[kwen-tn] /ˈkwɛn tn/

a male or female given name: from a Latin word meaning “fifth.”.

masc. proper name, from French, from Latin Quin(c)tianus, from quintus “the fifth.” Roman children in large families often were named for their birth order (e.g. Sextius; also cf. Octavian). “[P]opular in France from the cult of St Quentin of Amiens, and brought to England by the Normans” [“Dictionary of English Surnames”], but the popular English form as a surname was Quinton.
