I've known 2 male Quinn's so probably I'd think male first.

Quinn was the name of a detective on the tv show Dexter... That is the only one I can think of, so I said male.

I said male though I immediately thought of Dr. Quinn medicine woman, but that was her last name. So without the Dr. attached, I would tend to think of a man.

There's no way to know, but also I wouldn't assume that *either* was a man or a woman. Could be two of each.

I would assume Pat was the woman. I've never met a woman named Chris who spelled it that way.

I think that the older generation thinks of Quinn as a male name.

I really, REALLY wanted this name for our youngest son (age 3 now), but I could see the tide turning where parents were beginning to use Quinn for their daughters' names. I like to give my children gender-specific names, so I had to bestow a ...

I actually really like the name Finn. For the most part, I find that people differ widely on whether Quinn is a boys' or girls' name. I think you might be right that it is transitioning to a girls' name.

I would assume neither, but since I had to vote to comment, I prefer the name for a female. But I also ❤️ gender non-specific names, so I can see it as a male name too.

Where is the option for "Medicine Woman?" (Obviously, I chose female.)

Would your answer have been the same two years ago?

Probably, because I find the name "Quinn" to be rather soft and feminine.
