Meaning of Quinn

Quinn is an Irish-originating name that means “descendant of Conn;” Conn means “chief” or “head.” The name comes from the Irish surnames O’Cuinn or/and MacCuinn.

In the U.S, Quinn first appeared on the top 1000 in 1960 for boys and did not pop up for girls until 1979. The name was initially more popular with boys but the trajectories hit an inflection point in 2009 — the year the TV show Glee debuted. You can see the shift on the graph below.

Quinn Fabray was a character on the smash hit show. In the year after the show debuted, Quinn jumped for girls from #488 to #255 and has been rising since. 2009 also marks the high water mark for the name for boys, it started descending in 2010 and has been declining since.

Boy parents often shy away from gender neutral names as they become more popular with girls. Time will if Quinn remains unisex or ultimately shifts to being a primarily girl name.
