My husband and I regularly bring up name possibilities with one another and the other night I mentioned that I loved the name Quinn.

I love it for a boy; it's just so-so for me on a girl--more trendy, less individual.

Well, it makes me think of these song lyrics, but then, I'm showing my age ... !

"But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here,
Ev'rybody's gonna jump for joy.
Come all without, come all within,
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn."

But, I don't get why your husband reacted SO negatively -- it's a perfectly fine name, imo.

For a boy, I like it.

I think it is a great name for a girl and a total yawn-fest for a boy (but it was my great-grandmother's name, so it seems ridiculous for a boy to me).
