Meaning & History

Feminine form of Quintus. However, it should be noted that in some modern-day countries, there are also cases where this name is a short form of names like Quintilla, Quintina and Quintiana.

Known bearers of this name include saint Quinta (or Cointa) of Alexandria (3rd century AD) and the Roman aristocratic matron Claudia Quinta (3rd century BC), who was considered to be one of the most virtuous women in Rome in her time.
