Quentin is a gender-neutral name of Latin origin. It draws from the Latin tradition of naming children in numerical order, with Quentin representing the fifth place or a child born on the fifth month of the year. However, Quentin isn’t strictly reserved for May babies—this characterful name carries an edge, thanks in part to the popularity of director Quentin Tarantino who made his name with cult classics like Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, and Reservoir Dogs. The name also traverses the gender binary, giving it an extra touch of versatility and charm.
