.

I thought this name would be something to do with the number 5, hence the quin.

I usually don't like names with a ''kwi'' sound to them, but Quinn and Quinlan are exceptions to the rule. Quinn is quite popular nowadays, and I don't really like the sound of Quincy, so this could be a nice middle name to Ewan, if I ever have a son. It doesn't appear to have a religious background, it's quite short and simple, it doesn't sound infantile or pretentious, and it's just pleasant-sounding.

I know a little girl named Quinlan, and I've always thought of the name as feminine.

A nice alternative to Quinn. I have also seen it spelt Quinlyn, Quinlon, Quinlen.
